i have been on this boat since the incident.there is no design problem with the lagoon
.it was bought brand new for around 650 000 euro and delivered to the foreign owner in phuket by 3 foreigners where it was then turned over to a local captain
.he was moving it a couple of miles to another location on the island and the dinghy rope
which was non floating and very thick ( i think 25mm !!! ) wrapped around a sail drive.it started to take on water
so he beached it on low tide.as the tide came in the hull
continued to fill.he made more mistakes
(details i cant remember) and water
got into the other hull
.both engines were lost
and the damage was contained mainly to the rear of both pontoons.it did not sink and the last time i seen it, it was in a marina being repaired under insurance
,in fact i think it has been completed.
what a magnificent vessel by the way.sitting up on that fly bridge you feel like king of the world !
the guys who delivered her are very experienced and said they hit some massive seas and she just rode
