Re: How many kilo's can you carry?

As a point of reference: When I bought my Lagoon 42, I transferred everything from my Passport 47 mono, accross one finger pier to the lagoon. The Passport raised a good 5 inches. (waterline had been raised twice finally leaving no bootstripe) the Lagoon went down a little less than 2 inches...

Yes I think your payload seems closer to me than 1000 kilo's. I haven't seen below the waterline. Maybe there is a large nuckle and the boat gets a lot narrower underwater. The boat can sleep 7 people. If they all weighed as much as me there would only be 300 kilo's left. 7 of me can eat 300 kilo's pretty quickly.I Joe

A lagoon sounds like it could handle the wife and 5 kids with a little to spare.joe

To my way of thinking that boat should be able to carry more like 2500 kilo's.
What part of this do I not understand?

A 50 foot boat with 10.6:1 hulls is a pretty beamy boat. I'd have thought it could carry a lot more than a tonne.

We're 44 feet, 12.5:1 and with full fuel, food and water we're carrying over 2 tonnes.

What boat what designer?

My 50fter is 13:1 on waterline
Should be no more than 4700kg at launch (could be a bit less than that)
Full load displacement 8500kg

With my homemade math I would get 939 kilo's to drop the boat 1 inch in salt water. I am sure your designers 700 kilo's will be correct but this gives a point for future reference. Thanks Joe

Yes that makes more sense to me. Joe

Yes there must have been a mistake in his calculations or the boat may be very narrow below the waterline or something else I am missing, but there doesn't seem much point in a boat 50ft 10.6/1 that can only hold 1000 kilo's. If your going to have a light payload it seems to me the boat should be fast with something like 14/1. Joe

SO if your going to carry kilos a Cat isnt the answer..... by the way-it you want to handle cargo by hand quickly and efficiently,sew it into a coffee sack.(burlap of course).:whistlin g:da de dum da de dum
