Dear "Spineless in Seattle" (aka: LarryLevine) Read the posts, evaluate the technical merits, crawl around on your belly through this beast you''ve fallen in love with and make a decision man! Let me summarize this thread for you, underpowered rig, penalty for non in-mast furling, inferior hardware, iron keel, permanent list, springy floor, undersized windlass, cheap and flimsy cabin fittings and other hardware. This sounds like the prefect boat for you. I''m wondering, are you going to ask Jeff if you should wipe your ass after the next bowel movement?
My advise, take the equivalent amount money and buy a pre-owned, Tartan, J-Boat, Ericson, Pearson, Passport, Bristol, Sceptre, Frers, Dufour, Pacific Seacraft, Nordic or Dehler. Get a backbone man!

Man denr, you are something. Do you ever read what you write. If someone wrote to you what you write, you would be "blowing a gasket."

Christineb 10007:
You''re right, I am something else, want to go sailing this weekend? I''m a good sailor and have a great sense of humor. I''ll bring the cold beverages and you bring the sandwiches.
In answer to your question I always proof what I write and do a smell check every post!

Have read comments, but has anyone actually sailed or been aboard one of these boats?

Lots of theoretical things said, but looking for practical information.

Check the beneteau e-mail list on Sailnet. There is an active discussion ongoing on the list now concerning the 393.
