Fresh water leak

I found my bilge with water and started looking for the source. It turns out that the leak was on a quick connector that connects the blue pipe to fresh water tank heater. The leak was on the thread side, not on the quick connect side. The water seal is achieved with an o-ring, there isn’t any seal ...

Re: BAV 56 rubber dinghy

I do not know the brand that Bavaria bought it from, the youtube video says "Tender 310" and has a Bavaria logo on it.

Adding an anchor safety wire

Bavaria builds the R40 with an anchor/windlass system that lacks a mechanical safety mechanism to prevent an accidental anchor deployment. As such an accident could be catastrophic if the boat is underway, I decided to add one to mine. I purchased the Lewmar safety strap from WestMarine, I like the ...

The two small size ones serve a berth plus a head each, the two larger ones serve the galley area. Although 24K BTU seems a good size at first glan...

A little worried after they pulled out of the US, but glad to see them at recent shows. Hopefully, they can establish a broader dealer...
