Heading back south

After a wonderful summer sailing to Maine getting as far as Acadia National Park and Sommes Sound, beautiful area, I'm back in Annapolis and find myself crewless. My sailing partner had to get home to help family and now I need help sailing to St Augustine. So if Anyone wants to crew on a beautiful 60' wooden ketch to sunny Florida, here's the opportunity. I'm easy going and experienced and have a well equipped and comfortable boat. I might try to single hand her to Portsmouth, VA, based on…

Back at the helm

Back at the helm of my Corsair F28 I feel comfortable and confident. She's a fine boat with user friendly self tailing winches, comfortable layout, and speed to get you where you want to go. Her only lacking is her ability to cross the oceans. Out beyond the sight of land, on a passage from Ft. Pierce, Florida to Cape Town. Then around South Africa up through the Madagascar Strait and onward north toward the equatorial islands that scatter throughout the Pacific. Northern Australia, then a…

Seeping leak near prop shaft

I have a seeping type leak near where the shaft exits my B43 behind the engine. The leak is not coming from the volvo seal, it puddles underneath the shaft and fills this area with saltwater after about two days. I have read a few posts on other sites about water leaking in from where the shaft exits the hull. Does anyone have any info on this. Going to call Beneteau tomorrow.Thanks DaveSee More

Questions From a new B40 Owner

Hi All - I'm the proud new owner of an '11 B40.  2 cabin model with 54hp yanmar, furling main.  Have had the boat for a few weeks now and about 120 miles of sailing (and motoring).  Love it, but I have a few questions about wiring, rig tuning, plumbing, etc. and I'm hoping to find one or some of you to help.1.  The shower sump pump will run once the water level activates the float switch, pump the sump dry (kind of a pulsing suction, not smooth like the bilge pump), then enough water will flow…See More

teleflex engine control problems

I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly.  But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse.  Once it passes that point it moves smoothly.   And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult.  I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More

Rudder post support

While surfing the net, came across a B 485 that sank with a supposed rudder issue.  Forum member NeilPride posted a picture of a bracket to support B40 and B43 rudder posts.  First I had heard of this.  Has anyone had this added to there boat?http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/f47/oceanis-485-steering-failure-160096.htmlSee More
