So after many months of searching for the 'perfect' boat, (having already thought i'd found it in a beautiful trimaran
that i was later told by the boss was far too spartan for her tastes), we're trying to find a happy medium that'll get me out on the water
in something bluewater capable for me, comfortable for her. My question: she's been quite taken by the lagoon 380
and im not looking to open a debate on the practicality of it as an ocean crossing liveaboard
, as that matter has been covered in great detail already, but rather that when chatting with an old salt
recently who'd done some serious miles in one, he put forth idea of possibly extending the hull
transoms by say perhaps 2 feet, much the same as what what manta
and more specifically the seawinds models had done. Would this not increase the load carrying capabilities, motion and overall speed? Would it be worthwhile?
