Re: Love my Lagoon!

I love my lagoon because I lost 10 kilos maintaining it and is all done with joy.

win/win


ps: i also lost 10 to 15 points of blood pressure upper and lover each. Only that already pays for the boat. just imagine expenses going to hospital, artificial hart, whatever etc, etc.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

I installed an 18" HD radar dome on my 400s2.
I had a problem with getting the factory multifunction display to play with the rest of the system, after much investigation I narrowed my problem down to the factory cable from the display to the sea talk.
I picked up a spare cable and bypassed the factory cable.
It worked like a charm.
Immediately I called my dealer and informed him of my discovery and that day a warrantee claim was made.
Nice to have support, not that I needed it nor was it asked for but a very class act form everyone from my dealer clear thru to Lagoon as well.
Thanks Scott

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Great outcome Scottster, sounds like your local dealer is way above average.

I've got to run a mobile data cable from an antenna on the mast into the nav station. A fellow L400 owner has warned me of the difficulty of getting cables through the internal conduits at the base of the mast. These lead through the mast compression post but are sealed and difficult to penetrate. Not sure what the sealant is, Lagoon expanding foam? The inspection plate just above the mast base is quite small so doesn't allow a cable feeder rod or PVC conduit to be inserted. Going up from the bottom of the mast compression post seems the only option, but it's difficult to locate the conduits from a distance. I don't wish to damage any existing cables nor removed the mast so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Can you use one of the existing cables to pull in a date cable, as well as a replacement cable and spare draw wire for next time?

Good idea. Thanks! I'll try to pull through a draw wire first if I can withdraw an existing cable. Don't want to run a data cable down inside the mast and then find that's as far as it can go.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Or possibly wireless?

Also, if it's ethernet your talking about, 1 cable can do 2 outlets just get a break out box you only need 2 pairs for Ethernet unless going gigabit speed which is unlikely.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

I had to install the radar cable 2 weeks ago.
The cable has the connector installed.
For the record I am an electrician, I have pulled wire for a living, ( no dirty comments please)
The install took me 8 hrs, in the real world it should have taken no more than 1 hr.
The problem is the transition from the mast to the compression post.
Also note that my friends 400 hull #46 is totally different that my 400s2 hull #315.
The older boat is much more strait forward, I tried to used his for some insight and none to be had.
That being said my boat has a mast conduit and 2 conduits in the boat proper, the problem is that they do not align and the access port on the mast is way to small, if there is no pull string start there.
A electricians fish tape is needed, remember to use gravity to aid the process.
The other great aid is wire lube, available at Home Depot. Get the silicone clear stuff it cleans up better.
Pull the wire out at the base inspection port and create a loop, make the base of the mast your Center work area.
If there is a loop there no big deal,
Take your time, be patient, if it is not going well walk away and try again later.
I had a very hard time getting the cable in.
Another great motivator is your install has been done by hundreds of others and your will win.
One more tip, do not force it, you could damage existing cables.
Good luck hope this helps.
Don't forget to pull a replacement string for your next time pulling a cable.

Scott

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.

May I ask how you get your 89 year old father on board? My father is 89 as well and I would love to take him, but can't figure out how to get him on and off the boat?

Re: Love my Lagoon!

First if all, my dad can walk for about 10 steps.
That said, I moor in a slip with my stern into the dock, I purchased a ramp at the geriatric appliance store in our home town that is 6'. We enter from the starboard sugar scoop and the extra hand rails start right there.
I have installed hand holds everywhere and I assist with my arms when needed.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Ah I see. Is it the lagoon stainless frame or was that custom made as well?

That's not quite correct. The new L39 is only 56' 10".

I get conflicting data on the older L42. One site says 57', another says 64', and a listing says it is 61'6" so it might be ICW friendly after you put your stuff in it.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Monte,
The frame is custom as well.
The workmanship is much better than factory.
There is room for improvement and it took forever.
The owner of the company that installed it is a downright liar.
I ended up with finishing the job myself.
5 months later it was complete.

Not sure what is correct? The Catamaran Company adds say the Lagoon 39
mast is 64'. 56'-10", plus the boat height comes close to 64'. Maybe a 39 owner could tell us for sure.
