yes.....circles around....by the way I typed bad I mean 1981 not 1991. Sorry.

You know something funny? After that series, Beneteau started making the F series, and your boat was replaced by what was then the 45F5...beautifull opening transom scoop, most were recalled in the 1995's due to osmosis problems, and Beneteau gave the customers with "sick" boats a newer larger one to compensate...I wonder if they would do that now...I sailed a F5 in Malta for 3 days, nice boat, but that was the begining of the end.

I see a lot of "sick" 45F5's for sale now...I wonder how many are the sick ones..

I dont know..but before even thinking about a Beneteau I looked at many boats, including C&C, Tartan, J boats, Newport, and many others. I was not looking for a Beneteau, actually I was trying to stay away from them until I began looking at the older ones. The first thing I noticed was the difference in how solid the decks of older B's felt. Until by pure coincidence I saw the Beneteau 456 and read a little about the design and how different it was from other Beneteaus so I ended up Buying this one.

I guess when it comes to buying used boats the most important thing is how well it was kept. I saw several C&C's, Tartans and J Boats of the same era and even newer that were left to the mercy of the elements for way to long. Most of those brands are better built but years of neglect will really make a lot of damage.
