Beneteau 383

I have a Mooring 383 1997 that I believe is the Oceanus series Beneteau. I have had great luck with it. It is well designed sails well. It's not a race boat but it moves along at a good 7+ in anything over about 12 kts of wind. I'm not sure if this is the same hull as your due to the age difference but so far I've got no major complaints. I do think that mooring had smaller rigs put on their charter boats though. I had a bit of a problem when I tried to order a new main (which I got directly from Beneteau). It seems my sail are the same as a B36.
I have a number of small problems I fixed if you need any advice.
