Thanks Kevin, yeah, that's just for rebedding. 110. each with new gasket from cd. gets pricey for 4.

Hi Kevin, still screwing around with the ports .... friend sealed two, one still leaking. Is it possible to buy just the gasket?? withouth the whole kit? Thinking about trying ourselves...company out here will do for 85.00 port without replacing gasket. Many have told me gasket doesn't do anything (interior) to keep water out, it's all in the proper rebedding. Thanks, Terri

Hi Kevin, My ports all fixed (what were they think'n??). Have seen the CD kit for them, will probably get it. Will attempt fix'n the leak'n one first and see how I do. then get brave and do the rest. Thank you! Do they have replacement opening ports for head and port across from it. small ones, figure may replace those w/opening for some cross ventalation. Also bought a solar air fan..all on the "when i get brave" list.. :-)

Hey Kevin! Hope you're doing well and sailing your Baby. I'm getting splashed soon, I hope... still freak'in cold up here! Going tomorrow to finish polishing the brightwork. Someone told me months ago about replacement gasket (?) for port lights. Mine have dried and are slightly leak'in..do you know where I can get?? Looked on Cat. Direct site, no luck. Thanks! Terri

Hi Kevin, Hope you're getting some sailing in. I might be ordering a mastgate from Catalina Direct.. When I derigged boat for the first time, took it off & put in a safe place...lol....gonna give it 4 more weeks to show up. I know it didn't go out in the trash...I always get in trouble with those safe place's. Next time, duct taped to the ceiling.

Beneteau 40 2008 replacement rudder bearings

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

"Hi Michael, 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 :-) "
