Hi All, so happy to find this forum. We also just purchased a 1984 Beneteau First 42 in November so slowly working through her 'issues' and are ready to launch next week to 'finally' give her some sea room. This is a big step from a Tayana 37 so we are quite excited to see the performance and test ourselves in sailing this type of thoroughbreed. Our sea trial was sadly lacking in the wind department. I am also interested in some interior view shots and ideas on replacing head liners and the cabin sole, this one is quite worn out and saggy.
Cheers and I am sure I will also have a million questions in the coming weeks and months.
