Thumbs up Re: 352

Yes & no. Haven't found one devoted to either the 351 or 352. There are a couple active B owners forums at: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/beneteau-owners and http://beneteau.sailboatowners.com/

We sail out of South Shore Yacht Club in Milwaukee. Where do you plan on keeping the boat?

Re: 352

We are thinking of Holland, Michigan. We live in Kalamazoo and it's about an hour and 10 minutes away. South Haven wold be closer but the facilities aren't as nice and the availability of slips between the lake and the bridge downtown are limited, and beyond the bridge the river is narrow and depth becomes an issue in the slips. This will be our first year so we wll test it out.

Thumbs up Re: B352 at Macatawa (Holland)

While we love to stop at South Haven, we grounded when entering a slip at the Muni Marina (museum side) last year in late June. Lake Michigan water levels were 17.4 inches lower, as of this March, than they were last June. I don't think we will be back there unless Lake Michigan recovers or South Haven does some dredging.

Lake Macatawa (Holland) is a deep water port with plenty of depth for a 352. We have stayed at Eldean's Marina and were quite happy with their facilities.

"Sailor Tim" at Anything Sailing Forum has a B361 at Eldean's Marina and he would be a good resource to answer any question you might have about the lake.

Are you the buyers of Wanderlust in Whitehall?

Good luck this season. We're crossing to Ludington this year and heading north in search of deeper water.

Re: 352

Hi Paul,

Yes, we are purchasing Wanderlust in Whitehall. The survey is this Friday and hopefully all will go smoothly. We are actually going to be in Milwaukee the weekend after next for the Midwest Women's Sailing Conference. We'd love to hear about your experiences with your boat if you and your wife have any interest in getting together. Shari

Re: 352

We've been sailing our '98 B-352 out of Rock Hall on the Chesapeake since the summer of "08. Mostly weekending & some 3 & 5 day trips each season. Very comfortable, performs well for a 35' cruiser & a pleasure to back up into a tight slip. We have the furling main which is a good choice for cruising. But note: a B-351 "Jeroboam" (with standard main) just placed first on elapsed & corrected time in class for the OSTAR race. So, if you have the standard main it can kick up its heels too.
Good luck with your choice!

Re: 352

Those of you with the 351/352 Beneteau, our plastic screens for the side cabin hatches are missing the plastic pieces that attach them to the hatch openings. Any idea wha they are called or maybe what the part numbers so we can replace them?
