At last!!!!! my boat is back on the water. I have made a lot of work on it sanding and varnished all wood pieces, changed all glass etc......hope to have a good season with lots of sunny days. I will look on next winter to change it for a bigger one, just around 26 to 28 footer.  I wish sunny days and a good wind to all of you. ;-)

C'est toujours beaucoup de travail un bateau! D'habitude j'aide mes copains de voile pour la préparation mais cette année je me suis blessée en mars en tombant pendant mon déménagement. Je crois que je devrai m'astreindre à être une poupoune de bateau pour cettes année. Mon bras prend beaucoup de temps à guérir, lol

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in.
