Re: Beneteau 40 transmission problem

I just had my boat have a bit of problems when engaging in forward but not reverse. I adjusted the shift cable and all is fine now. If that's not your problem it might be your thrust bearing wearing...

Re: Fuel hose

That's what sometime had told me. I found the stuff they sold listed at over $20/ft at online marine stores but they sold it for less than $7/ft.

Re: Fuel hose

Well I ended up getting lucky. Called around to some local commercial ship supply places and one had some of the Parker coast guard approved marine hose in stock. When I showed up they gave me...

Re: Fuel hose

It nearly is. It's the old type where you use a winch handle in the slot on top to open it. That slot is barely able to grab so I figured I'd do it all at once. Thanks.

Re: Fuel hose

I'm thinking about replacing the fill fitting on deck at the same time. Any advice on the best bedding to use being that it could be exposed to diesel during fill ups?

Fuel hose

Can anyone recommend a good source for 2" B1 rated fuel hose? I'm needing to replace the fill line to my diesel tank.

Thanks.

Re: Liveaboard - Houston/Galveston

I was in the floating slips. I was on the short dock on the northwest side of the complex. Last slip on the right which doesn't have a slip across from it. It was right by the breakwater. I don't...

Re: The run aground poll

I've had a lot of fun running aground. One great one was a rather windy day with full sails up. I start thinking about tacking before getting in shallow water. Get the wheel turned over and start...

Re: Pacific Strictly Sail, piles of B's going to be there!

The Sense line or just a big Beneteau? The Sense line by Beneteau was new middle of last year or so.

Re: Charging with generator

Check out the Honda 2000 companion model. A friend bought one and it has the typical 30 amp plug built in already for not much more than the standard model. I borrowed it a couple weeks ago and in...

Re: foam backed vinyl -- ok to use? glue?

The adhesive Sailrite uses in their videos is 3M Super Trim Adhesive. The 3M Super 77 seems to be used on sails in their videos.

I did use a high solids paint from Valspar I believe but the...

I've been watching the Sailrite videos lately thinking about doing the same project. It doesn't sound like the same foam backed vinyl they use. In their projects they are using 3M Trim Adhesive which...

Re: Pacific Strictly Sail, piles of B's going to be there!

Just looking at them from the dock I had no interest. The sales guy talked me into checking them out. Told me he really liked the sail on one of them from Tampa to Kemah.

Re: Pacific Strictly Sail, piles of B's going to be there!

I went to the boat show in Kemah, TX last weekend. They had all those plus the First 20 and 25. The new Sense models are huge. Want a fan of the 50 or 55. One of them had a very narrow hallway down...
