Recommissioning of Electronics

I have identified a couple of instances where some of the electronics required recalibration.I am the second owner of our Ben OC 43, and am seriously considering returning all the electronics to factory default setting, and re-performing a full commissioning process.Does anyone know the distance from the water-line to the depth transducer?  This is the only measurement I don't have, but need to recommission.Again, I have a 2009 Ben OC 43.Regards,-Brendan See More

"Hi Larry, Brilliant find.  Do you recall the Part # for the LCD Screen and Ribbon at boatstuff.se? Or perhaps you can post the link to the part from their site.  My Swedish is not as good as it used to be :)  "

Mike Brown replied to RWA's discussion Questions From a new B40 Owner in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"As Chris mentioned there's a rebuild kit available for the pump. The kit has a new pump bellows as well as a check valve. Both should resolve your back flow issue. I agree it seems rather odd that someone wired the toilet pump to the engine…"

Questions From a new B40 Owner

Hi All - I'm the proud new owner of an '11 B40.  2 cabin model with 54hp yanmar, furling main.  Have had the boat for a few weeks now and about 120 miles of sailing (and motoring).  Love it, but I have a few questions about wiring, rig tuning, plumbing, etc. and I'm hoping to find one or some of you to help.1.  The shower sump pump will run once the water level activates the float switch, pump the sump dry (kind of a pulsing suction, not smooth like the bilge pump), then enough water will flow…See More

teleflex engine control problems

I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly.  But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse.  Once it passes that point it moves smoothly.   And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult.  I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More

Rudder post support

While surfing the net, came across a B 485 that sank with a supposed rudder issue.  Forum member NeilPride posted a picture of a bracket to support B40 and B43 rudder posts.  First I had heard of this.  Has anyone had this added to there boat?http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/f47/oceanis-485-steering-failure-160096.htmlSee More
