WOW! I hope that Ike keeps going away FROM you. 60 mph winds are very scary...let me re-phrase that: VERY, VERY scary. Stay safe and dry. Keep my fingers and toes crossed for you here in O Town.

Sorry to hear that but you had some fun for a while, you live on the island side or the mainland side of the waterway. My sister lives on Atlantic in Daytona Beach Shores. But you have trees around so what out for flying limbs

I'm not at a marina right now - I don't even have a boat any more. I had to sell mine in 2007. Had a really great CT47 - but way too much to singlehand, too expensive, etc. I did find out that I was not a good singlehander after my partner left. I had the boat for over 7 years, 3 of which I singlehanded it. Unfortunately, I'm stranded on a sandbar at this point. At least I don't think my house can drag......

Bob - guess that's why your cat never answered my cat. My furry friend is from Trinidad - she sure needed a home. We're waiting on your friend Fay to come visit us - I'm so glad she didn't get any stronger over water. BUT, she still has a chance up here when she hits the Atlantic and then comes back.

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
