Re: US Approves Ferry Service to Cuba

You can purchase a week long all inclusive vacation from Canada for not much more than that.

Re: slip vs. mooring

10 years...I thought we have it bad here. Can you try the slip for a season and then go back to the mooring if you find it is not worth the extra cost?

Re: Westerbeke 30B three oil leak

Thanks for the tips, much appreciated. How about removing the tranny? I guess the main problem is access to the bolts, or is there more to that? Also is there any tricks for moving the shaft back...

Re: Westerbeke 30B three oil leak

Thanks for the suggestion. I cleaned everything with solvent and a few days later had a good look with mirror and lights. The pan was clean and the oil was found on the bottom of flywheel housing....

Westerbeke 30B three oil leak

Last year towards the end of the season I started noticing some oil drops in the bilge. Mirror inspection showed possible leak around the rear end of the oil pan, between the oil pan and back plate. ...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Mercedes-Benz museum in Germany has 1988 200D with 1.9 million km on the original diesel. Used as a taxi in Portugal. Assuming 50 km/h average, which is probably generous for a taxi, this is 38000...

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...

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...

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...
