I didn't see the post until now. I'm guessing it was the same boat as the one on my dock as it's gone now and my neighbors tell me it was headed towards Lake Arthur. If that's right, let me know. Thanks for moving it BTW as I'll be taking over that spot and have a much easier time docking now.

Congratulations on buying your new boat. I talked with some people a few months back who were interested in it as well but I guess you beat them in the end. So where is the boat ending up?

Re: Beneteau First 42 Manual

Scott, I am the guy you met from VA who was looking at the boat. I did not go through with the purchase. It was eventually bought by a local, LA guy who owned a smaller Beneteau. I actually would have completed the purchase had it been closer to my home in VA.

Re: Beneteau First 42 Manual

I would've had a real hard time buying that boat being so far away as well. It could've been a real interesting trip back to VA though but without knowing a lot more about the boat who knows what could've happened. The people on the dock all say it's been at least a couple of years since it left the slip and before that it was pretty much a liveaboard and he rarely went out.

So have you found a boat yet?

Re: Beneteau First 42 Manual

Funny you should ask about buying, I am having a boat surveyed today, 1/17/13 in St Maarten. If all goes as planned I will complete the purchase on 1/29/13. It is another Beneteau, unfortunately not a First 42 but the next version, a 1992 First 41s5. Boat looks great, it has been upgrade regularly and has a free mooring in St Maarten. Let me know if you decide to sail to ST Maarten and if I am not using the morring you are welcome to moor there, of course, that is if I complete teh purchase.

By the way, you were a big help in my decision on the boat in Lake Charles. The fact that your boat came in better condition, with more equipment and for less money made me go back to teh owner for price consideration. Thanks for the help!

You are resuscitating a old thread.
In 1983 you would not normally get manual with a new boat..
You would normally get individual manuals for the major components.
Engine, heater, and so on.

We may have the schematics in our doc file aboard the boat. I will check later today. If so, how good's your french?
