1985 Beneteau 38 first.

Have a question for any of you owning one of these older ones. I’m looking at a purchase of one that was well taken care of. I’ve looked over a few things and not familiar with these Bénéteaus. What is the best way to get in to the transmission end of things. I know theres the 2 side panels in the 2 rooms that will open up to get at the sides of the engine but what about the transmission end. Didnt really see a way into that unless i missed it somewhere.

I've never owned one, but:
Doesn’t she have a “removable cockpit sole”?
