Don't take the keel bolt loose until you have given it some thought. You're going to need a strong back. As I recall, the keel weighs 500 pounds. One of these years I plan to tak her to a boat shop where they can put her in a sling and replace the keel cable and repaint the bottom.

The Venture is a fun boat to sail, not a racer, but just the thing for day sails. Just curious about the swing keel. Have you ever tought of how you would handle a cable break? Our slip is in very shallow water, and I have to crank the keel 2/3 up to get in. Have you heard of a method for getting the keel up if the cable breaks?

Also, it would be handy to have a keel position indicator instead of counting turns of the crank. Has anyone invented an indicator yet or should I get to work on it?

DOLPHN 40 AMP BATTERY CHARGER

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
