Please keep in touch. I will be over your way sailing a Lagoon 42 out of Lauderdale, May June. I would like to take the oportunity to meet a few seaknots people on that side of the world to assess sail compatability tobe able to invite them to visit Australia and sail.
Thanks. The invitation for any of the USA buddies to visit here stands. I will be likely sailing with my Manta friend about that time. He has a new Lagoon 42. Keep intouch and we may have the oportunity to qualify our sail compatability at that time. We could take you out with us some time.Tom is based at Fort Lauderdale.
I'm in the same boat so to speak. I live in Gold Coast Queensland Austraila. Always looking for a sail buddie. When we go up the coast here it is often night sailing due to distance between ports. I have done some sailing out of your area in a Manta. (Bahamas) Did Panama canal in a 38 mono and about Mustique in a 52 mono. I have a seawind 1160.
I will fly to Cuba last two weeks of May and be in Florida first two weeks of June. Can swop those around. If you wanted to go some where at that time I am happy to help. I would visit prior for you to check me out. If it works you would be welcome to crew for me on a trip here.
Hey Jen, I have my boat on the hard at Glades boat storage. I was in the Mooring field in Ft. Myers Beach all last year, was a fun place but not Key West. Sorry I missed your post about finding crew, I would have loved to have done that.
Have an enjoyable trip and I look forwrad to talking with you more about nearby destinations. I'm so new to the area I have no idea where I can go. I am looking to meet-up with friends from my passage down from Boston in either the Keys or Bahamas as soon as Cayo Mio is put back together.
I had to repair her transmission and rudder this time. So while she was out I refaired and painted her bottom. So hopefully she is ready for another several 1000 miles of cruising.
Enjoy you Christmas and we meet soon almost neighbor.
I have a seeping type leak near where the shaft exits my B43 behind the engine. The leak is not coming from the volvo seal, it puddles underneath the shaft and fills this area with saltwater after about two days. I have read a few posts on other sites about water leaking in from where the shaft exits the hull. Does anyone have any info on this. Going to call Beneteau tomorrow.Thanks DaveSee More
"As Chris mentioned there's a rebuild kit available for the pump. The kit has a new pump bellows as well as a check valve. Both should resolve your back flow issue.
I agree it seems rather odd that someone wired the toilet pump to the engine…"
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
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
