Mike, I read your email re the bilge pump. No strainer in mine. However, when delivered, they had put the pump top on backwards, so in fact the pump was pumping against the check valve. Looked up the pump online and figured out you could just re-position the top / head of the pump and all was fine.
Perhaps this is the case on yours also.

I should have more information soon.

Thank you for information. Beautiful boat, best of luck with it.

Hatfield, I live in Chalfont so we're neighbors! I sail 17foot Hunter on Nockamixon, but looking (and saving) to enjoy the crusing life.

Best wishes, and will talk to you later.

I've spoken with Jabsco directly and the feign no knowledge of a real problem, However, they are providing a one way check valve to install in the line after the joker to help. I have had the joker valves change twice on the aft head and once on the fwd already. I too have added a companionway drop enclosure and also a flexible screen for when we are at anchor and the buzzers swarm.

I've added a whisker pole, a 400 watt pure sine wave inverter(to power the TV when away from shore power, an LCD TV, LED tricolor/anchorlight, Rocna anchor, split bimini/dodger (similar to yours),radar,laptop docking station at nav table wired to E120and able to display on tv also. A/P, tridata, wind, and repeater display at wheel stations (looks same as yours from your excellent pics),bow thruster, two quiet flush electric heads, Lifeline AGM batteries. Sewed up a lee cloth for stbd settee, added 4 hella fans and a food hammock in galley. Added a computer fan to the battery case area to keep temp lower in summer.
Pix 15 and seventeen aren't of your boat are they? The cowl vent on 15 and the hand rail and hatches on 17 look different.
I/ll try and take some pix and post soon.
I just had the mainsail re-worked to greatly improve furling operation. also, have you experienced head leak-back that leaves several inches of liquid in the bowls?
Looking forward to sharing ideas / experiences.

Hey Mike, you have HULL #1! You should join the new Beneteau 40/43 group we just created and brag about that! :-)

Hi Mike,

That shot was taken from the back of my boat in her slip at Lankford Bay marina. Go up the Chester River and keep to port up Lankford Creek.
