Mike Brown replied to Jochen Vetterlein's discussion O43: Good tracking on starboard side - poor on port side in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"

"Hello Mike, Thank you for your rapid reply!  I'm happy to hear that obviously not all Oceanis 43 have this strange behavior of unequal tracking performance starboard/port. The behavior on my boat is not only slightly. It is visible on the…"

"I had a 2008 for 10 years and while there could be slight differences in speed between a port and starboard tack I did not see a consistent difference like you mentioned. I do sail a Catalina 425 on a regular basis that initially carried a large…"

O43: Good tracking on starboard side - poor on port side

Hello everybody,I'm an owner of a Oceanis 43 since 2018. I'm really happy with the boat - except with the following situation:Tracking on the port side is, let's say: poor. Even in ideal wind conditions (12-16 kn wind) the speed is only 5 to 5.5 knots. If there are some waves, you have the feeling, that the boat has not enough power to push through.On the starboard side, everything is fine: The speed is 1 to 1.5 knots higher, even at higher tracking angles. I have this phenomenon since sailing…See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
