I rented a WR at Sail Honeymoon a couple of years ago and even in light air, 6kts or so, of wind it was a hoot to sail. They are having a Demo Day at SH on the Dunedin Causeway in Dunedin Fl the 12th of September. New owners etc., just sign up for a…
We now have a Hunter 23.5 and a pair of Hobie Adventure Islands besides miscellaneous kayaks. I do miss my Sea Pearl Tri.
We sold the Sea Pearl and bought a 93 Hunter 23.5 in September. It was a little odd going back to a monohull, but we seem to be getting there. Lots of sailing events planned, check my website at www.flwwp.com
I teach at ZHS so I've got the summer off and Hudson isn't too far away. I'm packing up right now for 5 days in the Keys on my buddy Dave's Mac 26X - he posts on this board too. I'm looking forward to trying the X out, it's on my shortlist for next boat. I like my Tri but something bigger - not as big as yours, our club, WCTSS, is centered on trailer sailing - for those 1 - 2 week opportunities. My Tri is flat out fun but it is like tent camping: after the 3rd day you are ready to go home. Keep an eye on our club board and join us on one of our Caladesi or Ft Desoto Cruises, we always have a good time.

"I'm a bit surprised you need to replace the bearings on an 2008. I've not heard of any issues other than early model 43s required a brace be installed at the quadrant. Actually the issue was discovered by Franc who happens to own and run…"
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
at the moment I prefer a Folding Prop due to better performance while sailing and also when "motoring".
My gearbox has a ratio in forwarding of 2.36.
don't worry... I'm not American....I'm Italian :-)
I have a Kiwi feathering prop on my Beneteau 43, 4JH5E engine. It looks small and blades are a funny shape but it works perfectly. They set the pitch depending on size of engine, will need to know gearbox ratios, and it has full pitch in reverse…"
