"We fitted an AIS have a look here http://www.yachtconosur.com/ais-install.html Different AIS unit but not a bad job to do really. Hardest thing is getting the wiring back to the chart plotter and the AIS GPS areal was a bit tight at 10M Great bit of…"

"It was already intalled when I bought the boat (B40 2008). Now I'm looking to add AIS as a complement to the radar."

"Mine is mounted at half mast. No issue so far, except that the genoa (140%) sometimes get stuck between the radome and the mast when tacking. I will add a guard around it this year. I hope this will take care of the issue. Good luck! Don."

"Thanks Mike, after checking the diesel smell from the filler, it's definitely not diesel, so probably exhaust fumes. I do hear a fan, but not sure if I hear both fans. Will check and post back. Thanks again!"

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
