Trying to change my password because I can't remember my old one.  The program won't let me change it unless I provide the old password.  Can you help?  Thanks!

Do you have air conditioning on your boat ....was 32 degrees celcius in June when I was in Alicante ....too hot friends just back from Alicante last week and said it was 37degrees! Most uncomfortable in a marina 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.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

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
