Re: Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 39i
Congratulations, Very nice boat, a friend has an '06 36iP that I really enjoy sailing, with it's weight and the deep bulb keel it is really stable in rough surface conditions.
The engine box is so well insulated you can't hear the engine at the helm, on that note, the blower is located right above the engine in an exhaust mode (very effective) it should turn on with ignition key but because you can't hear it you often don't know if it's failed.
The sail cover is a factory item available at reasonable price from Jeanneau factory parts here, it's only weakness is the zipper, the stiches in it pull out under pressure when your zipping it up, handle with care. It will also roll up easily if you are going racing or just getting serious.
I don't believe you can start the engine with the house bank on the French boats which eliminates a redundancy many of us have put to use in a pinch, so you want to maintain a nice well charged start battery.
