Hello,Hope everyone in the northern hemisphere is enjoying the summer.We just changed the halyards for low stretch dyneema spliced ones of our mainsail with slab reefing.After about 24 hours of dead downwind sailing with main on preventer and genoa on a whisker pole we found significant chafe on the sides of the mast top near the sheave.Lucky to have seen it before rupture.Besides cuting off the chafed end and doing a knot has anyone have a more durable solution :Protection on the halyard, low…See More
"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…"
I retighted all the stanchions and cleats that were accessible. By luck the remaining ones seem well tighten.
I had a hard time with the turnbuckles since they were commisioned dry.
I say the Oceanis gets even better with maturation with…"

We will be connecting the eltrical parts tomorrow.

Thank you for your advice and…"

The new ELECTROMAAX Voyager 160A is advertised as a small case high output continuous model thanks to square wires and hairpin bending. It should fit where the OEM Hitachi 80A was.
We are strugling with the mechanical installation for…"
"Denis I can see your problem with the excessive gap in the belt. I also see you have the new style upper mount and adjuster. I have the old style mount and adjuster and had the opposite problem. My belt was too small and I couldn't fit it over…"
It depends. What model O'Day are we speaking about? Who put the rails on in the first place? Are there white caps about 3/4 of an inch on the cabin overhead under where the handrails are? If yes, the rails are…"
I'm going to attempt to reseal my handrails on our 84' Oday 30. I noticed there are screw holes (teak plugs) both on the topside and down in the salon. Does anyone know if both screws need to be removed to reseal or just the topside screw?See More
Just before my starting battery (six years old) went dead when I was at anchor (that was another story) I was having erratic readings or better saying - the lcd was very difficult to read even during the night. When the new battery was mounted,…"
I only saw this thread today! I had the same problem last year with my Oceanis 40 2010. In my case it was the reverse that would not engage all the times. I also was suggested to remove and check the gearbox. But it turned out that it was…"
