"Our marina in Clear Lake TX had very little water exchange. Flushing the head with saltwater would almost drive you out of the boat. Friends with other B40s used their shower wand to provide fresh water for the flush. We had looked…"
Frank your comment didn't show up in the discussions on the 40/43 site. It's simply a comment on your page. Not sure if others will see it. For what it's worth I don't have the problem on our boat. There are two pieces of hardware holding the track in place, one on either end of the track. Look under the end caps for them. You should be able to tighten them with a hex key. There's a small flat square that fits inside the boom that the bolt screws into. I'd also check the car that rides on the track as they can lose the bearings allowing the car to become loose fitting on the track. Although if you're missed enough bearings it usually results in the car binding.
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:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.

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
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
Hope someone can help me.I have a 2009 BEN OC 43 with a Yanmar 4JH4AE diesel. I am replacing the tachometer and need to configure the new unit. Does anyone know the pulse count from the alternator?See More
