Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi Virgo!

I have not reinforced the chainplates (yet). I'm not sure its necessary. Are you thinking of replacing your mast and putting in a fractional rig? What would be the advantage?

Re: Hull question

Hull question

Does anybody know what this is? I discovered it at the end of one summer when I was away and kept the boat on the hard, covered with a tarp. Could it have been the heat, friction? It looks like...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

i think I figured out what to do. My particular model of Attalia does not have a valve with a thru hull. It ONLY goes into the holding tank and the tank can only be pumped out. I think it was...

Marty how did you do that? I've always used pump out at the marina and it was a vacuum system where they attach the hose and then it would suck everything out. It was a great marina, all I had to do...
