Back online after a LONG time with an interesting bogus link!

Posted on June 11, 2013 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

 I haven't had a computer for about 3 months so I haven't been able to blog.  And then there was that pesky writer's block I have suffered from for the past year.  Back in the saddle again with a refurbished Dell laptop that I am finding AWESOME for the money.

 

I continue in my attempts to single-hand the Owl.  I am still practicing manuvering into my slip at the end of an afternoon sail, but I just need more confidence through practice.  Still earning my Captain's hat, but…

Gee, how's that for a title?  Oh noes!  A nonalliterative title....oh well!

 

Life continues on in the marina.  I will be moving into the Owl in 2 weeks, around the Fourth of July.

 

Bogie the bird enjoys being out on the deck in his cage watching and listening to everything.  The man across the dock whistles to him every morning, and Bogie is most enthusiastic joining in the chorus. African Greys are rulers of the whistle...and will always beat you in a…

I remember the name but cain't picture it. I'll look for it the next time over. I should be doing some work on her this week. My son is home from Iraq for the month. He wants to go sailing so ....... I'm seriously thinking about cruising to Settlement Point, Bahamas. It will be my first .... oh boy!

We don't live on the boat at the moment but that may change in the near future. never know.

Seeping leak near prop shaft

I have a seeping type leak near where the shaft exits my B43 behind the engine. The leak is not coming from the volvo seal, it puddles underneath the shaft and fills this area with saltwater after about two days. I have read a few posts on other sites about water leaking in from where the shaft exits the hull. Does anyone have any info on this. Going to call Beneteau tomorrow.Thanks DaveSee More

"As Chris mentioned there's a rebuild kit available for the pump. The kit has a new pump bellows as well as a check valve. Both should resolve your back flow issue. I agree it seems rather odd that someone wired the toilet pump to the engine…"

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
