Ay Jeepers Ka Deepers

Jeepers Creepers where did all this dirt and grime come from, not to mention leaves and trees and pollen, and weeds, and dirt, and boat scum? Yuk, I've spent more time cleaning this past week and I still have a long way to go. It all started when a friend agreed to help with yard work for a nominal fee. Three of us spent 8 hours raking, trimming, and carrying debri to the curb on a beautifully sunny day. I was so determined to get the yard clean I failed to take water breaks and by Monday…

Healthy Addictions,,,,,

Looking for a new lifestyle, maybe change from an extroverted socialite to an introverted recluse. It's quite an experience as I find myself spending more and more time at home taking time to trim the hedges, organize my files, and keep the floors spic 'n span. Passing up two opportunities to sail in local events that just a few months ago I would not have thought of missing made me realize what an addiction sailing can be. . .

 

As defined by my 1951 Webster's Dictionary an…

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

"As Chris mentioned there's a rebuild kit available for the pump. The kit has a new pump bellows as well as a check valve. Both should resolve your back flow issue. I agree it seems rather odd that someone wired the toilet pump to the engine…"

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
