Amazing that this was not only over a year ago, but was added exactly one year (1 hr & 8 minutes) before Julia's birthday :-)

Thanks for sharing your ocean passage in this great video. Your auto pilot experience reminds me that I will need to do a complete check of our auto pilot before we try any kind of an ocean crossing. A crew of three is clearly a must if hand steering is needed. Congratulations on a successful passage. Smooth seas and fair winds to you on your journeys.

You did it, and look so happy.

I was today in cala de sa tuna near cap Begu (picture one)r. Europe is waiting for you.

By the way Beneteau reinforced the rudder and autopilot before I left for this little single handed cruise.

I also had the autopilot oil leak a year ago. There is a default in th O ring of the hydraulic. L&S changed it free by complete exchange. I can get you the contact in France if this helps you.

I hope to see you this summer in the Med.

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. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
