Hi Bill, You're a guy in the "know" about such things. Suky interested in a Pearson 323 (in the Dominican Republic), you know anyone with one? She'd like to sail one, between here and Chesapeake Bay. Any sites she should be looking at for info on one? Thanks, Terri

Cptn. Bill,
What did you think of Marrero's Mansion? I've checked it out on the internet and it looks like a nice place to stay. Last time in Key West we stayed at the Key Lime Inn.

Hi Bill, hope you and Andrea had a great Thanksgiving. How's the weather up there? (grin). Did you sell your boat or did you decide to keep it?

Mike Brown replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"There's no circling on the 40/43 winches. It's simply a screw off collar. WD40 and a heavier hammer should get the job done."

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Mike is correct. The is a vertical pin in the middle of the winch handle hole that pushed down and disengages the electric motor on the winch. Also, on my Oceanis 45, there is a circlip that holds the top on. I don't remember if the 40 electric…"

Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch

Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go. I then tried a steel drift and the cap never moved in the slightest. It is as if it was secured with permanent Lock Tite.Now when I say its…See More

"I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution"
