Pronounced:  er lick  da

 

It has a commanding jolt with its harsh beginning and end; yet it supposedly means to slow down, you know kind of smell the roses as you go along kind of thing; something I have a hard time doing. Yet as I edge my way into the cruising world, I work at it each day. Take for instance this moment. For the past hour I have been online ordering a no longer made radio, the Icom MC 422. First I learned that I missed a seemingly good deal on a used one by…

Sweet Sixteen

In the words of Jackie Gleason, "How sweet it is."  Well, I think it was Jackie Gleason. Either way, it is pretty crazy wavering between the excitement of an unknown future and the fear of an unknown future. The minutes drag by while the days fly. With only 3 major boat tasks to do and 3 household items on the list, the common denominator of my paying attention to what is really important and not dwelling on things like dating, reality is making sleep difficult.

"Similarly, I changed out my aircon thru hull and valve a while back. Seems to be an issue. Recently, I was changing the aircon seawater pump and luckily found a valve on the distribution manifold (one pump serves two aircon units) that was fully…"

"Mike nails the freezer (and Refrigerator) item. Remove the woodencovers on the vents, and if they have never been off you will most likely find a carpet of dust/hair/lint. I drilled small screw holes and added screws to re-attach. Now it is a…"

Mike Brown replied to Cam Whitlock's discussion Freezer problem in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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…"

"Hey Mike - I agree with you that there is no physical problem with the unit running.  My problem is the drain on the battery.  As a weekend / once / twice a year cruiser, I don’t have solar to recharge my batteries (yet).  I…"

"We experienced the same thing on our B43 (now sold and gone). We were living aboard and cruising with a fairly full freezer. Like you did I changed out the thermostat without success. I wrote it off to the poorly insulated freezer compartment but…"
