Pat S/V Ciao! replied to Peter's discussion Installing arch on Beneteau Oceanis 411 in the group Beneteau Corner
"I agree with Mike that a arch can be pricely. Poles from manufacters like Scanstrut,Edison or Seaview might be a better choice.It not ideal but a hardtop dodger can also carry some solar panels,just a idea.Take care and good luck with the 411!"

Pat, I am glad you found the video enjoyable. I am looking for another, that I used to have on video tape, of the journey of the S.& S. yacht Dorade crossing the Atlantic. I got a copy from the cooky's granddaughter and will post it when i can.

Thanks Pat. Yes, we had to do that (and pay) and obtain a valid MMSI number from the FCC. Our troubles are with step number 3 (interfacing the radio with the GPS). Thanks for your response!

Yes, we did! Glenn and Brian and Bruce and the rest of the team were great helping us prepare our dream voyage and were very supportive along the way! Bruce was actually sending us technical tips via sat phone while we were in the middle of the Atlantic fixing our autopilot. If you talk to them tell them we say hi! Do you have any pics of your 343???

"Simo, see my reply to the original post. There are a lot of items in the steering system that can cause heavy steering. Ensure everything is properly adjusted and lubricated before you do any major work on the rudder bearings. Good luck Mike"

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
