is true about what B.O.A.T. means...but with a 25' it's only a 500. each time :-)

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.

"The boat has two bilge pumps, one electric and one manual. On my 40, I replaced the original pump with a Rule 2000 and a check valve. The original pump would always lose its prime. The engine bilge does not drain into the main bilge in case of an…"

Single bilge pump and standing water in engine compartment

I'm brand new to this group and almost a new owner of a 2008 Beneteau 43.  I have spent time reading nearly every discussion and post in this group in preparation for making the offer and understanding the boat.  It is clear that this group is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help.  I hope I don't overstay my welcome with questions...Here is my first one and it came up during the pre-purchase survey.  The boat had antifreeze (winterization/pink) in the bilge beneath the engine and then it…See More
