Thanks for checking on the circuit breakers for us. Can't find a supplier in the U.S..

Mark
I have the same water tank arrangement that Daniel has, 2-71 gallon tanks on either side of the anchor locker. I've not seen 2-35 gallon tanks on a Mahe, didn't think that was an option.

It may be that yours are 240v, and the others set up for 115v

That is likely true, the picture that Mark supplied is a 120 volt 30 amp system, same as mine.

Hagar Circuit Breakers

Scott,
Spoke to www.hager.co.uk today. Their tech said that Hagar MLN710A Circuit Breakers are the UK version which are more readily available than the MFN710. The F in the number stands for the French reference.
I think now I will be able to find them.

Hey John,

Are you back down in beautiful Sydney Harbour?

Trying to work out if it is you or Reflexxion at Bayview. It was going dark when we went past in the dinghy on Monday night.

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

Thanks!

Scott,

Thanks for the offer to make the Bahama crossing together. Still too far out to have timing set. Will keep you posted though!

Mark,

Thanks for the heads-up on 2009 changes. We can't wait for some pictures to come back from our salesman who is in La Rochelle for a FP seatrial.

Regards,
Chuck

Wink re pictures

Mark,

He's taking some shots of our hull at the factory though I do like the one you've posted! Where was it taken?
I worked at General Dynamics in the early 80's and spent a lot of time in Mystic. One of my favorite places in New England.

Wayward Wind returned to Middle Harbour weeks ago. Had a fantastic sail down from Pittwater. Nice to have a slippery bottom - and clean propellors - again!

That could be Reflexion you saw as I believe Martin is planning to have her anti-fouled before setting sail for the Whitsundays.

Martin, you still in Sydney?

It is amazing how much quicker you go with a clean bottom.
Your antifoul looked like a great job.

Do you have any plans to sail up to the Whitsundays ?

Bowsprit attachment question

Can someone post pics of their FP supplied bowsprit? I'm interested in the aft attachment configuration and how it joins the hull.
That option is a bit salty for me at >$5K and there are many CF choices out there for a lot less.
Has anyone done any homework on this? Thanks in advance for the info!

Chuck

Wow, that is some increase in price.

When we bought 2gether (hull 29) the price of the bowsprit, additional winch, blocks and jammer, swivel for the head of the sail, sheets and furling drum was $3137 Australian dollars.

I thought it was a bargain at the time but seems it really was.

I had 7 blisters on my hull last year when I hauled out for a bottom job (all on the inside), 2 had water in them. F-P paid to repair them, you have a 5 year warranty on the hull. I was told that there was not primer placed on my hull just antifouling paint. F-P paid for a new primer coat as well as blister repair.
