Re: Jeanneau Attalia

JensK I think thats it! But I might try your healing experiment. But, it seems to come from the head and then fill the area between the galley and the chart table. But the cockpit locker is bone dry...even the area way aft at the very bottom. more research!

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

It would be fun to be there with you and try it out.
If the locker is dry, it may be the exhaust between the motor and the muffler (correct?) which is below the floor of the locker (in my boat).
Best regards

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

I've found the window leak to be the caulking at the top of my window. Black boat life product has worked the best. Usually an every 3-4 yr remove and replace. I have not tried tightening the screws yet. Altho have some rubber washers for the outside, and slightly larger washer for inside. But my inside plywood is somewhat rotted in places as this has been an issue since day one according to the original owner. At least on the starboard side it is.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi guys,

Stupid question but to me not so stupid. Winches. What kind are they and have you serviced them yourselves. I now have a brand new Genny and so am looking to improve other areas. I've actually never, ever serviced them. Not a big deal really when I did not race and only sailed summers. Now that we do alot more sailing including some racing , I need to look into it. I bought the grease, I just need to find out how to take it apart and not lose any parts in the process. They are not self-tailing...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

I've started the work in changing the rig on our Attalia and while doing that I discovered that the wood under the rig attachment point is rotten. The same as on the two Arcadias you mentioned Marty. The wood is removed and I will replacing it with epoxy. Does anyone have some tip in what iIcan use as a distanser material instegs of wood?

I'll come back back with more information about or makeover project.

I don't know the brand of our winches, but I'replaced the two for the genoa to a pair of self tailing Harken. I'm thinking about usibg the old winches for the gennaker. In that case I should place them aft of the new ones. Have anyone placed winches like that?

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Dear Waymar
On the French private website, before it closed, I found the winches to be: SU 42 Winch 42C.
The "SU" doesn't really mean anything to me.
I use the manual for Lewmar Winch Service Manual: SERVICING TWO SPEED WINCHES 16, 24, 30 & 40. I found it on the internet. I cannot upload PDFs here. It is quite similar in construction.
Notice that both grease and oil are used, important with oil only in the pawls.
I usually tape a large sheet of plastic around the winch (hole in the middle), to catch flying/lost pieces and to avoid dirt on the deck - it is quite nasty oil dirt coming out.
I usually serve it every secooind year.
Best regards

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Thanks Jens!

I found a pdf file online. Next job is to service the winches (have not done it in 11 years...).

As to the leak. I,ve pulled the floorboards and will install a go pro to film and see when and where the leak is from next time we go sailing. I'M convinced its from somewhere aft. stay tuned!

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi Jonas,

I find the sailplan and winch location on the Attalia very simple and straight forward. I don't think it needs any more winches. Although in a few races we could possibly have used an extra one but I would not even know where to put it. Not too much room.

Hi Waymar,

It´s more like a luxury "problem" or an opportunity when we have a pair of winches. We use to set the gennaker outside the genoa before we take in/down the genoa. That is no problem with only one winch thanks to the clutch. It would be better to have two winches when go from gennaker to the genoa and in that case use the aft winch for the gennaker and the other for the genoa. I wouldn't buy a pair of winches to this. As you mentioned Waymar, there isn't so much space to use.
