Re: Love my Lagoon!

I now have big LED spots mounted to light the way, I also will run both engines in the dark to facilitate a effective reverse.

Luck and or a strong boat?
Whew! I hope that you don't repeat that again. Semi submerged objects are almost impossible to see at night, I'm not sure whether the spotlights will assist as they will impair your night vision outside their beam.

It's nice to know that the boat withstood the impact.

The fact that your Lagoon didn't break into a million pieces and sink in seconds will no doubt come as a bitter disappointment to the team of dedicated Lagoon Bashers who troll this forum! Such a pity.

I bet if it was a HUNTER, it would've sunk in about 5 minutes.....and only AFTER the fender washer backed bow cleats ripped off! ( racing for cover)

Great news isn't it?...thinking "holy crap, how much is THIS gonna cost" then to find out you're just fine.

Maybe I should rethink the Lagoon.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

We traveled the Erie Canal this summer and it was full of large tree trunks that had ended up in the water from flooding in the spring

We did well avoiding them...but there was one we missed and slammed into.

Same deal... "Check for damage!"

Aside from missing a little bottom paint, all was well!

Our previous boats were much older, so I wasn't sure if this is common on all newer boats, or just great attention to detail on lagoons.
A question: The conduit is leading the electric wires. But the halyards are free. Am I correct?

Re: Love my Lagoon!

This past week my 400S2 was in the Vancouver Boat Show, we met many people as they looked over our boat, some dreaming some ready to purchase.
It was very interesting to hear what was important to them, most recognized the advantages of Catamaran cruising, most
Importantly they were aware of the disadvantages. My take on our experience was how well informed the buyers are today.
Our boat was a popular one in the show due to being the only Catamaran, that being said she showed well and most everyone was respectful that S/V Muskoka was there to show not to purchase, one exception was the person who left me a present in the port toilet, yup should have locked down the seats, can you believe it?
I purchased Muskoka from Scott McDonald of Frazer Yachts in Vancouver and I must say the relationship has been very positive, they are a class act, further I got to spend time with the Lagoon sales rep for North America and his knowledge was very welcome indeed. If I had a problem Lagoon was there for me and promptly dealt with the issue, I have had nothing major but the minor stuff was dealt with within days. Thank you for your support.
So today's positive Lagoon moment has nothing to do with the boat itself but the support I have had since the cheque cleared.
Someone said during the show, " there is a reason Lagoon is number one in sales" that person was me and although no boat is perfect Lagoon seems to understand how to deliver a solid reliable boat.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

We've had our L380 for over ten years now and have nothing negative to say about Lagoon. It's the Toyota of Catamarans. Would love to have an L400, but it's mast violates the IntraCoastal Waterway Bridge heights. As do all other Lagoons, except the L380.

Everything on the boat is well made, well thought out and reliable. If it sunk tomorrow, I would buy another one. Although I dream about doing 20 knots on a Gunboat for 4 times the money, at least our masts don't break.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

If you were ever wondering how the head liner of a Lagoon is made take a look.
The panels are interlocked and multiple screws make for a solid, accessible, clean install.
It takes some time to remove but a repair would be simple.
I had to replace a head liner on my past boat and this system would have saved me time and money.Click image for larger version

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Today in the Pacific Northwest is is raining and a bit on the cool side. ( 10*c )
I have the factory hydronic heat on, swinging on my Rocna, my 89 year old father by my side.
We are very comfortable, reading, chatting about loved ones long since gone.
We are independent of the world around us for just a short time but a cherished time indeed,
Not to say other boats cannot have the same impact but I own a Lagoon.
Everything is in order and we are enjoying life.
The reason for this " I Love My Lagoon" post is simply this.
A good design can make the above a reality.
