Michael Boyle replied to foster's discussion Spinakker halyard chafe in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Hi, I have a French built 43 with a Zspar which had the eye just above the genoa halyard sheave. Spoke with Zspar UK about running the spinnaker/cruising chute halyard directly from the sheath at the top of the mast. They assured me that there was…"

foster replied to foster's discussion Spinakker halyard chafe in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Hello, The halyard broke by chafe in the ring. I was told by the rigger (Fastmast) that it is better to have the block a little over the D ring stay attachement like Sam. Franc has a block on the D ring which is very simple to install. Don't…"

Rafa replied to foster's discussion Spinakker halyard chafe in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Hi Denis, As you know I'm in the process of installing a furling Spi, so I'm very interested on this topic. Did the halyard broke because of the ring or because of the ufo (hope it is called that way :-)). Another question: could it be…"

"Hello Franc, Did you put this block directly on the  "O" ring that originally directed the spinnaker halyard. With the asymmetric spinnaker we have on a Facnor Spinex furling system we have to put a strong tension. Is there a risk…"

"I went up the mast and installed a block to put the halyard through. Problem solved! "

"Reply by foster 1 second ago Delete Hello Bruce, Thanks for the answer. I think I am going to modify this Beneteau Z spar set up to improve and diminish chafe and then put a new halyard. Simplest would be to attach a block to the ring. But this…"

Coincidence or Psychic

A few days ago I posted a blog about my new lifestyle as an unwed mate. Having no legal ties, I can't rightfully call myself a housewife. The role I have chosen brings me happiness as I relish the time enjoying the day's parade of wonders with someone who I am intimate with. The coincidence is that just a few minutes earlier I was logging on to a new website whereby they ask folks to describe their favorite anchorages. The concept intrigued me, though navigating the password situation has left…See More

Mike Brown left a comment for John Hanrahan
"John, I received an email via SeaKnots regarding your issue with your fridge and freezer power consumption. I too have a 2008 43 and have done quite a bit to maximize both units efficiency. Note that we live aboard and cruise so it's critical…"
