AutoPilot fail

Well on a weekend getaway we had the AutoPilot stop working. I was getting a ram stopped error on the St6002 display. Once we anchored I jumped below to take a look. I found the fluid level very low on the motor, on further inspection, the hoses that go to the ram from the motor were tie wrapped to the side of the platform the ram sits on. They were very tight on the edge and over time one chaffed enough to start leaking. Not a very good way to handle these lines. I refilled the reservoir and…See More

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

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:(mr.frankkwabena0000@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank.

"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…"
