Black water in the head

Posted on July 6, 2017 at 4:13pm 2 Comments

Hey Folks

Anyone ever have any problems with black water returning to the head?

Im thinking there must be a damaged check valve some where in line.

getting ready for winter

Sorry about that I thought you were aking how we climbed on board our 43. As for questions feel free to ask about anything. I'll do my best to help out.

Michael, we have her tied up stern to and step on and off via the swim platform. We'll be moving her to a permanent marina in 2 weeks and will do the same thing there. Note that both have floating docks. I expect that we'll have to board thru the side gates when tied up to fixed piers. I'm 5'9" and it's a stretch for me to get on board without a step. My wife is 5' and definately needs a boost to get on board. We bought a collapsable stool that fits in behind the narrow panel in the galley next to the engine compartment. Not sure the panel exists on the 40.

Michael, hello and welcome to the Beneteau group. There's also a Beneteau 40/43 group you may want to join as well.

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
