Re: Beneteau Oceanis vs First

We also own a 80s First 42.. moved aboard it almost 10 years ago and have cruised the West Coast from Alaska to Mexico.. leaving in the spring for Hawaii and the Marshalls.. we're both 60 and handle the boat fine..
She is fast, the boat, not my wife, and love the way she handles the rough stuff, again, the boat..
for cruising, the water tanks are slacking but we cured that issue with a watermaker..
In the last ten years of having R3, we've never seen another boat that we would rather have.. we feel we made the right choice..
