    Flapper goes off for no reason

    Yes, I meant the bilge pump float switch. (Sorry.. wrote late at night)... we did check for a short where it connects to the pump.. all seems ok.. It is silent this morning.. but that doesn't mean it will act up again.. I will check the fresh water pressure switch... do you rebuild the bilge...

    Windlass on a Beneteau 343

    Ok.. do I need a Drum? with the V2 - it is either Gypsy only or with a Drum. I am not sure what I would operate the Windlass Drum (separate from the Gypsy). Is the drum just a backup measure? I don't think I would use it for docking with a 36 foot boat

    Windlass on a Beneteau 343

    That is really helpful. Apparently there was an error in one of the website description that puts a limit of the V2 at 600 pounds which is obviously wrong

    Reverse Osmosis system under sink Beneteau 343

    Hi Stu... Where would you put it? I was just thinking of space? There are the 4 stage types.. which are the best.. but they take up more room. I have a AquaTru standalone in my condo... but that sits in my pantry ... You do need access to change the filters...
