Hi Terri,

Great to hear back from you. It's never too cold to sail (so the saying goes)! Last week was a bit cool and knowing it will eventually warm up I am waiting until Thursday to sail again. Aren't you scheduled for another island cruise sometime soon? I am jelous! If ever in Florida, let me know and we'll go sailing.

Cheers,

Manolo

"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…"
