Hi Wes,

Hello I am new here...:-)

With my skipper Dan I work on our little ship ORKUN - SWELL I You can get an impression of the tendency of our ship here:
Moments on the ORKUN - SWELL I

On a Gulet can stay overnight up to 12 persons. In roomy 6 double cabs with own bath & toilet you can recover yourself from the stress. If you are ever at the Cote d'Azur and want to join us, send us a message.

A Gulet is a sailsboat usually made from wood. Gulets were built since the Antique in Karien (particularly in Bodrum and Marmaris) and were over thousands of years the type of ships for the trader from the Amphora, who carried olives, wine and many other precious goods along the Turkish coasts. The wooden building ships are admired for the warmth and great atmosphere compared with the common plastic boats.

As I also do a videoblog about good food and wine, you are welcome to join my group Charlottenburg Cuisine at GREAT COOKS.

We made a episode on our ship. As we think good food and wine is part of great sailing expiriences:

The appetizer is tagliatelle putanesca. As a main course we serve cod filets provencale style and for dessert we serve baked pears in a rosé-honey sauce. Enjoy!

"There's no circling on the 40/43 winches. It's simply a screw off collar. WD40 and a heavier hammer should get the job done."

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Mike is correct. The is a vertical pin in the middle of the winch handle hole that pushed down and disengages the electric motor on the winch. Also, on my Oceanis 45, there is a circlip that holds the top on. I don't remember if the 40 electric…"

"Thanks Mike. I did use a light hammer but I do have heavier ones at work and I did use WD40. As for a disengagement pin, I didn't see one when I looked down in the top of the winch. I did see a small circular pattern in the bottom that I…"

"Thanks Mike, however I have tightened both attachments and if you grab the track in the middle you can move it side to side making the noise. I took it apart, slid the track forward to add tape to both side of the boom, than careful slid the track…"

"I can't imagine anything in the winch top that would bend. Other than the electric drive and a disengagement pin that activates when the winch handle is inserted the winch is the same as the others. It sounds like the collar is jammed due to…"

Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch

Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go. I then tried a steel drift and the cap never moved in the slightest. It is as if it was secured with permanent Lock Tite.Now when I say its…See More

"I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution"
