off web. Anybody actually weigh one and with what level of equipment
4. Were all the 42s TPIs?
5. Anything else? Did I miss something? Something to look out for?
I researched the other threads and found good information but not these specifics. BOB
I have a Lagoon
42 TPI (formerly known as Ushuaia) known as Departure. I have a 10 foot Highfield dinghy
with 15hp Yamaha 2-stroke. I have 2" clearance above the motor head
under the bridgedeck. I have to duck, but backed into a marina slip, I have no problems lowering my dinghy
and pulling myself under the boat. I usually start it on the other side. But when I come back I just kill the engine
coming up to the tramps and float into the dock
. Lol. Never heard a slap except for some really rough cross waves.
