Re: Do all Beneteaus have iron keels?

Googling "iron keel" brings up a lot of maintenance issues and lots of work. It seems the rust likes to form at the keel/hull joint.

It just sounds like a lot of added expense and headache. I do really like some the Beneteau layouts (361 specifically) but shy away due not wanting the iron keel.
