Hey Ken,

So far Seaknots is spam free. I know that Beneteaus usually come with simple diagrams of all systems. I found one that reflects a 30ft boat.

I didn't see the key, but it at least shows the layout. I hope this helps!

No photos, but this site does have a simplified explaination of some basics.

I found a basic diagram here:

Hope it helps.
I am not sure if this will work but I am going to try and add a picture of one here.

Nice drawings. Can you ya or na the thought I have heard about taking a plate of metal, I have forgotten the type of metal, and put it in the ocean and connect the plate with a wire to the negative post of the 12volt battery to reduce electrolisis? Thanks.
