Re: New to us yacht Beneteau 473

Interesting - thanks for the effort to post this - much appreciated. Ours is a G5 (fifth/last generation - 2012) Oceanis 50. The supporting structure is box section at the top of the tube, which looks very solid, so hopefully the weakness has been addressed, but when we get back on board next year, I will have a close look at it. In the meantime, if/when you get the chance to show your modification, I am sure I would not be the only one interested.

Join our owners group on YAHOO. Great group of folks. We have owned our 473 for 6 years. Cruising the gulf. Cuba and Mexico. Retiring next year and heading for the islands. It is a great boat. Congrats.
