Thanks Denis!

I have not seen the boat yet, so I am looking forward to the end of may when I will sail it for the first 2 weeks :-)

Here is a google translation of the slovenian article: tinyurl.com/agk5jm
Australian article: boatsales.com.au/reviews/2007/beneteau-oceanis-43-10457

How do you think the 43 performs under sail? Under different wind speed and angles?

Have the seats in the cockpit same size (170cm) as in the OC40 or are they longer? Is the headroom in the cabin and galley ok (I am 191 cm tall)?

I did the same experince and completely changed the this white plastic part wit a wooden ( teak ) bracket ..( a bit longer than the original one..So the prblem was solved..

outboard

I found taking off the white plastic mount was impossible. How did you manage. I think Beneteau must have gled it with sikaflex.

For the moment I connected by welding the rear handrail to my arch.

I am also thinking of getting an new 8HP the lightest between Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda to put on a RIB fiberglass or aluminium tender around 280 cm.

A comment on this choice would be appreciated. Thanks.
