Re: Maintaining and Cleaning Teak

I have a friend that was using teak oil regularly. The black joint started to degrade leaving black marks on the teak. I also noticed that the teak on his boat swim platform became quite slippery when wet.

He stopped the practice, his teak and joints are looking good (normal) now.

Re: Gediz

My Bavaria R40 coupe should be delivered a month from now. Based on your experience, I am wondering if there are recommendations you could give to check out during the delivery and any other "watch outs". I also curious if the small door for the engine room has proven adequate for your routine checks.

Re: Welcome!

My boat is scheduled for December, I can't wait!!!
Fortunately the dealer allowed me to keep my former boat until the R40 is delivered, this is a good approach.

Re: Loose Stanchions

The previous owners forum, that seems to have been taken down, had a number of owners that have developed solutions and dealt with loose and leaking stanchions on their boats. Does anyone here have any fixes they have developed? Generally they are attached with bolts and held by nuts underneath. If...

Idea for a great captain foot stool

Perhaps this is the most ingenious and well thought solutions I have seen. If you have other ideas for such a modification, given that I have n...

Coupe or Fly Bridge for a medium size boat?

If you are like me you study boat designs and options for a long time before deciding on yours. Here what made me pick the R40 coupe version as opposed to the fly bridge version. Perhaps I started somewhat biased because I already had a Regal 35 coupe. However, after coming to see several boats over...
