Diesel tank

Hello,The diesel tank on a 3 cabin B43 is made by rotomold to the shape of the hull under the port bunk bed.We all know the unreliability of the VDO OEM fuel gauge. I have found an NMEA 2000 compatible sender made by Offshore UK. They can calibrate the sender to have a reading in volume of diesel left.For that I need the drawing of the tank that doesn't have a simple shape but a complex "pie shape".The tank was made in France by BONAR PLASTICS that has been sold to an other company SNYDER…See More

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

"I use TeaQua on my rails and companionway doors. I've only had to apply it once to the doors since the original oil faded. I do my rails in the spring. Just a quick sand and rub it on."

Maintainig teak companionway doors

The finish/stain on the companionway doors on my 2012 B40 are fading and need something. I would like top keep the original satin finish. Benetau told me the stain they use is proprietary, and not available to purchase. I am not a fan of Cetol or other shiny finishes. Any suggestions?

Inspiration

A caveat of being questioned or receiving an inquiry in Sea Knots is the resulting inspiration. This morning Lola asked if I am sailing alone. A few days ago a girl from my home base, sent an intriguing message via email. Such communication is received with approbation. Venturing far from family and friends has been a daunting experience.
