With that said I was thinking that the summer tan I will get this summer will stick around.
We sail south to Mexico in August.
The boat feels like home.

come on, do more videos, sailing preferred. You have time while other half working = classic, my wife says. This sign up thing, one never knows if signing away life so rather do not do it.

This avoids damage if the dock is not 'harmless' e.g. it is a concrete pier or similar.
Round fender does not help much as it tends to roll away, but may be used hanging in a horizontal position (two lines)

Hi Scottster,
Thanks for your posts on your experiences with your Lagoon. Enjoying your YouTube channel as well.

Currently negotiating the purchase of a 2013 L400S2.
I have followed your posts regarding your solar set-up inspired by Roetter. It looks like a great setup, and seriously considering the same or similar gear as this L400S2 has 400W total over the davits, and no generator installed.
Couple of questions - in your videos, you step out onto the side decks and it appears that you have plenty of head room from the corners/grab handles of the panels. I'm 6'4" and concerned with clearance. What is the clearance at the corners? It looks like 7' or so anywhere on the back deck.
Anything you would change now that you have had the gear in place for a few months?
Many thanks,
Matt

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Hey Matt
Height is not a problem, the panels end inside the space of the roof.
You could cut the corner and smack your head but it would mean not taking the steps down and the natural flow is not near the panels.
Your left hand can reach so that's why I installed the hand hold.
These pictures should give a more realistic sense for the space.
If you require prints on the mount Rolf designed I have it and have forwarded to 2 others, it is a solid install.
Further the system is working very well, no more worries about power.

Welcome to the forum, Matt.
We will be back in Manly (Brizzo) in a few days. Our L400 has a very similar solar array, so PM me if you wish to check out this option. Cheers

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Hey Scott,
It looks like plenty of clearance at the corners. Quick response and pictures more than I expected. Thanks!


Hi Tuskie,
We would enjoy a chance to see your L400 and solar setup. I'll send a PM.


Thanks again,
Matt
p.s. Looking forward to having a Lagoon to love.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Here is my location for the washing machine.
The microwave is removed and the Miele is in.
One of the best things we have added.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

The Miele is a wonderful machine, we can be in the salon while it is doing its thing and it is incredibly quite.
When it spins it revs up to 1300 rpm and the clothes come out almost dry.
The negative on the Miele is weight, she is one heavy unit.
After having onboard for 6 months would I change anything?
Not a hope in hell. We love our choice and would do it all over again,
Cheers
Scott

Re: Love my Lagoon!

We are for sure fitting a washing machine.
BUT, If I suggested putting it the Salon, I think my wife would shoot me !

Love your solar installation Scottster. Thinking of pretty much the same/similar on a L42. Something between what you did, or what PaulinOZ did with the double run.

If you have dimensions / design for it, would love to take a look.

Thanks & Regards

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Surprise! On the new 450S & F, Lagoon or their mast supplier, have reduced from two to one main shrouds. All 450s prior to the new S&F models have both a 16mm and 12mm shroud from the chainplates to the approx up the mast and way up, respectively. Besides offering mast stability, two also aides to define the vertical arc/bend needed for the spar. And this with no change in the sail area. Im curious how they can achieve mast strength, stability and shape with a single shroud. Obviously it would have passed design verifications while offering weight and cost reductions. To me it seems a minimal design approach - just enough to meet requirements and no more.
