Gents,
been alerted by the various threads here in the forum I had a close look at quality control during my visit to the yard.  Having been in the leading automotive factory ( Porsche Leipzig ) before I must say that I was impressed about the efforts undertaken by Hanse to approach a perfect quality.
 
The diesel tank issue seems to have been solved, they have a new supplier and I saw a very solid flange.  All boats on the 32 - 44" ft assembly line are undergoing a " shower test " simulating a heavy tropical downpour in the middle of the line. Engine comes pretested in the boat and electric/electronics have a computer based test station like you have in a modern car.  Most vendors are now delivering pre assembled and pre tested kits. Of course Hanse is still using a lot of manual labor and "errare humanum est". Those who work are prone to errors, those who don't work are not ( they are mostly found in bureaucracies Smile ). They also listen to their customers, the electric panel at the nav station is now hingedThumbs Up

Absolutely Mark, they showed a great hospitality.
We were able to see the whole manufacturing process. Suggest you take a camera with you and take pictures of 385's in various building stages, this can be of tremendous help later if you need do install/deinstall equipment.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the update; how did everything go? Does the tank fit through the existing openings? Many work involved, or piece of cake? Hope all is solved now!

My dealer is not offering to replace the tank; can you inform me why your dealer decided to do so? This might help me in persuading mine.

Thanks!

Machiel.

In the 2 cabin version THE TANK DOES NOT FIT THRU THE OPENINGS!!! Broker brought new tank, don't know Hanse's reasoning on replacement versus repair. Our leak was partially caused by crack on top of sender,also had slight deformity at hole for sender. Replaced sender, of course sender for new tank does not fit old tank. Purchased generic sender at W Marine, installed with different gasket- hoping for no leak when topping off. Long term we hope to install new tank- probably have to modify cabin door! On 2 week cruise- the story continues.

Jon- my new email is mcpsr51@gmail.com. Could you send me yours off forum? BTW trying Intellicast wx for boaters app- so far looks really good. Also if you didn't install AIS- used Boat Beacon App yesterday in dense fog- was huge help in ID for radar targets!, all you need is good cell signal.
