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...

Grill modifications (sail or motor boats)

I am new to Bavaria but I am surprised with the options they pick for grill. So far I have seen grill units without cover and without any provisions to reduce smoke. While smoke is a minor issue for units mounted outside the boat, the lack of cover prevents using them as oven. I have experience with...

Re: Water heater element

I won a Bavaria 38 Cruiser and the electric water heater element just went out. It says it is 800 watts @ 110V. The water heater P/N is 41103518. Anyone have any clues to get a new element for this? Thanks I added the OEM manual for the Sigmar boiler, if this is the unit you have the part number fo...

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.

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...
