The Seahorse is a solid chromed piece that is glued on. You should be able to order one through either a local Beneteau dealer or directly from the factory. They have a parts department you can call. The number is on their website.
The name such as Beneteau 40 and all the stripes are vinyl that are stick on. If you want to remove the Beneteau 40 emblem I would think you can heat it with a hair dryer and it should peel off using a plastic scraper. Just don't get the gel coat too hot or you can damage it.
Alain, are you still scheduled to take delivery in June?
Yes. As it seems, the boat will leave the factory at the 18th of June. If this is right, the boat will be in Luxembourg on the 19th so that i can pay the taxes here ( 15% instead of 21% ). After this, the boat will go to Slovenia ( Koper ). We hope to get it at least on the 15th of July :-)
I just wrote an E-mail to Beneteau asking them if they can deliver the boat without the sticker Beneteau 40. I don`t want people to know how long it in real is :-) 11m82 or 12m15

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"
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
