Rigging ropes for Oceanis 40

Hello,I have already replaced some sheets of my sailboat (2010). At this moment I need to replace the rope that supports the boom. It is a relatively thin line with a 8 mm diameter. I would like to know which type of rope I should use in this case. Also, I would appreciate if anyone knows the needed length. I pretend to place the new rope using the old one as a guide.Kind Regards. Luiswww.vela-navega.comSee More

Seeping leak near prop shaft

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
