"My wheel leather is shot. Not only do I have spots of eroded / worn areas but the stitching is now going also. Instead of trying to salvage the Cordavan/ Buckskin or whatever color they call it, I plan on stitching up some new elk leather grey…"

"Sam, that's an interesting cause for the spots. I assumed it was where I had drug a jib sheet across the wheel when setting sail. It's time to do mine again. Mike"

sam replied to Dave Shore's discussion B43 wheel leather in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"My wheels have spots where the leather has "worn". It is noticeably lower with surface loss in a few areas. The best theory so far is that sunscreen attacked the leather , essentially like a rot or fungus attack. I have used leather…"

Dave Shore replied to Wayne's discussion B40 Bilge Pump in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"I had a similar issue with my 2008 B43. The bilge pump was wired with the radio and also needed the main breaker turned on. Crazy, rewired and all was well."

Dave Shore replied to CAN DRAC's discussion Bow thruster goes off in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Jumped on the boat the other day and my Maxspeed thruster would not work at all. The unit turns on and the light stays on, but pushing either button has no effect. I had the control board go two years ago, but the symptoms were different, thruster…"

Dave Shore replied to Dave Shore's discussion Bilge pump fuse B43 in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Thanks Mike, I know of the two below the seat, was hoping for another. After shooting wires I found that the person that owned the boat prior, wired the radio in with the bilge pump, crazy."

Mike Brown replied to Dave Shore's discussion Bilge pump fuse B43 in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"It's under the seat with the house batteries just inside the aft cabin. There are a number of fuses in that area but it should be an open type that you push into the clips on each end. There are two next to each other located to the left of the…"

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.

James Taylor replied to Chris's discussion Battery Charger in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"All great advice! Did you check the charger's "battery type" selector switch position (flood,gel,agm)? Our Dekka agm's ( 396ah house and 98ah engine) gave us over 7 1/2 years of usage before replacement. The batteries were still…"

"Yep, I too have snapped a couple of the clam shell drain covers off. I have a couple of spares, but may or may not replace this time. The slack didn't seem to be the ultimate cause. Seems that wind/tide shifts and wake surge would cause the…"
