Thanks to everybody...

I have send the address and the photos to Malcom, also I have sent to him the original brochure of the Jeanneau Brio (My old boat).

I know the Arcadia... in my harbour there is one.. I really like it, for me the Jeanneaus of this years were very well built...

The new ones for sure are vey nice (I Have a frined that owns a Jeanneau SO 37 and is going to change to a 43 DS), they are fantastic with the interiors and the space, but the construction is not so good (All the brands reduce costs).

For me the Attalia was the best choice because of the size (For sure I will love to have a bigger boat, but the harbour it will get very expensive and also because of the maintenance, sails, ...), so 32 feet is the perfect size... and also because of the price.

It is an old boat, with the interior design and space of the moderns, very robust and a lot cheaper than the new ones...

In Spain, comparing to the cost of living, sailing is still expensive and see as rich people, so everything related with boats is very expensive...

Anyway I share the property of the boat with a friend, in Spain is really uncommon, but I have done it always and it is fantistic, I really do not get to use so much, so sharing costs is the key...

hi again

The last time I posted was before my first sail in the attalia, and since then I have really come to love this boat. As of last summer, I had never sailed in a keel boat, but I put in about 250 miles worth of day sails in late Summer and Fall. It has been an amazing experience, and I am totally hooked on sailing.

Its great to see this thread still going and to see more resources like Jacobo's website. I recently built a website (the link is in my signature) to post pictures and log information (including gps tracks- check out the 'trips' page) for myself and crew. As my dad and I start doing some projects, I'll start posting pictures of that as well. I'm going to add links to Jacobo's site and the jeanneau-owners site-- if anyone knows of other Attalia related sites I should add, let me know.

Dave/Jacobo,

Always great to see converts. Waymar has been laid up for almost three years (since I did not bring her to Guyana). I'm going to have alot of work on her this coming fall, winter and spring. Probably more than I bargained for.

looking forward to some good exchanges. Cheers for now.

Hi all, as an Arcadia owner I think we are an even more lonely bunch than the Atttalia group. Waymar, we must have passed each other as up to last year I sailed out of Kingston as well. I was just on the site to see if I could find any advice on dealing with problems of cracks in the rudder blade surface when I saw your old thread. Re the head tank issue, my Arcadia has one installed in the cockpit locker near the diesel fuel tank and it works well.Wallace.

Actually Wallace,

All of us with mid 80's Jeanneaus in NA seem to be hard to find equals. The sunshines, Attalia's and Arcadia's are hard to fine in general. Altho here in Puget Sound up to the BC area, I know of 5 arcadia's, located 4, one Attalia, and 3 sunshines 36/38's from that time period. Reality is, the Arcadia's at lest for me have been easier to find vs Attalia's. Then again, owning an Aracadia, may make it such that I locate and find info. Otherwise, I beleive that there were more Attalia's produced than Arcadia's.

Welcome to over here, I believe I have seen you post on the jeanneau owners site too have you not?

Red face New Attalia owner with bilge pump question

Good day everyone,

I have been reading this post since we acquire our first boat last August. She is an 1986 Attalia and she is going in the water next week. We will be sailing on lake Ontario and I have to say that it will be a long week !

We were not allowed to have her back in the water last summer, survey said rudder is full of water and need to be fixed, we also had to have the propane upgraded to meet ABYC code, these were the two insurance requirements for her to go back in... therefore could not get everything fixed before the end of the season last year.

Anyhow, I have a question for the group, the bilge pump is in the head, in my boat there are actually two pumps side by side, is this the standard configuration ? One is the bilge pump, what is the other one for ?

Thanks

Stephane...good luck with your launch!
Sometimes two bilge pumps are mounted side by side of redundancy (extra safety) in case one fails. Also sometimes the FLOAT switches which turn them on are mounted at different levels in the bilge...one low and one high for extra help in a real flood. You might look for the float switches to see if that is the case.
The thing that is puzzling to me is that they are in your head. They should be in the bottom of your bilge unless they are simply shower sump pumps.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Stephane,

If you go here Pagina nueva 1

That is a website setup by jlv7777 with the "WHOLE" owners manual listed online, altho not the best copies, copies none the less. If you do not have an original manual, that might be worth a look to see if those two pumps are for the shower. Otherwise, the bilge pump should be in an area just behind the table in the lazerette. You may also have a bilge pump in a shallow compartment behind the trans to collect and remove any water from here the shaft comes in and out of the hull. This is a common place for a bilge pump from Jeanneau at the time too.

On my Attalia, the bilge pump in the head is a manual Whale pump. It is there, I think, to comply with Canadian regulations that require a manual pump on board.
