Re: Letís talk about where our Lagoons have taken us.

Sheís taken us all up & down the Eastern Caribbean islands from the BVIís to Grenada.

Sorry no pic to post but Google a view of Admiralty Bay in Bequia from Peggyís Rock and we are currently anchored off Princess Margaret beach.

Pickersgill Harbour, Fiordland, New Zealand. Captain Cook tied up in this exact spot 240 years earlier to observe the transit of Venus.

Nice photo, Dave.

BTW, Lt. James Cook also compared his vessel to the catamarans of the Maori, and noted their superior sailing ability. Something many modern monohull sailors still don't appreciate. I'm sure Cookie would have loved your Lagoon 450.

I am sure he would take L 400 anyday against his wooden mono. And observe how wonderful, fast and joyful sailing can be with all his posessions on board.

Yeah, but he'd probably would have had to rid himself of some of Endeavour's compliment of 94 and chucked some of the ten 4 pound cannon. Unless he traded up to a L620!

Trouble with your L620 option is that he would not even bother going ashore much and would eventually lose the funding of investors, if he bothered to return to UK at all.

Regardless, thanks to these early pioneers, we can today enjoy real sailing in crafts that have proven most successful in human colonization history.
