Hi All-

There are so many options out there. I was wondering what options or upgrades you added to your Beneteau that you are happy with and if there are any that you thought were a good idea at the time but could really live without.

Is here no more protection?

Is the rope sham filing on the roof ?

Did any one tried to put a second Genua on the beneteau 40 ?

I find that this part is not well protected from weaves ? What is your experience ?
The furling drum is sealed but I always wash it with soap and water when I bath the boat. Never any problems if you keep it clean.

Do you use this lamp ?
Is it still not broken ?
Where do you put it when you are sailing ?
We love this lamp! We keep it in a bucket in the lazarette so it doesn't get damaged by other objects.
I drilled a hole in the cabinet behind the navigators seat and then put a nautical looking lashing on the lamp so that it is held up high enough to open and close the lid. It sits there nicely and is not in the way. All it really needs is a nice stainless or plastic ring to make the hole look nice. The lamp is great however I lowered the wattage on the bulb. Gavin NZ

Isn'this switch dangerous ?
isn' it broken until now ?
The switch is not easy to use but I do not think it's dangerous.

Is your *porno* mirror still in your boat ?
We want to remove as soon we get our boat :-)
"Porno Mirror"? that is very funny. We still have ours but may take it down.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
