Think of the mast as an arc pulled forward in the top, held fix at the base, while remembering that the back stay isn’t a straight backwards force but rather with a significant downward component. If...

You are right; maybe I shouldn’t have argued Scampi in general. I have only sailed on one Scampi. But on that boat the mast bended like a banana with spinnaker and a broken baby stay. Maybe it was...

I left slip 167 Tuesday morning – the slip just next to building 6 which is one of the buildings impacted by the fire. My thoughts go out to Paul and Carlos and the rest of the wonderful people...

Absolutely keep it. And make sure it is in good shape. I wouldn’t dare to use a spinnaker on a Scampi without a baby stay. I was crewing on a Scampi during an extremely windy race and we snapped the...

The voltmeter panel / spurious alarm is a known problem. Beneteau has prototypes out of a new panel. Last I heard all panels will be replaced in June when the testing of the new design is done.

I just saw Dan Goldberg’s (the one with the nice signature) excellent reply.. I could have sworn that BI / Cutty was more like 35 and a bit NM but maybe I’m wrong and it just felt like it. Anyhow,...

First of all – Congratulations to your new B40. You will like her. We kind of love ours.. Memorial day; you probably want to do some slip reservations in advance in at least in BI, Cutty and Martha’s...

Needless to say I agree with you. It’s a no brainer. You want the warranty. But as you saw in my original post I’m baffled about the fact that plenty of production boats come from the factory with a...

These guys set out to sail from Sweden to New Zeeland in an Albin Vega. They changed their mind and the boat is now for sail (edit - yes it is indeed for sail but also for sale...) in the Caribbean –...

Well we are getting close to the core of the problem. First off I need to know if it is my dealership that have used a cooling fluid that voids the Yanmar warranty or if it is Beneteau. In the former...

Yes and I thank you. The problem I have is that the manual (Yanmar) states red. The boat was filled up with green. The information I currently have from Beneteau suggests that green is OK. Combine...

Bubb2,
Great link. Post 3 is good. Someone that isn’t as junior here as I may dare to do some copy and paste. However; the link doesn’t speak so much to if green is bad for the engine. Just that Red...

Bubb2,
Yes indeed I have a dealer problem. You can say that again. That is the reason I took the boat out of the dealer yard and into a certified Yanmar center for this work. But the Beneteau dealer...

Beneteau vs. Yanmar – Green vs. Red Cooling Fluid

OK so here we go… I have a 2008 Beneteau 40. I had a simple engine warranty problem (hard start). The Yanmar service center that performed the repair found that the dealer had forgotten to register...

Bill,
My E80 did not come loaded with charts so the card I was referring to is indeed a memory card. For the E80 it’s pretty much a normal CF card (same as in some digi cameras). But it is loaded...

Nika,
I guess I should have read the forum rules prior to asking you to PM me. Apparently you need 10 posts before you can send a PM. And I had an honorable one (1) before this one. I can read your...

Nika,
Maybe I’m too late in replying and maybe you have already decided. In that case I’m sure that you will have many wonderful days and nights in whatever boat you decided on.
Anyhow, I have a...
