Twixter for sale!

Having visited the this vessels website many times for great information on the 440, I was surprised to see it for sale on this Australian site. I notice however the vessel is actually in Portugal. All good things come to pass....

Used 2006 LAGOON 440 Boat For Sale - boatpoint.com.au

2Wind,

Glad you like the website. My husband worked hard to get some good information up on our site, though the log is a bit behind He is also very active on the Lagoon Yahoo group.

How long have you had Second Wind?

We wish Twixter well, hoping the site remains when the boat sells it's a trove of information for all..

Cheers Frank

Cathy, I'm in the second year of ownership. When I was new to the boat, your website was a very frequent port of call for me. The work that went into it was clearly very substantial and it has proved to be an invaluable to me in particular, but I'm sure to a host of others. Commendations and thanks you and your husband.
I too hope your sale progresseswell to completion soon. By all appearances, Twixter is a fine vessel.

Malcolm.

Thanks

We haven't re-varnished any interior wood yet. The running rails are left alone. A woodworker told us just to wash them with laundry detergent and a plastic scrub pad. He said that teak oil will make the wood soak up the pollution in the air.

Re: Twixter for sale!

Hi Rob & Cathy, How did your sale go? We will be selling Music this year. Hope to be going for a catamaran. We need a boat that doesn't travel as much, more space and no more heeling. I'm looking for about a 44' or maybe a newer , smaller version. Maybe Nauiteck 40'?? Get in touch, let us know how your doing. Music is now docked in Guadalope. We go back this month, Steve & Eva (kedi200709@yahoo.com)
