Re: Do all Beneteaus have iron keels?
No offense meant to someone with an iron keel.
None taken. Suit yourself, if you prefer lead. Captain makes the rules.
However, if maintenance is your concern, I think you're mistaken. Both have maintenance gotchas. Grinding and recoating a few rust patches, now and then, would be among the simpler boat maintenance issues I recall. Even rebedding the keel joint isn't a big deal. Both are easily done when bottom painting.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
