"Sam, have you got a battery operated smoke alarm etc. When the battery is low, it alerts as just you mentioned. Vedat Midilli"

Mike Brown replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bilge pump problems in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Vedat, I had to look in the bilge the other day and decided to look for the check valve for the Rule pump. Yes we have one, just not where I expected it to be. One more thing learned about my boat. Thanks Mike"

"Mike, I agree. Check valve also reduces the flow seriously. Thank you for your comments. Vedat"

Mike Brown replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bilge pump problems in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"I haven't had any issues with siphoning while motoring or sailing. Note that the Rule has a predetermined run time regardless of the presence of water in the bilge. This ensures any water in the hose is fully evacuated. Probably why I…"

Vedat Midilli replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bilge pump problems in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Thanks Mike. If yours have a check valve, it should have been located just about 30-40 cm away from the pump. So it seems they didn't put one to yours. A problem might be the discharge thruhull which is only 15-20 cm above the water line, when…"

Mike Brown replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bilge pump problems in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"We have hull #001 and like you have two pumps, the Whale and Rule. Although I haven't inspected the entire length of hose I don't believe there's a check valve in our Rule's discharge line. I've had air locks occur with…"

Bilge pump problems

My B43 has 2 electric bilge pumps. One is a Whale diaphragm pump operated manually, other is a Rules 1100 gpm centrifugual automatic pump. Rules has a non return valve on the outlet hose. Though I replaced it, it stucks most of the time. Pump works but does not discharge. I think the problem is pump can not overcome the pressure of the water and may be a possible air lock behind the valve. Rules does not recommend a non return valve but Beneteau has put it for a safety reason. I do not know if…See More

Peter Obetz replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bow roller compatibility in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"We have a manson and love it.  To answer another question I saw here it does not always come up facing the correct way.  Sometimes you have to time its spin to get it in.  Other times I have to use a boat hook to move it right side up…"

"Hi Bruce,  Thank you for the helpfull and detailed information. I thought 45 lb would be enough for my B43. But your choise of 60 lb for B40 made me think once more. I really want to see how 60 lb Mansion sits on your roller. My anchor is a…"

Richard Morris replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bow roller compatibility in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Our B43 came with a Rocna 25 kg anchor when we purchased her in 2014.  It fits the bow roller without problem.  "

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bow roller compatibility in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Yes, I use a stainless steel universal swivel. The tip of the mansion did not touch the bow. The anchor rode very securely on the bow roller with the shank over the roller and the neck snug up against the roller. My mansion is galvanized. By the…"

Vedat Midilli replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bow roller compatibility in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Thanks Bruce. 4 more questions: Do you use a swivel? It might help (I'm not sure) anchor to come the right way. Does the tip touch the bow in some cases? Is yours a galvanized or stainless steel Manson? Are you happy with your choice, do you…"

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Vedat Midilli's discussion Bow roller compatibility in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"I put a 60 lb. mansion on my B-40 two years ago and it fit perfectly. The only problem was I needed to use a boat hook to turn the anchor around on occasion, it it came up sideways or backwards."

Has anybody put a Manson, Spade or Rocna to his B43 using the existing bow roller?

Vedat Midilli replied to Tevfik's discussion Battery overcharge with solar panels? in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Hi Tevfik, If you have AGM or lead acid batteries, I don't think overcharging for a brief period as one or two minutes will damage them. Bulk voltage level for AGM batteries are 14,40 - 14,45 V. But you must be carefull for gells…"
