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...

Re: Beneteau shaft coupling

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

Great suggestions, thanks everyone. I will definitely install the solid clamp for now regardless of what I decide to do. Good to hear there is some experience with similar temporary fixes.

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.

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

Unfortunately replacing it now is not an option since the winter haulout is less then 2 months away.

Re: Downwind Sailing

You are absolutely right. However on my boat I found that under 15 kts true it would probably take close to 40 degrees off course to achieve any real speed improvement over wing on wing. Above 15...

Re: Downwind Sailing

I have just completed a 70nm DDW run, and being new to the boat I was eager to experiment. I started with 10-15kts true and tried broad reaching and jibing for a few hours. I found that broad...

My experience so far has been positive. I can report back after I launch in a month or so. The winter package cost last year was 2.80/sq ft. For some reason they considered my cradle "a little too...

Re: Lake Ontario winter haul options

Ship Shape yard in Port Weller is probably the cheapest in the west end of the lake. They have all you need. I decided to give them a try this winter.
