Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi Chris,
I'm not sure all holding tanks are in the same spot but my aluminum tank is in the cockpit locker closest to the head. There is a fiberglass cover that can be unscrewed and you have direct access to the tank and all the hoses.

Regarding the lights, if they dim or go off it, sounds like a problem of continuous current/voltage. Could be weak battery (I doubt its the fuse panel). Connect a voltmeter and monitor the voltage. If you have a fridge it could happen when the fridge cycles on and the voltage/current temporarily dips.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hello again. Quick question on electrical issue with my new boat. Most of the interior lights have been upgraded to LED and occasionally they dim or go off and I cycle then house battery a few times and hey come back on. I've traced all of the wires and cleaned all contacts to no avail. I'm guessing it's an issue with the fuse panel. Can anyone comment on how they resolved this?

New to me Attalia being delivered next week. First order of business is replacing some of the sanitation lines. Can someone tell me how/where I access the waste holding tank? Thanks!

Hi Waymar,

We changed to a new furling system for the genoa. Nowadays we have a Facnor Flatdeck which is very good.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi there everyone,

Congratulations Waymar to your success. I'm still working on mine...

As I told you about before our new mainsail was delayed, but we got it before the vacation. We're very satisfied with the new sails and rigg, although I'm still learning how to sail the boat as good as possible. I suppose (hope) that is a lifelong challenge.

I'm planning to buy a plotter this winter. We've been using an iPad with a navigational program called Seapilot. The program is good but it's difficult to see the charts in sunlight. I'm thinking about a plotter from B&G och Garmin. Do any of you have any ideas on what is good or not?

Dear Waymar
OK, thank you. Pretty much basics, but also showing that a lot of things have to be right to be in the front.
Keep up

Hi Jens!

It's fun to pick up the mooring after the race and watch the other boats cross the finish line (instead of the other way around). I would say there are several reasons: New Genoa, a clean bottom, more experienced crew (our tacks are much faster and crisper and we really hike) and a tactician who joined our crew who has racing experience (and he does not mind taking a proactive approach to the start line so now we are close to first off the start (always in the thick of things) and finally, better sail trim.

We are having fun...

Thanks for the article! I am still doing my research for the right boat. I do like the Jeanneau's design, but got to have the height though.
