Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

Here is our install of the Brownie Dive Compressor on our Lagoon 450. I was going to put it behind the stbd engine but it was too tight of a fit. I did decide to put a storage shelf in there to make up for the loss of storage u see the aft cockpit daybed.
With some minor modifications, lowering the box and cutting in a starboard shelf, the use of space under the daybed is much more efficient. The compressor fits great and will be easy to access and maintain. The wiring run was super easy and short.

Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

Kevin,
Very interesting install. I'm planning on putting in a similar dive compressor in to my 450. I was planning on putting it in the port forward lazarette (opposite the generator). It will be an electric, so the thought was that the cables to the cables to the generator will be short. I hope to also keep the scuba tanks in there with a tank rack.

Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

I also put my electric Bauer dive compressor at the cockpit daybed storage area of my ex-L450. The wire run to the salon electrical panel is very short. The compressor needs to be easily accessible so that you can drain the water from the filter. Was that every 10 minutes (if I remember correctly)?

I had my water maker at the Port bow storage and it was a pain to access. I wouldn't put the compressor there as you'll be going in and out constantly to drain the water. Also, on my boat, this storage area was always damp and slippery.

Whatever you do, buy LOTS of filters...
I'm installing a Bauer JR electric compressor on my next boat too.

Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

I've been working with Max-Air compressors out of Texas and they have a fully automatic electric with auto dump valves for the water drains as well as auto off. That's why I was considering the port forward lazarette, as I just need to connect the fill whip to the tanks and it's a push button start/stop from the salon.

I understand. I am just passing on my experience with the port storage area. I had my water maker and stored my extra propane tanks there.

I had put non-slip strips on the slanted area of the floor and it was still very slippery. I am fairly fit and athletic but I managed to slip few times... Maybe, some steps would help.

Finally, I never figured out if that area had a drain.

Check your dimensions. I believe the Brownie that I have is one of the smallest packages. I donít think it would fit in there. I made a cardboard mock up. Initially I wanted to put it in the sugar scoop aft of the stbd engine. I wouldíve fit but very tight and tough to get to. After a lot of thought, this was definitely the best spot. Itís a great product so far, easy to use and maintain.Click image for larger version

Re: Lagoon 450 Modifications

Yesterdayís project was new Flexiteak in the fwd cockpit. Will be much easier to clean and it will drain better. Plus it matches the rest of the Flexiteak on the aft deck and Flybridge. Virtually zero maintenance, light, does not get hot. Can even be sanded and power washed (lightly of course) if it does get a stain, which it doesnít seem to do.Click image for larger version

I fully agree. Only took 5 minutes to run the 10/3 wire. Added a breaker above my custom panel. The soft start fits in perfectly, and there is even room to store the regulators. I had Brownie make me a 12 foot high pressure hose before the Y adapter to the yokes, so the tanks can be easily filled.
