Re: In-mast furler advice

I have a B393 with in-mast furling (this is the type boat the OP is asking about). AFAIK there is no winch like fitting at the base of the mast to manually crank the sail in.

Re: In-mast furler advice

When unfurling ease vang, ease mainsheet, grind the outhaul while keeping tension on the furling line. Let the sail come out slowly as you grind.

When furling ease the vang, ease the mainsheet,...

Re: in mast furling issue

When all the above advice fails get in your bosuns chair and go up to where it's jammed. Pull and tug until your fingers are bloody, use a plastic spatula to help get the sail out. You will have to...

Re: Tonnage Measurement Beneteau Oceanis 350 Year 1988

I thought I said that.
Although no tonnage survey is required for a boat this size in Canada the certificate of registry does show tonnage. There's a mathematical formula.

If you license the boat...

Re: Outboard oil mix specs

Use at least 50:1 TC3. Yamaha says 100:1 only because of EPA. In the same engine bought in the Bahamas (when they were still available in the US) they recommend 50:1 vs 100:1 in the States.

Re: Navigating the Reefs of Andros

Definitely do not rely on Navionics in the Bahamas. I pointed out a whole lot of errors to them but they will not tell me whether they have corrected them. I have two of their chips of the Bahamas....

Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

I have the wing keel "patented Hydrokeel" as CS puts it. She doesn't point the best. I don't race so it's not a significant factor for me. You need the deep keel for that. Also with the wing keel...

Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

Mine (88 model #6236) is the same. That's why I've never put a bimini on it. I have a dodger extension which can only be used when not using the mainsail.

Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

It all depends on where your traveller is. The Merlin was built with three different mainsheet traveller configurations. Early models had the traveller just forward of the pedestal, later models on...

Re: Voltage Drop Problem: battery, wiring or both

I agree the problem is from old wiring. But rather than change out the wiring harness it's much easier to install a relay. The relay does not mask the problem it fixes it without having to get a...

Re: Voltage Drop Problem: battery, wiring or both

It's for the engine control panel wiring. Installing a relay between the panel wiring and the solenoid will boost the voltage and it'll start every time you push the button. Here's the instructions...

Re: Voltage Drop Problem: battery, wiring or both

Common problem with wiring in older boats. Simplest solution is to install a relay. I finally bit the bullet and did that with my 26 year old boat. And I had new batteries! Get a relay from NAPA....
