Re: Beneteau USA closing operations?

In that case you should rethink the basis of your post. Just read the original thread. What do you not understand in that thread? If a boat ends up at a dealer with "a punch in it" does that mean...

Re: Beneteau USA closing operations?

On what do you base this post. Have you ordered a new Beneteau? Are you experiencing problems with Anchor Yachts? (B dealer in Toronto). Are you talking about Beneteau USA ceasing production or...

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

I bet anything that it did not leave the Beneteau plant like that. There may be structural damage. You are having serious problems with this boat. I would send an email to the president of Beneteau...

Re: In-mast (un-)furling problems

That's your problem. You must have tension on the outhaul when you furl. Ease the main, ease the vang, tension on the outhaul and grind on the furling line.

Re: In-mast (un-)furling problems

Furling mains jam when the sail is furled incorrectly. A baggy main may exacerbate the problem. As stated previously you need more weight on the outhaul as you furl. Watch the sail as it goes into...

Re: Force 10 Igniter issue

Have you checked the battery? Also the tiny wires leave a lot to be desired.

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

Interesting. I would check to see that the optional equipment was supposed to be installed by Beneteau. Big dealers install a lot of the optional equipment (that's a profit center and keeps the...

Re: Blocks, Sheaves and Pulleys: Did I screw up???

Mark,

I checked my blocks. The sheaves are a tad over an inch and the line is 3/8. They are Barton blocks (the cheapest I could find at the time). Never had a problem except once or twice...

Re: Blocks, Sheaves and Pulleys: Did I screw up???

Mark,

I have real tiny blocks on mine. Triples on the engine side and doubles on the bow. No problem at all hoisting the dink. The line must match the sheaves. Going down to the boat today,...

Re: Choosing a wind generator

I started in 1990 with a Windbugger, not the original 2 blade but a 3 blade. A bit noisy, good output but expensive parts and lots of brushes. Bugger Bob used to grind the identification marks off...

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

Why would you fully pay for something that is yet to be delivered. When I bought my new Beneteau I put $1 down initially and only a few thousand down until the boat was commissioned and delivered. ...

Re: New CS30

Do not tighten your toe rail this way. Tighten it by tightening the nut down below while someone holds a screwdriver on the bolt. If you try turning the bolt with screwdriver you'll only loosen the...

Re: Boomkicker and winter storage

Why do you need a crane to remove your boom? Topping lift and a halyard should do it.

Re: Boomkicker and winter storage

I would take the boom and vang off and store them down below. Michigan is a lot different from Annapolis. And ice is not your friend!
