Wow! 27hp Yanmars! Did your boat come with those or were they replaced? I have Perkins 18hp engines. What is your cruising speed? How much fuel per hour? Do you have folding props?

Hi fellow L37 owners! I just realized that you were on here after looking at you website! Did you figure out you engine situations yet? I have a lot of info on L37s and the Perkins M20s... that is if you haven't replaced them yet....
Hey there - thanks for the friends invite - have accepted! I've been absent from here for awhile, but will be back more often. Am presently selling our Catalina 25 and getting a bigger one (tho' I wish I could keep the 25 as well - it's such a fun boat to sail).

We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier. The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
"I looked at the Beneteau USA site under electrical and did not see the transfer switch on your boat in their images of factory installed equipment ( see below) so I'm assuming the transfer switch was installed as a part of the inverter…"
Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve.
