FP made a few suttle changes to the 2009 model

Chuck,
Congradulations on your new ride "Normandie". As you will see FP made a few suttle changes to the 2009 model.
1) Now has three forward salon opening windows. 2007 had one, 2008 had two. Many had asked for more ventilation
2) The saloon cushions are a tan plether instead of white
3) Center Salon window is now surrounded with tan plether instead of wood.
4) Came with a 35lb CQR ancor
5) Not sure, but I think the Hot Water Heater is different also. I will post a picture to see what everone else has compared to mine, but they have had a problem of the hot water exit hose bursting sometimes.

The hot water heater is the same as my 2007. Would love to have the 3 opening hatches on my boat.

Some things

Cotemar,
I guess you have 2 tanks of 270 litres. They probably pre-produced you boat before you ordered and they put the two tanks in because you can't do that afterwards, making a boat with one tank hard to sell.

For those people who are ordering a boat: I suggest you ask Fountaine Pajot to add a triple jammer to the double jammer on the rooftop. We ordered an extra double jammer, and are sorry we did not take an extra triple. This is needed for the two reefing lines and the lie through the boom which pulls the rear end of the sail backwards (forgive for for not knowing the English term). The jammers in the front of the boom are not suitable.

Another tip for present owners. The jib halyard runs through a ring just before going into the mast, at the top of the jib. My impression is that this ring's main purpose is to damage your halyard in one single season. The risk is that the halyard is worn through before you discover it. I took the halyard out of this ring. Please correct me if I am wrong. Might it also have a purpose in preventing warp of the aluminium furle profile?

Kind regards,
Jef

Hi Mark,

Were the additional hatches over the sinks in the head an extra?

We have never had a problem with the head seeming damp. We open the escape hatch when we are at anchor and put a reminder flag on the steering wheel so we do not leaving the anchorage with the hatch open.

I do not know if Chuck has made his engine decision yet but an observation if I may.

I thought (indeed I said in a much earlier post) that the 20 hp engines were enough. But ...when we were in 40 knots and a rising sea very close to a lee shore I would have given anything for the 30 hp motors. We held our position and gradually clawed our way to sea but there was a moment or two of concern.

DtM,
The additional hatches over the sinks in the head must be standard. I did not order them. Did not even know about them. See pictures below.
They have frosted lexan, so as to not view into the head area. That makes three new hatchs they added this year. Customers must have stated that they needed more ventilation.
My delivery Captain was pleasantly surprised when he seen that we had the 30 hp. He said they are more responsive and really moves out, even just on one engine. He has delivered 3 Mahes so far and did a great job for us.

Very nice perspective from up the mast! Do all Mahes come with a spinnaker halyard from the factory?

Great news on the added forward hatches for 2009.

Chuck

Chuck,
The spinnaker halyard must be standard, but a winch would have to be mounted to the winch pad rivited to the lower port side of the mast.

Not sure whether the actual spinnaker halyard is standard but I suspect that the block hanger and the cutouts and top sheave are fitted to the mast (and moused) as standard.

Normandie sighting in Annapolis??

My Mahe, hull #103, has just arrived in Annapolis! Any forum members spot her yet at the dock near the Chart House, red canvas and sailcover? Can't wait to get down there Monday to "kick the fenders" on the Normandie!

Chuck,
Congradulations on your new Normandie ride. Take some pictures. Have never seen a red and white Mahe.
Mark

Hey Mark,

The photo below was shot last week on the morning after she arrived. The bimini wasn't installed for the crossing. I'm heading down there Sat. for the commissioning meeting and will get more pics.
Thanks for the info on the LED conversion.

Regards,
Chuck

Chuck,

Nice picture of Normandie with the red Canvas. That must be a first. Never heard or seen the red canvas before. Did she come over on a ship or her own bottom?

Mark
