So who knows?
Hello Garold, just for the benifit of the thread I have attached a pic of my step, I did a series of pics of my other mods on our Lagoon 400
thread some time ago. Garold good job on yours much the same as mine, the main difference I added a long grab handle to the front of the mast
, I made it long so I could easly grab it whilst standing on the deck
with one foot on the step, then one can easly and safely pull one's self up, it is also great to hang on to at shoulder height whist standing on the coach roof swinging around the front of the mast
from one side to the other, I do this on a regular basis packing the sail prior to entering the mooring
area, both these mods have made operations much more conveniant and safer, the downside of my long handle is however on the odd occasion the knot
tied to the clew of the jib
can get caught in the long handle when I tack in a strong wind
but it is easly freed, the benifit far outways that odd event. Meirriba has done a good job fitting a grab handle at the port steps it is just a natural position to have a grab handle just there. I hope Meirriba post a picture with description of how he had it fitted, I will have one fitted there in due course. Garold, looks like a neat job fitting the TV where you did, for us the factory fitted position works fine. I think of all the things Lagoon
should have done was fit a step in front of the mast, I can not but wonder why a big Company would not in there final designe sign off not reaize that a step to climbe onto the coachhouse roof and a grab handle at the port steps, and of course a handle on both seaward
sides of the steps make such a huge difference to safety and conveniance. I wonder if they ever read these threads and act to improve there products based on practical real world experience, probably not! As always just my thoughts. Regards Peter
