    hi nigel1, i think my post was removed and i'm not sure why. i read the rules and it didn't seem to violate any of them. i admit that was kind of off-topic for the board, but as i stated, i don't know exactly what to do.

    How to complain about the energizer add hijacking the browser, it endlessly loops and you can't get away from it, can't kill it or stop it. You have to kill the tab in Firefox 47.0

    Hi Nigel I am not sure ,If I am correct in this way of contacting you , however in a week I leave to work on my 473 in Greece . I need some advice as I have to fix 1. a bad leak on the stern propshaft gland. 2 . Vibration / play in the propshaft itself . In a previous post you mentioned prising out the cutlass bearing , so is it a nylon /teflon type bush ? is it a specific Beneteau part . The gland in the interior end - does it just need repacking or must it be replaced ?. It is the water lubricated type .I have never had any help/response from Beneteau , do you know of Beneteau agent in Pireaus , as I am very close . Any input and advice would very welcome regards Garth P.S. would an E:Mail address help or be easier ?

    hello - we have a 1969 Bristol 69 still powered with the original Atomic 4. We have done lots of upgrades since we bought WindChaser in 2005. Putting Edsel steering in this spring. Wondering about Boom Vangs... anyone have any experience with these things and want to talk? thx Tom Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick Canada

    No probs - in brief If I want to post a message regarding products ( including a free one) I can do it only in the commercial section - clear

    Hi Guy's

    I've recently join this forum so I'm new to the trade, I've recently acquired an Endurance 35 1981 Ketch, the boat has been sitting in the water for 4 years and is slowly deteriorating it's a project for sure, the previous owner passed away and his daughter inherited the boat and left it to deteriorate. I've obviously got it at a deal !!!! So what I hoping to get from this forum is advice and guidance while I take on this project and bring the girl back to life, she has teak deck's which require replacing and Perkins 4.108 engine.
    If anyone guide me or advise me I'd appericate this.

    Hello Nigel.
    New to the "ocean" marine world. Been sailing in Lake Geneva and plan to head to sea soon. I've created a video series of my 9 day adventure around Lake Geneva.
    Would love to share it with the community.

    Cheers, Alex.
