"We use original 44 pound plow that came with boat. Added 100ft 3/8 ht chain in 2010. This setup has proven very reliable and we have not drug since 2010. This set up has held in numerous weather systems with high winds from Martha's Vinyard Ma…"

"we have a Rocna and it fits fine and absolutlely love the anchor.  Occasionally it will tip upside down when raising it into the roller  but a boathook is easy to flip and get in up and secure."

Anchor upgrade

I would like advice on upgrading my anchor to a Mantus or Rocna anchor on my B40. Do they fit on the anchor roller? Do they perform as advertised?

"While I haven't done it yet Garhauer makes a kit that attaches to the existing genoa car track. If I recall correctly they charge app $250 for it. Look them up on the web. Mike October Moon"

adjustable jib sheet leads

I am considering a new jib for my B40.  To improve light air performance, I may go to 145% or 150% which means I will need to be able to reef more easily as the wind pipes up.  Has anyone added adjustable jib sheet tracks?See More

B40 jib upgrade

with an SA/D of barely 16, I am looking at ways to increase light air performance.  Don't think there's much room to improve the furling main, but an upgrade to the 140% jib looks like it could help.  Either upping the size to 145 or 150, going to a higher quality and construction jib, or both.We have no interest in adding a spinnaker Would like to hear from any suggestionsSee More

"Got it. Thanks.  I was hoping to find presentation similar to the Navionics iPad app, but the Platimun plus is a generation behind the iPad app, and not worth the cost, in my opinion"

Hi Gary

Sorry, obvious mistake on my part there, have a look atwww.yachtconosur.com under modifications.

The unit took less than a couple of hours to fit but you do need to take a couple of things with you in the way of tools, however the most important will be the cleaning agent.

Any questions feel free to ping me an email on crew@yachtconosur.com too
