Storage

Storage is definitely an issue, our B323 has very little of it. Some people have been very creative about it, I know a B323 owner who has routered out holes in the aft cabin and found lots of nooks and crannies for storage. Bene also sells extra cabinets that can be places near the forward bulkheads to add storage. Unfortunately its a trade off, and a lot of people want more room, and less storage. I am not sure its the wisest trade off. Very common on mid-size production cruisers though.

Beneteaus and keel bolts?

I am looking at a 381, 1999.
The survey came in quite well with the exception about the keel bolts.

Is this common and what is the best remedy?

What is wrong with the keel bolts?? That sends up a warning flag to me. You might want to start a new thread in Buying Boats Forum and raise it to the attention of some others. I don't like it.

That no sound good. Exactly what did he say about the keel bolts? That's the kind of thing you would hope not to hear. It may be nothing, but it certainly is not an area you want to come up on the survey.

Common issue with a survey.. not bennie specific.

Didn't mean to suggest it was Bennie specific. It might not be a big deal if the comment is they need to be torqued or something similar, but depending on the comment from the surveyor, it may not be the kind of area I would want to show up.

Only Mayday Ive ever heard at sea. Off East Australian coast sailing south into 30 knots and 2m seas- punching along pretty comfortably given conditions when received call- It was a 50' Beneteau sailing south in same conditions and had apparently fallen off a wave and split side - this only % miles out so local Coastal Patrol soon came to the rescue and took the crew off but under tow water rushed to the bow and the yacht sank

Since I have on of those... What do you mean by "fallen off a wave and split side"?

Please provide additional details on the foregoing and particularly the approximate date. I am surprised that no such incident has been reported in the Coastal Patrol's publication, Beam Ends, or on its web-site tho' such an event would seem to have been a major story, no?
