"Penny, the factory installation places the thruster behind the water tank. It consumes part of the locker under the bed. If you can have the most powerful unit installed as when the winds are above 15kts it is not very effective. I believe the one…"

bow thruster

We r loooking at fitting a bow thruster to our oc 40. The forward water tank means it has to be behind that and about 2m from the bow. We r told that even with  85k rather than 60k it would still not be very effective! And suggestion is to put in a smaller tank so it can be sited forward of it. Any one any experience, our prob is on the med coast of spain 20k crosswinds just when you are parking. PennySee More

John Whitehead replied to Penny Blackmore's discussion auto pilot support on oc 40 in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"How old is your B40?  Reason for my question is that Beneteau made a post-production modification in about 2008 when the steering gear was beefed-up.  If your yacht was built before about mid-2008, it would be worth checking that the…"

Just saw your comment on the cockpit speakers. I changed the ones on our 43 the first year we had the boat, 2008. I installed Polk 4 1/2" speakers that fit in the existing holes. They're water resistant and have better sound than the stock models. You can find them in most electronics stores or on line at sites like Crutchfield. The only change I had to make was the stab on connectors on the wire ends as they were different sizes.

Good luck

Mike

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena000@yahoo.co.th ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank
