Do you have air conditioning on your boat ....was 32 degrees celcius in June when I was in Alicante ....too hot ...my friends just back from Alicante last week and said it was 37degrees! Most uncomfortable in a marina ..is it any better anchored off? Want to bring my boat over to the Costa Brava in 2 years time but have to figure out how to keep cool and how to keep the mosquitoes at bay! All advice welcome!
Thanks for welcome. Will have some photos soon. Trying to get steering wheel locks. Beneteau stopped fitting 6 months ago. Goiot make steering---which there is excessive play in port wheel--on the list--and refuse to reply to email. Assume they are holiday like rest of France.
It is Friday night, June 11th, & we are thinking about you! We are wondering where you are? We are sailing as a fleet into the New York Harbor to your home port tomorrow morning & we are wishing that you were going to be there! ; ) xox

It was almost 6 years that I participated in the discussions about water and fuel level indicators in this forum. Only this winter I had a go on it. In particular I made the following:
a) installed 10-180 ohms sensors in the 2 water tanks
"Sam, wow that's some serious blockage. Like James we too flush with fresh water. And like James haven't had any issues with hose blockage (that we know of) or odor. Actually we find our biggest source of odor in the heads come from the…"

Even though our B43 has never flushed seawater I maintained original equipment in place but totally disconnected (thru hull…"
"James, we use saltwater when offshore. Otherwise we use a freshwater flush. The design is such that whatever is in the line sits between the top of the holding tank and the joker valve. Over time, stuff builds up. Amazed at what a human can produce!…"
