Carrie Lou is now up for sale in Texas (on Lake Travis, I think) - a pretty good price too!

She is the US-made boat with the highest hull number in our directory (#445), making her the 'newest' US F235 we have a record for. According to BeneteauUSA, F235 construction stopped at hull #451.

No trailer and she has the later head arrangement sans nav station as seen on Griff's boat (ditto for later style cabin stripes, too). Also, this confirms the absence of the cockpit bailer in the last series.

Check out the galley stove and the hatch boards.

Did Beneteau make the polycarbonate hatch boards for the last few boats?

My boat didn't have polycarbonate hatch boards when I bought it and there are pictures on the site of my boat with my current starboard hatch boards and the previous owner's wooden ones. I don't think this was a Beneteau option but I like the no maintenance aspect of lexan even though it dosen't look quite as warm as the original wood.

I like the low maintenance part but I also would like to be able to see out somewhat to make anchor drag checks a little easier.

I'm having a mental block on 'cockpit bailer' - whazzaaat?
Also, I'm not sure I've seen a marine head in this location before - only a porta-pottie: anyone else got a marine head in this location??

Ummm.... Neil-O, ye olde GRIFF has the same marine head as mentioned in my post above. It's pictured in the forum in a dedicated thread, the same one we all posted in discussing the absence of the bailer/pump location on the cockpit wall. You're in the thread as well, ya Kiwi Loon! heh...

See pics and posts here:

Below is what hull #440 has (and the same as I saw on another Lake Lanier 1992 F235 when I was shopping) - must have been either an owner preference or a dealer preference - or maybe only the very latest F235 had the porta-pottie. I'll poll the members...

Neil, that wouldnt be right as some LATER boats had the fixed head (ie as seen in this very thread). It was more than likely an OWNER preference at order (done by factory) as a few of these later PP boats DONT HAVE THRU HULLS for the out which would point to the factory not installing a marine head for these (of course, more than a few owners in earlier boats have ditched the heads in favor of the PP for various reasons).

EDIT: you're probably right in that this probably became an option in later boats. Pehaps the latest boats came standard with the PP and no thruhull unless you ordered the marine head.... I wonder if the last of the F235 series was by request only - ie in early 92? Seems the last F235 had some interesting variations.
