Hi All

We are planning an extended cruise around the med for the next few years in our 2014 415.  Now is the time to upgrade or fix any weak points on the boat.  
What has broken and why on your 415s and what preventative upgrades should we consider?

We have a 415 of the same vintage and have been sailing it in the Med from new. We've broken very little so far. A well made Bimini would be top of my list. Tecsew made ours and we had flexible Solbian panels fitted to the top. We hardly ever take it down and it produces enough power to allow us to live on the hook. Water is the limiting factor even though we have the extra tank. We've broken a few blocks so have spares. Extra fenders too, including a couple of big balls for the transom for stern-to. We have found we need a passerelle but often use the drop down transom for lower docks and use a pulley system to hoist it out of harms way at night and when we are off the boat. You will see pictures if you search the forum. We've broken a couple of bow thruster prop blades on lazy lines so now carry a spare set. You might upgrade the anchor, we have a Rocna which sits on the ordinal roller ok . Upgrading the gennaker fitting is required if you have a downwind sail and is again shown on the forum. A polarity reverser is also needed. You can make this yourself. Many marinas have reverse polarity and the 415 electrics refuse to play with it. I think we use ours for at least 20% of the time.

Thanks for the reply. We are just getting a TecSew Bimini now with solar fitted so great minds 👍
The downwind sail will be a furlstrom and I had seen that the fitting needs updating Iíll see if I can find the thread for yours.
What size rocna did you fit? The sizing guide makes seems to sit between the 20 and 25Kg

Iíll look into thruster spares and additional spare blocks.

Thanks

Were getting ready to take ours offshore. Im doing the same thing myself. In terms of anchoring, im using 60m of 8mm chain and a 16kg Excel anchor, otherwise you'll have to adapt the fairlead to take a longer anchor shank.
 This weekend I reinforced the strips of wood that hold the mattress on the base in the forward cabin. They slowly start to bend and break off. I used L shaped brackets. I also added a strut to brace the end of the shelf in the aft cabin. That shelf was only good for holding air before.
Lots of other mods too but nothing much due to bad design or being breakage prone.

We fitted a 20kg Rocna to 60m of chain and 30m of rope. So far that has proved long enough.
