REFITS AND BREAKAGE....AND CRUISING!!!!!

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  standards..

i do much of my own work--that which my  hand are  unable to  do , i ay someone to fix--and i will help as much as possible, so if it breaks i can redo it while underway and not have to be tied to anywhere for   warrantee work.  

i have seen all kids of excuses made  by souls who SAY they want to cruise--but these same souls are still,  more than 2 yrs later, in port. mebbe they delivered their own boats from somewhere to their home port, but they arees tillin port.  doing refits that are just as easily done while underway.

smooth sailing and  remember--cruising is another way to  say that you are doing  repairs in exotic locales. anyone thinking otherwise will find out the  meaning  the hard way, despite all the work done in port --is gonna be something to do in the exotic locales.  i saved  my repairs to be done whileunder way so i coul dget out of my former home port..i am glad i did it that way--i am out  here having  fun and enjoying  perfect weather....and dodging named storms..LOL--is called CRUISING!!!

Mike Brown replied to sail abroad's discussion Kitchen cabinet pegs loose! in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"We have them but don't use them as things don't fit well within the cabinet with them in place. If you want to keep them in place you'll need to find something to take up the space between the peg and hole. Try breaking off a small…"

Kitchen cabinet pegs loose!

We have a beneteau 40 2009, in the kitchen cupboard there are pegs in one cupboard to organize dishes and plates etc.Strangely the pegs are very loose, don't fit the holes well so don't really stay put to keep the dishes in place.Can other owners say if their pegs are also very loose? Are they meant to be glued/sikaflexed in place?What other solutions have been tried to get them to stay put?…See More
