Beer and sandwiches.

No,seriously, it holds a man overboard recovery strop. Its a large padded strop on about 30 meters of line. In theory if someone goes over, you can get the strop to them, (bit like a helicopter rescue strop). If they are able to get the strop on, can pull them to the boats side and then hopefully hook on a halyard and hoist them back onboard, well, thats the theory.

Re: Jeanneau Upgrades so far...

Mark

Are you putting in a genny on board?

I was thinking of adding one to my boat. The marine versions are very expensive compared to the small suitcase type and although I don't like the idea of petrol it seems some are now made dual fuel and will run of the LPG gas!

Anyone any experiences?

Re: Jeanneau Upgrades so far...

I also planned to but it worked out close to 10k and thats too much. Im going to try to get a good solar setup and see how that pans out. I have also looked at suitcase gennys and have asked opinions on LPG. The feedback was that you would spend a lot of time changing bottles at marinas which kind of put me off. If I cant get the solar set up in time for this season I will take a petrol gen. I have also been looking at ugraded or even additional alternators on the main engine. This seems a very good way forward. A fraction of the cost of a marine genny and quite possible to get 200amps from the main which would mean quite limited run time... Especially in conjunction with some wind / solar.
