Dinghy Davits

"Hi Mike Thanks for that. Strengthening in behind the gas locker must have been a challenge.  Is there also a leg that goes all the way down to the bottom step or is that part of a crane or something for your outboard?  Solar is something I…"

"Hi Mike I see you haven't had much uptake on this and I haven't got any words of wisdom either.  I am interested however in how you got on.  Kato is not a brand we have here and I would be keen to know how the fit went and which…"

Gavin White replied to sam's discussion freezer insulation modification in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Greetings I ended up using closed cell foam on the front and sides of the box that I could get to and then drilled 2 holes, one under the chart table and one behind the oven in order to pump foam into the void.  This seems to have made things…"

Gavin White replied to foster's discussion poor quality brass seacocks in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Hi  I am starting to think it may be related to Electrolytic activity. My boat came with only one anode on the shaft to protect the prop.  An inspection of that reveals that it is working.   I would be interested to know what others…"

"Hi Sam I had a rigger look over my rig at the end of last season (year 3) and one thing he picked up was that, in his opinion the spreaders weren't sufficiently prevented from moving up and down as rig tension changed.  He also wasn't…"

"HI We put an Auto Stream on our 43 and I am happy with it.  Looking quickly at the review, which is great by the way, it comes out pretty well.  Anyone who I have talked to with a Gori, raves about the overdrive function.  The lower…"

Gavin White replied to Alan's discussion Help finding a small leak in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Greetings I found a gap in the joint sealant between the deck and the hull on my boat in the aft quarter, so it might be worth having a close inspection of this detail on your boat. Regards Gavin"

Beneteau Regatta NZ

We have just had the annual Beneteau Regatta here in NZ. So I thought I would give a heads up.The race format was Mark Foy and about 15 boats lined up.  We gave 10 minute to 3, 40's and had 5 minutes on three 473's.  Some older cruiser 443's were off with us  The Firsts were basically handicapped out of it 30 minutes behind us. Unfortunately there were no 46's or other 43's to square off against.The course was approximately 15nm comprising a run, a long reach, a short beat then a tight lead and…See More

"I use a bridle set up for a snubber which works well. We do swing at anchor and either side of the bridle takes the load. Lots of options and opinions out there. Pick the one you feel comfortable with and use it every time you anchor. BTW once…"
