Re: Winterizing a boat

I did my own shrink wrapping this season. Not very difficult but time consuming, took me about a day and a half. Next year with experience and mast down should be faster. We haven't had any serious...

Re: Antifouling Paint for the Great Lakes

Interesting, thanks. It appears VC offshore is suitable for fresh water as well. Is there any downside to using VC offshore instead of VC17 for Lake Ontario? Also, how long was your trip south?...

Re: Antifouling Paint for the Great Lakes

Micron is ablative, and it is just wearing down like it is supposed to.
VC17 is what most people use around here and I may go that route as well if starting over. However I don't think is it...

Re: Antifouling Paint for the Great Lakes

I have been researching exactly the same question. My impression is there is not a whole lot of difference in fresh water unless you are racing. My boat came with Micron CSC and when it is hauled in...

Get rid of the birds so the cat could focus on the squirrels.

Back on topic. While I understand (and follow) the best practice of using your tank and not dumping while in harbor, what about those boats that stay in beautiful Caribbean...

Re: Buying a US Sailboat.

OP's location says Port Dalhousie hence the recommendation of Youngstown which is by the way on Lake Ontario not Erie.


You can probably unload in Oswego or Sodus if you want to save the land...

Re: Buying a US Sailboat.

The closest US location to you is probably Youngstown yacht club. Check if they can help you unload/commission the boat. From there it is a short sail/motor to Port Dalhousie. Then all you need to do...

Re: what do you do for a living?

I tried doing exactly that last summer for a few weeks while cruising Lake Ontario. I am in a similar line of work. Overall it was fine but working underway single handed is not something I...

Re: Flashing oil light

I would check the oil sensor wire. Mine became loose after some extended motoring last summer, with exact same symptoms.

Beneteau 361 stern tube/cutlass bearing

I am in the process of replacing my cutlass bearing and it appears the bearing is installed in a fiberglass sleeve inside the stern tube. The sleeve was damaged together with the bearing I am looking...

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

No doubt the mechanics are using this method - they work on someone else's boats! Many would also use a slide hammer when you are not looking.

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

Suppose I take my shaft and coupling to the shop for fit&face, then take apart and reassemble on the boat. Can I still expect it to remain true?


Now that you mentioned lap fitting...any tricks...

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

I would love to do that but it would require dropping the rudder. In fact I am wondering if this is done on new boats at the factory? Probably not, at least not at Beneteau.

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

Sorry pal, your theory is fascinating but it makes no sense. Both ends of the shaft are identical and tapered. Outboard end fits my Flexofold as well as original Beneteau prop perfectly. Inboard end...

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

I would only trust a machine shop if I could bring the shaft and have it fit and faced. Unfortunately this would require removing the rudder, which I am not planning to do. So it looks like the best...

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

That's right. Both ends are tapered. Seems to be a standard thing with Beneteau.

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

Vetus looks great but would only work with straight shaft. Mine is tapered.

I will check out TransAtlantic Diesel, thanks.

I would be very interested to learn how to easily get a coupling off...

Yes, the shaft is 25 mm tapered. Flange is 4 inches.

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

The gear box is BW-7 and I can measure the coupling. Any suggestions where to look for alternatives?

Beneteau shaft coupling

I am trying to source a new shaft/transmission coupling (as a result of cutting off the old one). Beneteau can sell one for $250 which is a bit steep. I checked Buck Algonquin catalog and they don't...

Re: Windlass side loads

Hm...tried that, did not work very well possibly due to slippery rode, or the line and rode being about the same size?

Re: Windlass side loads

My rode is 120 ft chain then rope. When using rope, I can tie it off to one of the cleats but that would result in asymmetrical load to the bow, as mentioned before. Is there a better way?

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

It is not leaking anymore and will be ok until the scheduled haul if not used. I also tried to run in gear for a few minutes and it is still dry.
