Lagoon 380 Falling Dry

We got a Lagoon 380 , bj. 2004.

Has somebody experience with letting the yacht falling dry ?
Is it save to let the boat rest on the kiel and the rudder ? or is it better to plan for supporting stelts ?
Is it likly that the yacht can tip forward ?

Re: Lagoon 380 Falling Dry

By falling dry I take it you mean 'drying out' or putting it on a mud or sandbank abd letting the tide go out.

Yes, all lagoons are designed to do this and no, its wont tip forward as the center of gravity is towards the rear and the keels are pretty flat anyway.

Re: Lagoon 380 Falling Dry

Thank you Simon. Yes I meant 'drying out' when the tide goes out.

So I will not need to worry letting the boat sitting on kiel and rudder.

This was a real fast reply.

No, so long as the surface is soft, mud/sand etc. so that the load is spread evenly, it'll be fine. I happen to know a couple who have done this many times with their 380 in Portugal.
