I'M also thinking of buying a Beneteau First32s5, the boat that I am looking at happens to have a bulb keel. I live and sail on the mid west coast of Ireland and altough its a good sailing area to say that we are short on facilities would be an understatement ie. we have no marinas only moorings and drying harbours. And this is where my problem lies: does the 32s5 or for that matter any bulb keel boat dry against a harbour wall well? does it put too much strain on too small an area of the hull? Or should I look for the fin or wing keel version?
