I didn't know that Beneteau got its rudders from Novis Marine.

My bad...fumble fingers:
The Benny documentation lists
BEY22218A000
Ship Builder: * Year Built: *


Length (ft.): 39.3
so I don't know what exact model it was...just not the 44 footer as reported.

As to the J40....it was indeed a J80 in a race on LIS and there is a thread on SA about it for anyone interested in more details here:

Though that article at least makes no mention of losing the rudder. It just states that "a crack or hole near the rudder was the suspected cause." Which could mean any number of things.

I just read a post from the boat owner's Son Jimmy on SA. It was a 40.7 and the rudder post snapped off. It took an hour for the boat to sink. All hands were safe. Due to wave action they couldn't tow the boat and had to let her sink.

not to hijack this thread----but---- it seems like every time I go to
SA it reminds me why I come here


I dont think the A in SA stands for anarchy

I somehow doubt the flamers over there would be so tough if the posters were in the same room, but from the safety of their keyboard they are badasses----hehe

lowtide...would a F.O.N. make you feel more comfortable over here?
I agree...but I do enjoy Fridays!

I like SA....and I speak really foul language there....but I will never tell anyone who I am,...

So I can tell all the Aholes to lick my scrotum....

SA has helped me learn how to verbally defend myself in English

The rudder stock on my boat is in a separate compartment, and even if it floods, it won't fill the rest of the boat with water. I don't know why monohulls don't do this...especially when they have a big weight wanting to drag them down under the sea...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

How is this possible? I mean really......

I am not familiar with the boat at all, but how big does a rubber on a boat have to be to snap and create a hole to let enough water in an hour to flood and sink a boat.

Was the owner on the boat? They had six people on the boat. Couldn't they figure out a technique to slow the egress of water in to a point that the bilge pump to somewhat keep up? I mean if it was me and my boat. I'd sure as hell would find something to stuff into the hole to help slow the inflow of water.

The displacement on the boat is about 15,500 lbs and it has a keel about 5500 lbs, 10,000 lbs is displaced water weight (roughly). Let say it takes 3500 of additional weight to sink her, that is roughly 400 gallons of sea water, 400/60 is a little under 7 gallons a minute, which is not that big of a hole, I can't see how that could not be partially plugged to reduce the water flow. What happend to the bilge pumps. Are not most bilge pumps set up to handle much more than 7 gallons a minute?

I don't see how this could happen with a competent owner/caption on board.
