Since you like to ride, check out Tobermory as a stop. (Our personal favorite) It has been awhile but Harmony Acres used to come to the boat basin (marina) in the Tub and pick up folks that wanted to horseback ride and eat at their restaurant, which we did several times. The dock master, a German named Klaus, would call for us to arrange a time to be picked up. Harmony Acres has a camp ground there, so we were able to get cleaned up afterwords. Then on to a gourmet dinner prepared by the students from the local culinary school. We were introduced to the Pelee Island Winery Gewurztraminer (made in Ontario Canada) there at Harmony Acres. It went famously with the fish they served to us. It is a fabulous wine, our favorite Gewurztraminer.
Love your photos.. !!!!!!!
We had horse and rode them over part of Ontario, exploring, camping with them.
Now that part of our lives is history but the sailing will continue.
Love your boat.. You're living our dream.

Surprise, surprise there was quite a bit of coral growth in the gearing, not…"
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
"I looked at the Beneteau USA site under electrical and did not see the transfer switch on your boat in their images of factory installed equipment ( see below) so I'm assuming the transfer switch was installed as a part of the inverter…"
Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve. When switching on the inverter I have the following 2 potential issues:1) Voltage display is low, shows between 102-106 volts2) Humming noise coming from some sort of auto switch which is encased in a white plastic box behind the cabinet where the radios are mountedI only have the problem when the inverter is on, no issue with shore…See More
