Re: R40 Fly Bridge (@ Miami Boat show)

I took these pictures of the refrigerator during the show. It is built-in the cabinet in the saloon, I liked the fact that the ice area is properly sealed as opposed to just a basic plastic door as in most small refrigerators. The size and containers are also nice points.

How do you get weather, wake and wind information?

I thought that sharing this information would help all of us to converge to the best apps or information sites. Please contribute with other sources you might have ;) ... Here are the sources I have been using: 1) MyRadar Pro (IOS App) I like it mostly for short term near real time. For example, I c...

Controlling humidity

My current boat is kept on a lift, it is few feet above the salt water needed for the AC cooling pump. Because of that I am unable to keep the boat's AC on dehumidifier mode while the boat is at my dock. I am waiting the delivery of my new boat, which will be kept in the water at least for a year. I...

Maintaining the fresh washer

My first boat came with the fresh water tank full, the water was coming out of the tap clean and without any odor. At that point in time my focus was on how to keep it that way. I googled so much about it, that I was coming to the conclusion that I should apply for a Chemistry major, boat owners are...

Maintaining the shower/sink sump pump

The sump pump that gets fresh water from shower, sink or AC units has to pump out soap, hair, food scraps, etc. Some boaters only deal with this maintenance when the system clogs or when they end up with a stinky sink... I learned that regular maintenance to the sump pump is required the hard way, w...

Maintaining and Cleaning Teak

My former boat has Flexiteak and I am very pleased with it. I am now moving to the real thing, my new boat has teak on the swim platform and aft lounge area. While waiting for the new boat, I started reading how many of you maintain teak. Attached here is how, I believe, Bavaria recommends the users...

R40 Fly Bridge (@ Miami Boat show)

I visited this new Bavaria at the Miami Boat show. These are just quick comments that come to mind. As an owner of a Regal 35 Sport Coup, I felt comfortable that Bavaria included all the features I am used to and more. The two-copilot seats is a major upgrade to the Admiral, as she does not have a g...
