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.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More

B43 Inverter Buzzing/humming noise

Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve. When switching on the inverter I have the following 2 potential issues:1) Voltage display is low, shows between 102-106 volts2) Humming noise coming from some sort of auto switch which is encased in a white plastic box behind the cabinet where the radios are mountedI only have the problem when the inverter is on, no issue with shore…See More
