"Thank's I saw this fix. Since the fuel gauge is not reliable and even the location and flat shape of the diesel tank is not very easy to measure with an appropriate NMEA2000 gauge we installed. I rely on engine (and generator) hours…"

"Denis, yes I had to make an adjustment for the tachometer to read the correct RPMs. The only problem I have is the tachometer will sometimes act erratically. I suspect I need to re-crimp the connection but haven't done so yet. One tip for you…"

No arch for October Moon. We don't always take the dinghy with us and when we do we tow it.

Kitchen cabinet pegs loose!

We have a beneteau 40 2009, in the kitchen cupboard there are pegs in one cupboard to organize dishes and plates etc.Strangely the pegs are very loose, don't fit the holes well so don't really stay put to keep the dishes in place.Can other owners say if their pegs are also very loose? Are they meant to be glued/sikaflexed in place?What other solutions have been tried to get them to stay put?…See More

I have noticed that my bowthruster works ok on idle but then as I increase the revs the indicator lamp in the button of the control unit starts flicking and then it switches off. I have fitted brand new batteries and had a couple of attempts by technicians to fix this at quite an expense without positive results. I am…See More
