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.

Has anyone replaced the rudder bearings on a beneteau 40 2008/9? If someone has done this job could they please tell me what the part numbers are for both the bronze upper and lower bearing sleeves and also for the nylon thrust washers. The jefa? rudder shaft diameter is 60mm.I have !ooked on the beneteau spare parts website without success.Also I am trying to find the workshop notes for rep!acing the bearings as I know with the oceanis 411 the bottom bearing is glued (3M 5200) in but I don't…See More
