Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

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

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

My dealer told me about the new 38. Apparently it is an extremely modular design and comes in three different packages; day sailor, weekend cruiser, and long cruiser. Depending on which package is...

Re: Force 10 Igniter issue

Thank you everyone! I would have never thought that there would be a battery. Wonder why they didn't just provide a 12 volt igniter so you could wire it to the house battery?

Anyway, thank...

Force 10 Igniter issue

Hello,

I have a 2.5 year old Force 10 stove/oven. The igniter is misbehaving. When we push the igniter button it will only spark once at the elements. Normally it keeps sparking until the...

Re: Yanmar Engine blower failed

Doh! yes, not sure where my brain was. I should never post at 3am when I can't sleep. I have a similar blower for my 4JH5E. I did loose the relay once for it, cheap Chinese model. I am...

Re: Yanmar Engine blower failed

Somewhat old thread but I wanted to show my analog temp/pressure gauges that I had installed six months ago. I really disliked the brain dead indicators on the panel so I coughed up $375 parts/labor...

2014 Jeanneau 409

We are chartering a new 409 out of Nassau in April. What is the brand of the current electronics/nav instruments Jeanneau is using of late? Simrad/B&G or Raymarine?

Re: Spinlock PFDs

We really like the fit and feel of our spinlock PFD's. But we keep USGC approved PFD's near by in case we get boarded. We always use the crotch straps. Looking forward to talking to the...

Re: Pacific Strictly Sail, piles of B's going to be there!

You know, I think that is it. They tried to shove the stylings of a catamaran into the confines of a monohull. It sure seems that way to me. Again, that's just my perspective. I am sure there...

Re: Pacific Strictly Sail, piles of B's going to be there!

IMHO
I find the Sense line very odd. The layouts are just not workable while sailing. I think the boat was meant to be moored off some dock in the South of France, never to see wind in the sails. ...

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

I have had Copper Coat on my boat for almost two years now. (really too early to tell though) But FWIW, it has been fantastic. I have a diver clean the slime off every four months or so. I had...

Out on the dock they are going to have the new

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

Amen brother, exactly our plan!! But spending those five month in the PNW, same same.

Thankfully the State of Washington does not have income tax. I do wonder how long that will last. ...

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

Our plan is to sail FL, Bahamas, Caribbean, seven months of the year and haul out during hurricane season. Return to the PNW during that time. We have literally been planning this for 15 years.

Re: How much do you use your Chartplotter?

Yup, the compute power of the plotter that sits between the ears beats any chart plotter.

Re: How much do you use your Chartplotter?

FWIW C-Map is now using Explorer Chartbook as source data for it's Bahama electronic charts and is using Wavey Line as source for T&C's. Those are both very good.

Re: How much do you use your Chartplotter?

The biggest benefit for us is the AIS and radar overlay in our chart plotter. AIS is great for catching the "go fast" cargo ships coming down the Puget Sound. They fly along at 20+ kts and it is...
