Re: Conch Charter BVI STAY AWAY

I have had five (or is it six) great charters on Conch. They have some great boats and they have some tomatoes. The Beneteau Cyclades 43 and their Beneteau M393's are GREAT boats. I also sailed...

Re: Sailing in Greece

We did a one way charter from Athens to Paros Island through the Cyclades chain for two weeks. Of our eight charter adventures it was the best one by far. Down hill sailing all the way, 280nm of...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

Yes, great boat. There are some dogs in the fleet that must be avoided. The 42 Hunter Passage and the Beneteau 40 center cockpit are two that would be miserable IMHO. While at their docks I...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

The Beneteau Cyclades 43? This is, by far, our favorite Conch boat. Fast both sailing and motoring. Cyclades were specifically built by Beneteau for charter fleet. It sailed much better than...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

Oh, how did I forget to mention this one.

We had a Conch boat in which the starter would not kick in if we were on a port tack with any little amount of heel. It took five days to figure out...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

I have also chartered with Conch five times and likely will again. But I never charter any of their boats without bringing my own roll duct tape and a handful of oversized zip ties. :) One time...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

Wow, that is pretty bad. As much as we have enjoyed Conch, this is no way to treat a customer. I wonder if they are on a downhill slide? Or if business has really turned up due to the economy in...

Re: Main halyard clutch, line slippage

I have 8mm - 14mm capacity on my clutch, and with my 1/2" 12.5mm line it should be perfect.

I am going to hack off 8 inches of halyard from the head of the main. That should get me another...

Re: Main halyard clutch, line slippage

I have (9) of these clutches and when compared to the one that slips they all look the same as far as bite of the teeth. I cleaned the teeth off very carefully with alcohol. They are only 3 years...

Re: Main halyard clutch, line slippage

OK, that is brilliant and simple, why the hell didn't I think of that, doh!

Sometimes I get too close to a problem to see the obvious.

It does not slip when any reef is set.

Re: Can bleach damage FRP

Thanks! I am going to go the bleach route. I do have easy access to my keel bolts to rinse them off so it should not be a problem.

Re: WIFI, Gofree with basic IS20 devices.

And, btw, you cannot muck with the autopilot from the GoFree clients. They restrict that for obvious reasons. But all other data is there. I use it for setting way points which is nice to do...

Re: WIFI, Gofree with basic IS20 devices.

I have a GoFree wired into my Simrad NSS12. It is an ethernet connecter with Simrad's proprietary screw in plugs. So you do need a Simrad/B&G MFD with the correct ethernet cable. Pretty easy to...

Apparently, since I started the resolution to this issue with Vinegar I may just kill everyone if I start using Bleach now! This would be my very own WMD inside my boat:)

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

I agree, Beneteau is very open to direct customer interaction. I wonder who this dealer is.
