ok. we fixing an engine used to  be named    new blue. this engine  has had a big problem caused by  an injector pump.  we also had  lift pump and    tranny   oil  heat exhcanger    repaird and rebuilt.upon  installation  these nice newly rebuilt items we found a nother problem, probably  caused also by the    runaway situation  experienced in  june.      the  gremlins  decided to seize and freeze  engine, so we using  oil and penetrating oil.then we wait a few days and   try to  turn engine    by using a wrench   to turn the   crankshaft  bolt.  while doing the  well worn  woodruff key   sheared  and noo go .. so we   look for  a  woodruff key     so we can finish   rebuilding this   newly  renamed  engine i now ka lunk.we still intend on    exiting this marina in december under own power.   lol....thanyou…See More

there i sa bit of my engine that has been missing for over 2000 miles--and i donot remember ever seeing it in place.  isnt something one would look for--is the  plug or cap to the  hole which is used to  adjust the engine.  could be for timing adjustments--i never had to have timing adjusted so i didnt think about the problem being something so simple.

not mine, as i do my own work ....someone else does your refitting--you go to sea. it breaks..WHAT YE GONNA DO-- call someone while out there or do it yourself--or will ye make  the trip  return to where it was done and gripe about it not working??   seems to me many do the  latter bit--go back into the original port many miles backsliding from their destination to have original  do-er   redo the work. is ridiculous....why not do it yourself so it is done to your own…

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
