"I was on my boat today and the fluxgate compass isn’t in the hanging locker. It’s not in any of the lockers. I think that because my boat is an early 40’ model in the production series the compass may not be in a typical location.…"

GPS receiver upgrade

The original Raymarine 125 gps failed on my 2008 Oceanis 40.  Based on research, I’m trying to install a RS150 GPS receiver.  The 150 uses Seatalk NG vs. the boat’s antiquated Seatalk 1.  Not exactly sure how to tie the new GPS into the network.  I purchased a Seatalk1 to Seatalk NG converter block.  The Raymarine Tech on the Raymarine Tech forum has advised me to run a independent power feed to the converter block.  That’s about as far as I have gotten, waiting to get a call back from…See More

"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…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.katekwame@yahoo.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
