  1. Who cares why they are doing it? It needs to be done. Whether for political or moral reasons, they are doing the right thing. Using Red v Blue cynicism to discredit someone doing the right thing just makes one part of the overall problem. Or do you also think this is not the right thing? Does this "further alienate" the permanently alienated? I have no desire for unity with racists, nationalists, white supremacists, etc. myself...
  2. Hi Max Sorry but I'm getting out of my element here. I'm unaware of anything to help your handset hotspot perform better. I have a cellular gateway installed and the tech installed 2 different antennas on my lower spreaders. MiMo is the technology I think? All I know is with my gateway I'm streaming full video webex meetings and working multiple enterprise cloud applications (e.g. salesforce) when my phone itself is showing 1 to zero bars.
  3. watched the WHOLE series unlike most commenting. Yes, understood, thus my comment "are you f'ing kidding me this isn't all post grounding drunken dishonest yards BS" acknowledging the yard's terrible work. I'm also saying Beneteau has whole sections where there is no bond, or the bond released bringing no "bonded" material with it thus not bonded, or places where the bonding never even touched one side. Clearly visible in the application pattern of the uncompressed bonding material. Amazing. There is no way to tell using this construction method whether you did a good bonding without dest
  4. Look I have a materials engineering masters degree. Your ridiculously condescending comment I dismiss. "strong glue you can chisel off easily" ? give me a break...if it is bonded at all there will at least be some damage to the substrate. That "bonder" was superficially bonded to the hull at best. Did you watch the videos? it flaked right off. Some of it was NEVER IN CONTACT with the insert either. Do you work for Beneteau? if not then get off your knees. If you have a Beneteau and are rationalizing your purchase, I cannot help you.
  5. At first I was like "ooof those groundings must have been violent" then after a few episodes I was like " are you f'ing kidding me this isn't all post grounding drunken dishonest yards BS" then recently they were knocking bonder off the hull with chisels easily and I was like "holy shit Beneteau is out of control on quality assurance on their bonding" . No way would I buy a beneteau, there is no way to QA the bonding without destroying the build to destructively test the pan bond. How does beneteau know the insert has stuck? right...they don't. this should be very embarrassing for t
  6. No kidding.

  7. I found that, for even the marina, a cellular modem with its own sim card and good antennae on the spreaders allows me to work at some capacity from the boat. Even with my home grown Bullit.POE setup it is a non-starter. I have a Sierra Wireless AT&T data modem and 2 diversity antennas. Essentially my boat has its own phone number with a big robust hot spot. I have found this to be superior albeit more expensive that WiFi but work is work.
  8. Dunno, didn't measure it. Just bought this. Factory arch. PO installed extensions they actually go up and out, it looks worse from under. All that coming off. I can mount panels without all that shit. Also, the boat has 9 various antennae on it. Cell x 2, Satellite, WiFi, GPS x 2, VHF, Satellite TV, SSB so there is rail for that.
  9. only a dinghy and solar panels...jeez...trying to stay in control Valiant 42
  10. first post. no tits. but what I consider the nicest ass, not mine poking out, the boat's.
