    Repairing an HS35 handset

    The USB port is what I used to charge mine for a year, when there were no charging cradles available.

    Repairing an HS35 handset

    My charging cradle died a couple of years ago, took forever for B&G to have replacements available, but once they did they were reasonably priced and an easy replacement of the existing cradle. I think the new one came with quite a pigtail for the wiring connection, it should be easy to add one...

    New Airmar Technology

    I like having both, I like the paddlewheel data for AWS using STW. I have both STW and SOG scrolling on my chart plotter, but I have my two B&G Triton T41 displays showing the paddlewheel boat speed/depth page on one display, with composite wind data page on the other. This summer, my...

    Please, when can I come back?

    Absolutely worth a trip! We bought this cruising guide two years ago, when we were planning to spend more time in Canada. I’m just now going though it, and I love how it’s written, each location has its own little illustration many with a little comment or a picture story. It makes me want to...

    New Airmar Technology

    The paddlewheel can definitely be frustrating, but in our area, the difference between paddlewheel speed and GPS speed can be 50% or more.

    Please, when can I come back?

    Stuck in between a stormy October weekend and a pandemic whole house remodel project… when can I come back to where I love to be? Quoting here, “Just awesome”.

    Considering purchasing a 2009 Beneteau 34 (not a 343) - seeking owner opinions

    I'm sorry that I didn't see this when it was posted. On the other hand, we have recently had a sail which left me reasonably impressed with our Oceanis 34. If you are still considering it, I absolutely would recommend it (or @Davidasailor26 's Oceanis 37). When we ordered our 34, it was two...

    Stern rail seats

    I DIY'd a set of rail seats for our First 285 out of teak. On the 34, you'll need quite a large notch for the backstay on both sides. I find that with such a large cockpit, and with seating which already extends all the way out to the rails (granted, there is a 'curb'), that I don't need or...

    Electronic enclosure box for Beneteau

    Ditto, on the welcome! Some of the B&G electronics associated with the autopilot, radar, wireless networking may be scattered in various places throughout the boat. On our 34, the autopilot computer and its compass are located behind the rear bulkhead in the aft berth. Do you have an owners...

    Adding kayak to sailboat

    56mph gusts... WOW! That would certainly make the rigging sing! Good thing to have extra lines for security and comfort (physical and mental). We were on a cruise ship in the Aleutian Islands in 2019 when we ended up cruising circles northeast of Dutch Harbor for an entire day, waiting for a...

    You might try contacting iNavX for support. From your location, it's not going to be a real time communication, but I have found them to be very responsive to requests for assistance. Good luck!

    Adding kayak to sailboat

    We have the same carriers and have used them with the Pelican kayaks that we got from Costco, and now with a pair of Advanced Elements inflatables. We have been very happy with them. When we are not going to be needing them for a while, I loosen the clamps and pivot them back against the...

    Oceanis 37: leaking Volvo Stern Gland shaft seal when engine is running

    At least I'd have stopped water from getting somewhere! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I think all of the possible sources of water are tag-teaming me, when I fix one, something else starts. The only consistent symptom is that it's visible around the engine tray, makes its way forward, and then gets occasionally...

    Oceanis 37: leaking Volvo Stern Gland shaft seal when engine is running

    Is it possible to put too much grease in it? I had mine replaced last fall. I had noticed uneven wear as well as noticing water coming in when we were motoring, and I became paranoid about it. At one point, I used a zip tie to add a little pressure to help it keep a seal. I thought a hose...

    Sorry... have you checked to see if it switches the AC outlet?

    You're going to get PM shortly from some guy in Louisiana, telling you to stop playing with the switch!
