    I saw you post from about a year ago regarding the Hunter 456. It said contact you directly for "the god, bad, and ugly" on the 456. I'm seriously considering one right now. I would appreciate hearing your comments.
    Thanks, Nick

    That does surprise me about the DZR fittings. The marine industry seems to have assumed it is ok in boats. Perhaps yr boat was moored close to another boat that was leaking stray currents in the water.

    I know new MD of Oyster. A good friend. I bought a Beneteau Oceanis 400 (hull#1) from him many moons ago when he was MD of Beneteau UK. The Beneteau is still going strong after 23 yrs and only had one problem with brass stopcocks in all that time. Think that was also a stray current problem bec it was v close to a dehumidifier.

    hope to come across you in the Med sometime. I will be on my Italian friend's 53 (which he got after the Oyster) 3-18 July from Stintino, Sardinia to Ibiza. "Pepolo". Then in Croatia on a Jeanneau 45DS which i have chartered 8-29 Aug, Split-Dubrovnik-Split. "Zsaffi". Am intending to buy a 2008/2009 Jeanneau 45DS early next yr.

    Ken, that's one great boat name. I spent many days in my youth exploring the Orinoco. One of the most beautiful places on earth. Best wishes.

    This AP problem was the least of what went on

    Hi Ken,
    Where are the best places to visit on your island? We only plan on spending around a week there and prefer anchoring over marinas. We are in Menorca and plan on working our way down the south coast for the next week. Cheers, Robert

    Thanks for your comments and Friend request. I am happy to accept. To make you feel real good I went for a walk in the falling snow yesterday. However most of it did melt away as soon as it hit the ground.

    Oh, by the way, Oysters have always been on my dream list. I just don't like the trend that they and Hallberg/Rassy are following.

    Hi, Kenomac.

    Thank you for the answers you provided to my questions. I appreciate the benefit of your experience. I think you have saved me from wasting a lot of time looking at that boat and perhaps even serious consequences from a purchase.

    My impression is that your sentiments are almost universal on CF. I haven't dug through all the archives yet, but there was a thread recently on center cockpits. For budgetary reasons, the poster specifically requested a mass production boat. Conspicuously missing among the 4 dozen or so brands favorably mentioned (and, actually, not mentioned at all) were Hunter and Beneteau. I was surprised at the omission of the latter since a few days ago, in a different thread, I thought Dockhead had commended Beneteau as an authentic blue water boat.

    Anyway, thanks again. I appreciate you taking the time to enlighten me.

    Regards,
    Ded reckoner

    Yes, and I have just bought an Icom 802 SSB with Pactor modem. It's not installed yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Every long-distance cruising boat should have a radio shack, it seems to me.

    Hi Ken:

    I primarily use mobile telephone internet while cruising. I have a Globesurfer III internet terminal with antenna mounted on first spreader. This distributes the internet connection by WiFi. I use T-Mobile in the UK which is brilliant. In France, I use Orange. It works great -- almost like WiFi at home.

    I also have a Ubiquiti Bullet high power WiFi access point. This is also mounted up at the first spreader. I can connect to WiFi access points miles away with this. Sometimes seaside restaurants have WiFi; if you eat there, they give you the code. Then when you get back to the boat at anchor, you can still pick up the signal.

    I also have a Globaltel sat phone hardwired. The previous owner of my boat installed it; I have never used it.

    That's about it!

    Cheers, Cameron
