Profile Information

Profile Type:
Vessel
Homeport:
Sandpoint Idaho
About Me:
I sailed as a teenager, but never had instruction. 10 years ago got bitten by the sailing bug as a crew member on the J24. Purchase and rebuild my own J24. Sold the J and purchased a Cal 2-29, which I have been working on and sailing 3 years. This fall I was given a Cascade 27 with problems (like a Farymann that doesn't run, missing front hatch, and docked in an out-of-the-way marina w/o power. For the sailing community in Sandpoint, I am uniquely qualified to rescue her.
Current location:
Sandpoint ID
Destinations visited:
Puget Sound, charter sail in Key West
Looking to:
Rescue the Cascade 27. Move my Cal 2-29 to Anacortes, WA and sail out of there upon retirement in 3 years.

"Mike nails the freezer (and Refrigerator) item. Remove the woodencovers on the vents, and if they have never been off you will most likely find a carpet of dust/hair/lint. I drilled small screw holes and added screws to re-attach. Now it is a…"

"Cam, I used a wide, flat blade screw driver to pry it off. I took my time and made sure I wasn't forcing it and causing any dents or scratches. It took a little while to do but when done I had good access to the coils. One of the grills would…"

"Mike - great information!  I was hoping that there is a way to remove the wood grills. What type of tool did you find worked that didn’t damage the wood?  "

Mike Brown replied to Cam Whitlock's discussion Freezer problem in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"

"Hey Mike - I agree with you that there is no physical problem with the unit running.  My problem is the drain on the battery.  As a weekend / once / twice a year cruiser, I don’t have solar to recharge my batteries (yet).  I…"

"We experienced the same thing on our B43 (now sold and gone). We were living aboard and cruising with a fairly full freezer. Like you did I changed out the thermostat without success. I wrote it off to the poorly insulated freezer compartment but…"
