Hi h, thanks for the reply.

Not on the site for quite awhile.  I see others in the old group are not on much either.

I gotta get the boat out soon.  I have been teaching art a lot, and busy on  Facebook.  I think everyone went to Facebook.

So are you at the new floating docks?

Hi H,

Thanks for your message last night I wasn't awake that late.  I bought a boat around Thanksgiving time and am learning to sail on that boat.  I took a few lessons from my friend, but I have crew that are also teaching me on my own boat.  I just have to get my heat exchanger back on after a cleaning so I can go sailing again.

Hey h, haven't spoken to you for awhile...what repairs have you done>/\?  I finally got the stuffing box changed out to a dripless, and had the bottom painted.  Hope to take her out as weather cools a bit.  Really hot weather here in USA.

"Cam, I used a wide, flat blade screw driver to pry it off. I took my time and made sure I wasn't forcing it and causing any dents or scratches. It took a little while to do but when done I had good access to the coils. One of the grills would…"

"Mike - great information!  I was hoping that there is a way to remove the wood grills. What type of tool did you find worked that didn’t damage the wood?  "

Mike Brown replied to Cam Whitlock's discussion Freezer problem in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"
