Mike Brown has not received any gifts yet
Hi Mike, Thanks for your keen insight. I managed to find the fuse (it had blown). By the way, I used to have a 40 before I got married, then I got a 46 (Beneteau's last one they built). Alot of the systems are similar to 40/43 and the group has alot of experience, like yourself, so the 40/43 group is still very relevant for me.
Are you heading to the Bahamas? I am in Green Turtle getting ready to launch and sailing to Riviera Beach to install solar and new batteries, then back to the Bahamas. Hope to catch up to you this year.
I am just changing my shaft seal before launch and thought I would change the cutlass bearing at the same time, it is pretty eaten a way but still not too much play. I don't have an original Beneteau which is all rubber but I do have an Aqualube (same dimensions) but it is brass sleeve with rubber. What do you think, it takes so long to get the part here from Beneteau.
Where are you these days/ I see not many using Seaknots much.
I think all are now on facebook
Have a great new years.
Thanks for the feedback, what a great group to be part of! Love the activity of this group.
I have always wondered what the Aqua Sigma box was, but assumed it may be some sort of high water alarm - now I know it is a light switch! Hopefully I can find the FOB or get it replaced (or replace with a simple switch).
The boat is fairly well equipped for the cruising we do in Puget Sound and the BC coast, only major additions I have planned before summer are adding Solar Panels sown into the bimini (planning on 4 flexible Renogy 100W panels & Xantrex 40 charge controller) and a Flexofold prop.
Mike:Thanks. I am embarrassed to say that I thought the references to two "halves" meant that the forward half was glued, or otherwise attached, to the aft half; hence my comment about vulnerability.
