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

"Harry, thanks for sharing the info on your two problems and fixes. Fortunately I haven't seen the mainsail fuller issue. I have seen the shower sump problem though. On my boat pulling and reinserting the red/hot lead at the box under the sink…"
"Robert, thanks for the update, glad all is well. As for lapping the gear box cones in such a short period of time I still have my doubts about it. Just remember not to fix something that isn't broke.

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
