john simpson replied to john simpson's discussion Keel epoxy coating flaking off in the group Cascade Owners Unite
"Do I understand that yours has been flaking off, over a period of some years?  Mine's never had a problem until now. I suspect that being stored on the hard, with temperatures in the teens may have something to do with it but I'm…"

Tim Hryciw replied to john simpson's discussion Keel epoxy coating flaking off in the group Cascade Owners Unite
"My keel was sand blasted 15 years ago and epoxy coated. Last spring when it was hauled I noticed the last of the epoxy had come off. Im not sure what to do now. Swantown won't allow sand blasting and a needle gun would take along…"

Keel epoxy coating flaking off

Five years ago, I had the bottom and keel ground off, the bottom checked for blisters (there were none) and both the keel and bottom epoxy coated. It was sand blasted and ospho prepared.Two years ago, I hauled and painted the bottom, everything looked good then. This past year I had the boat hauled and stored in SE Alaska. Just this past week, the person who is looking after it noticed that big pieces of the epoxy was flaking off the keel. No, I didn't run aground, it's much too far above the…See More

Robert & Sandy commented on CAN DRAC's group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"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…"

Mike Brown replied to Jochen Vetterlein's discussion O43: Good tracking on starboard side - poor on port side in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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…"
