I guess the yawl sails the same as a ketch. Sail it quite a bit with just mizzen and genny. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to to put up the main. You know how the wind pipes up here in the afternoon.

Mike Brown replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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…"

"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"
