Hi William. Hope you're adjusting well to being back on terra firma.

Agree with you on the cruising being shared. Currently reading the Pardey's, Serrifins Oriental Adventure. Becalmed for days as they did this on a 24' boat with no engine. Can't play checkers by yerself.. lol

"Thanks for all your comments my friends at Seaknots. The halyard has been rerun without passing through the small stainless steel eye, as seen easily in the pic provided by Chris on 17th August. All furling now takes place without any undue effort,…"

Mike Brown replied to Jochen Vetterlein's discussion O43: Good tracking on starboard side - poor on port side in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
