MKB53, thankyou. I am looking forward to the pictures! On the later Mahes they installed the FI50s from Furuno, so the setup seems to be different. Because I also want build in a radar which is not from Furuno, it seems that I have to dig a little deeper. I will report in one or two months, if somebody is interested.
The danger coming from rolled Gennakers in stronger winds seems to be an issue, two sailmakers told me, that the do not recommend roller systems for fuller cut asymetrics any more.

Cat Searching

I just joined the forum. I hope I am doing this right. I am currently looking for a LA Cat. I live near Annapolis Maryland and I have not seeing much in Cats this time of year. I have not seen any FP's with brokers I have contacted. I would like to see a FP Mahe for Logoon 380. Any Suggestions?

Hi Waverunner, welcome to this forum
Mahe 36 vs Lagoon 380:
Both have 77 square meter of sail, Mahe is officially 5000 kg, Lagoon is 7000 kg. Both will be a bit heavier really, the French like to understate weight.
I guess you will find back the difference in sailing performance, better for the Mahe, and room, better for the Lagoon. The Mahe is cheaper if you wait for the september special offer which is a set of extra's for a relatively small amount.
Sailing performance:
In our Mahe we have had a peak speed of 16.4 knots with spinnaker surfing down a wave (with calibrated log), sustained around 14 knots, and a 12 hour average of 10 knots. A Lagoon will not do this probably, the hulls are too wide. And then there is the question of looks, but that is personal.
Kind regards, good luck choosing,
Jef

Waverunner,

Both the Mahe 36 and the Lagoon 380 will be at the Miami boat show.
Willmar USA sells a lot of Mahes on the East Coast. I have been on both boats and you can tell the Lagoon is more of a charter boat and much heavier than the Mahe. The Lagoon 380 is roughly $100,000 more than the Mahe if you are looking at new ones. I really like both boats, but the Mahe 36 fit my budget.

Therapy, did you make it to the show? The Lavezzi at the show had a really nice bimini with side curtains. They also put a 2' wide fiberglass walkway near the centerline. PM me if you'll be around tomorrow. David

Scott,
Now I can contribute to the posts from a first hand perspective.
It will be nice to be touchy feely with the real boat.
Started a blog also www.sv-catatude.blogspot.com
Much to do in the next 38 days to get ready.
Thanks,
Mark

First post on this forum

Hello fellow FP cat lovers! Found this forum and Mahe thread a few days ago and read every post........man, has the work piled up!
Great information on specific systems, fixes, installations, etc. I appreciate the details on d-w sail options and rigging tips!
We're taking delivery of our Mahe, Normandie, in September in Annapolis as it will be part of the FP contingent for the 10/8 -10/12 boat show. Plan on sending her to the Bahamas for next season....can't wait!

Not sure if Scott (MaheMahe) checks this forum but would like to thank him for the use of his beautiful Mahe, Mistina, last Thanksgiving in the BVI....we took care of her like she was our own!

Regards,
Chuck
