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.

"There's no circling on the 40/43 winches. It's simply a screw off collar. WD40 and a heavier hammer should get the job done."

"Mike is correct. The is a vertical pin in the middle of the winch handle hole that pushed down and disengages the electric motor on the winch. Also, on my Oceanis 45, there is a circlip that holds the top on. I don't remember if the 40 electric…"

"Thanks Mike. I did use a light hammer but I do have heavier ones at work and I did use WD40. As for a disengagement pin, I didn't see one when I looked down in the top of the winch. I did see a small circular pattern in the bottom that I…"

"Thanks Mike, however I have tightened both attachments and if you grab the track in the middle you can move it side to side making the noise. I took it apart, slid the track forward to add tape to both side of the boom, than careful slid the track…"

Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch

Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go. I then tried a steel drift and the cap never moved in the slightest. It is as if it was secured with permanent Lock Tite.Now when I say its…See More

"I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution"
