Remarks  IRC Optimization Modifications include -

1. Keel Shoe Fitted - Only the first few 44.7s in Australia had the 2.64m Draft as shown in the Brochures. Thereafter, Beneteau supplied the 44.7s with approx 100mm shorter keels. Subsequently, racingŁ 44.7s had a 100mm x 100Kg Keel Shoe fitted to return the boat to it's original Farr Design.
This Keel Shoe gave the advantage of having another 100Kg AT THE BOTTOM of the keel (equivalent to 3-4 extra rail crew) with no IRC penalty. Keel Shoe was fitted in 2009

2. Extended Spinnaker pole with up-graded beak - The spinnaker pole was extended to match the Ian Short manufactured fuller masthead spinnakers and the beak was changed to a more substantial unit

3. Main Halyard doubled - 44.7s are is supplied with a single main halyard. Under stress the halyard tends to slip in the clutches. The doubling of the halyard halves the load on the clutch and stops this frustrating problem.

4. Doubling up of cars and applying 16:1 adjustment. The 44.7 is supplied with one car each side and a single sheet back into the cockpit. The single car makes sail changes more awkward and the single sheet can only adjust the cars by using the winch when they are under load. The 16:1 adjustment allows critical trimming car adjustments to be made by hand.

5. Cunningham Adjustment - Normal Cunningham adjustment on 44.7s is made at the mast and can be difficult to gain the purchase require at this point with such a thin sheet. Cunningham adjustment back in the cockpit through a cabin top clutch making the adjustment easier, safer and with the local cabin top winch on hand if needed

6. Normal Reefing on supplied 44.7s is at the mast and can be difficult in poor weather. Luff reefing line down the port side through a clutch into the cockpit and a foot reefing line down the starboard side through a clutch to the cockpit. Hence, the first reef can be put in from the cockpit with independent tension at the mast/luff reefing point and leech reefing point

7. Additional pad eyes have been fitted to allow the Spinnaker Sheets to come backŁ on themselves and reach the cabin top winches on the same side. Otherwise, the sheets have to cross the cockpit to the opposite cabin top winch making Spinnaker gybing more difficult as the starboard spinnaker sheet is on the port side cabin top winch and vice versa

8. Vang cleats have been moved and upgraded to swivel cleats to enable the rail crew to hold and operate the vang from their rail position

Owner will consider trade or half-share purchase.
