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.

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions. If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker. We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier. The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.
Many thanks, John

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(email@example.com) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
I have a gopro and just started using it at the end of last season. Its a great cam to use for sailing and other adventure sports. what makes it great is all the mountings you can buy or make for it. Last september we attached it to the end of a long stick and filmed the bow cutting through the water at 8knots. you can mount it to anything. Ill be using it this summer and will post some videos.
John, l received an email about a GoPro versus water proof cameras but it looks like the 40/43 site still wont share comments properly so here goes.
I have a GoPro3 that I'm still getting used to. My daughter who was just here for a week has a Panasonic waterproof camera/video. After comparing results of snorkeling videos we think the GoPro produces slightly better videos. There are some differences in the operation between the two. The Panasonic has a screen to view what you're capturing while the GoPro3 does not. It's pretty much aim it and shoot. The more I use it the better the results. With either camera you need to be as still as possible during video or the image will jump around quite a bit. I've only taken a couple of videos while sailing and find that setting it on Normal View works well. Depending on the scene you may get a fisheye look, especially if using as a still camera. Not all bad depending on the scene. The iPhone and iPad have GoPro Apps that allow you to monitor what you're shooting. The App also allows you to download the videos to your phone or tablet. Battery power on the GoPro seems adequate. We snorkeled for better than an hour and I had plenty of power remaining when done. The GoPro also has a long list of mounts available where a normal point and shoot camera does not. I have a short, straight handle that I use and am happy with it.
Can't think of room much more about it but feel free to ask any questions. We're in HopeTown on a mooring for the next week or so. Let me know if you plan on coming over.
