Re: 2003 Oceanis 50 owners manual

Papaiasi,

Sorry, I don't have that manual. (Congratualions, nice boat!)

Did you try calling Beneteau? Also try Beneteau USA, since they are very helpful.

Regards,
Brad

Re: 2003 Oceanis 50 owners manual

Brad, i know this is a long shot but do you happen to have the manual for a 2010 OCEANIS 50 European version?

(Thanks Malcome, I figured they were needed, but not sure why, since they travel through a gap that is at the bottom of the aft bulkhead where the air would have flowed in anyway.)

Mike,

The big hoses go up near the holes in the "transom". So they are sucking some outside air. There is no blower on those, but there is a blower on a separate 3" diameter hose. I figure that there's enough air being consumed by the diesel that it's constantly sucking new/cool air into the engine compartment.

I haven't figured out how to turn the 3" blower on yet.


Also haven't figured out what the button is for, top center of the engine controls. It's click-on, click-off. Here's a picture, it's to the right of the battery light.


And a view behind the panel

Malco123 Hi Brad,

Yes I also have these pipes on my boat.
The two 8'' pipes are for air ventilation to the engine compartment, and should be retained.

Malcolm,

Thanks. The real stars are Todd and Ward and the rest of the team at Beneteau USA (+1-843-629-53000). I sometimes call them for even the smallest part and they ship it out right away. (Last week it was for new door latches -- it turned out that the latch plate needed to be adjusted and that I didn't really need any new latches.) They also have ready-to-send documents on things like inspecting keel bolts.

Since we have the same boat -- and I never met the previous owner of mine -- let me ask you a question. Do you have 2 large diameter (about 8 inch) hoses going from the "steering quadrant room" to your engine? We have them and I wonder if they really serve any purpose.

Regards,
Brad

Bene505 Malcom,

Beneteau is asking for your hull number. They think you are talking about a Moorings version of a Beneteau 50, so they sent me the manual for that. I put it on a link. Click here for it. (You could also right click and use "Save As".) It's 1.67 meg in size.

If that's not the right manual, then send me your hull number and we'll go from there.

Regards,
Brad
