    I am looking for a solution to a problem that I have with my Fischer Panda Generator and saw a lot of your post about FP. I am taking the audacity and writing you a message to see if you could help me with this.

    I have a FP 6000 mini in my Beneteau 423. The generator is from 2003 (forgot to get the hrs from the panel, but I will have to assume it is around 2,500hrs). on our last cruise the generator stopped producing power but the engine kept running. when this happened it was in the morning after the gen running the entire night. we had two air conditioners (15k and 9k btu), battery charger and microwave 800W. we have load up the generator with this and a little more and never had any problems. when we lost power we shut down the generator and started it after a few minutes but still had the same, engine running no power. there were no alarms on in the control panel.

    Any ideas where I should start looking?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, do you still have your Bb750b boom brake for sale? If so please let me know how much you want for it and where it is. I have a few acquaintances in The US who may be able to help me get it back.

    Hi svHyLyte,
    Could you give me the name of the harbor in SW France where the yacht accident occurred?

    Hi, We have a loose prop strut that we're troubleshooting on a 1985 First 42. I saw in the forums that you have an old tech notice about struts from beneteau. Would you mind sending it to me?

    Hi there, I just read one of our posts advising about a San Fransisco to Alaska crossing, and it read like you have a lot of passage experience. I'm not very experienced at all and trying to decide what boat to buy for extended cruising. People in the forums seem to suggest that traditional voyagers are much more suitable, and that mass production boats like the Beneteaus are best sailed around the coast. But I can see on your profile that you are a Beneteau owner, so maybe that's not the case? What do you think?

    Many thanks!

    I had a 1995 first 42.7 last year, changed to a 1984 38 First, what a difference. but the hull is stronger and i can sail pretty much alone if need be. Miss those electric winches

    Mate of the replys I've got yours makes the most sense and does not make arrogant guesses as to my sailing experience. Iknow many sailors who just never use the kite and therefore no nothing of its use. It would not be my intention to gybe ..only to set her with a running nor easter to scream down the east coast of new south wales or where ever..thanks for your kind response and Ill check out the site you suggest Fairwinds and farewell my friend....ROSSCO.
