Mark thanks. I have considered sinking in advance. I have heard others mention this radical solution. However, openning the sea cock would not sink this boat. Maybe about three inches lower but thats it. At best if I pump everything full, her cock pit would still be high and dry.
Besides the piano....
Last night I was discussing this issue with a Lagoon 380
owner. Last year he felt the wind get under his vessel while anchored. "It scared the h out of me because I knew what the wind was doing and physically felt the whole vessel rise."
In 2008 a Lagoon
410 at anchor
turned turtle with the owner inside. He safely got out.
Based on these two reports, my planning before a storm strikes seems prudent.
One new conclusion I came to is all 4 tramps off and not just the front two.
Also I did another check and now conclude I can easily add 60 tonnes.
I will move this question to boatdesign but feel free to post any experience with this topic.
