I have to replace my pitted drive shaft and I am trying to find out a few details..

Does anyone know who made the original drive shaft (non sail-drive) for a Beneteau 40/2009

Or is there is a company online that makes replacement shafts?

I seem to remember it was Vetus? and I see they sell shafts that are similar but not quite the same as the original.

Or does anyone have access to the engineering diagrams for a Beneteau 40 drive shaft ?

The engineering firm I will to use to machine a new shaft want to see the engineering diagrams before they have a go at machining up the shaft.

Many thanks if anyone can help out with any information!
