That pic looks rather familiar!?!

FWIW tho, we'd suggest rotating the panels 90 degrees, so the narrow ends face fore and aft...leaves room for more panels and provides greater shade below...

Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

"It seems that nobody installs any panels immediately aft of the fly bridge on the lagoon 450. I suppose that there is a good reason for this."

The simple answer is there is no room, look at Roetter's pictures above.The port side has the large opening hatch and the starboard side has the main sheet, the traveler control lines and head sail furler line. There is no room at the inn.



The across the aft set up also has the advantage of creating shade and weather protection across the aft walkway, as well as a good place to put your fishing rod rack. I have also attached two roll up shade blinds to the solar panel frame that drop down to the aft life lines and give shade across the aft area when required.

Looking b----y terrific Paul!

Really like the idea of roll-up shade blinds too; any pics of those?

Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

Hey Don, all good up here in Cairns at present.

Was quoted over $600 AUD by a sail maker to make a pair of shades for the back. These are 70% garden roller shades from Bunnings, less than $100 each on sale and have been in use for 2 1/2 years and working well. Added some shot chord to hold them down to deck, from memory we cut about a meter off because did not need them that long. Just starting to see some corrosion on the metal poles at the bottom of blind, if it becomes an issue will replace with wooden pole.

The new layout is simply not the one I am looking for (kitchen to big, no real charttable, less space). I need a real charttable as the one in the previous versions of the L450.

My dealer told me that a modification could be possible if I find a company which is "allowed" to buy original wood parts from the Lagoon factory. Unfortunately I did not find any neither did my dealer.

A few years ago user Kinch posted those great photos showing a modification of the interior with the original woods (page 2).

Maybe someone knows a company that could do this work for me.

Thank you very much!
