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!

"Hi Mike, thanks for the input!
Are there any rough guidelines for when the bearings need replacing? What is too much play? it seems a hard question to answer!
we've been sailing full time for the last 3 years and just recently I noticed slight…"
"I'm a bit surprised you need to replace the bearings on an 2008. I've not heard of any issues other than early model 43s required a brace be installed at the quadrant. Actually the issue was discovered by Franc who happens to own and run…"
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
