Re: Lagoon's Big Bimini + enclosure sufficient?

I think the small hatch at the galley is meant. This is not standard, but can be ordered when you buy a new boat.

"I'm not sure I know what port light you are referring to."

Also your Boom Main sail bag looks smaller and way neater than mine, is that original or a custom job.

Re: Lagoon's Big Bimini + enclosure sufficient?

HI
I've attached some photos and a video of the Dedicated Marine Forward & Full Enclosures. We also manufacture the stairway coverage. More examples can be found at Dedicated Marine CUSTOM SERVICES - Dedicated Marine

The Enclosures consist of Sunbrella fabric (client color choice) and an aft phifertex screen is added for the Full Enclosure. Thanks - hope this helps!

Re: Lagoon's Big Bimini + enclosure sufficient?

PaulinOz, that is a galley hatch window that came with the boat. I don't recall it being a checklist option. I never realized all L450's didn't have it.

The sail bag was an after market purchase. I was tipped off early the sail bag that Lagoon provides at purchase would not have a long life. Since we took delivery in Les Sables d'Olonne we had it done there.

Sorry for the delayed response but we were out of internet range recently.

If we are talking about the same thing, a connection between the base of the mast and boom to hold the boom down, like a lot of cats it is not fitted or required on L450. 6 plus meter wide main sheet track does the job of pulling the boom down when off the wind.

"While you are thinking about keeping the cockpit dry, try to find a way to divert water from entering the open front windows."

Water ingress through front windows is a simple as a bit of plastic angel to give the water a drip point onto the windows, this stops it tracking down and into the windows.

Hi,

The front ports on our 2016 open in, not out...

Re: Lagoon's Big Bimini + enclosure sufficient?

To the OP question about keeping rain out of the cockpit, we had custom curtains / enclosures made for just that purpose. We had the full enclosure on our first 450 and never used it. If you will be at anchor or on a mooring the rain will be coming from the bow so the full sides and back just keep the breeze out.

Neither of the factory Biminis cover this area and the Dedicated Marine hard top doesn't either. We have not decided to have an enclosure for our hardtop made yet but we went with a much larger Bimini than what Dedicated Marine would offer so that we can fully enclose the stairs leading up to the fly ridge. Additionally, we wanted to be able to reach the aft end of the sail bag while standing on the hardtop, which you can't do from the small hardtop. If you are interested, you can see our custom hardtop and side enclosures on our FaceBook page to S/V Cruisin' Rhumb.

We also have custom front and back awnings. The front keeps the rain out of the forward hatches and the aft keeps the sun out of the cockpit.

Cats like the 450 don't use a boom-vang. (Unless you have in-boom furler).

Reaching to Broad reach, can control it with the Traveller. For further down-wind however I also put in a Preventer from the end of the boom fwd to a snatch block on a cleat and back to the helm.

Accidental Gybes scare me... So I generally set the preventer anytime wind is aft of about 110 apparent or so.

Regards

Mark.
