Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

A Lagoon went up on a reef here in the BVI. Wasn't in that bad shape, but by the time the salvors had dragged it off the reef, the bottom was gone. Wasn't too much better than this one. Do we know that this boat's condition wasn't due to some outside assistance?

Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

Apparently he sunk at the beach , FB group talk about a saildrive broken or both saildrives and engine roms flooded. seems no positive buoyancy anyway, but i dont see in this pictures any contact with rocks or reefs, who know? could be a soft sand beach make that ?

Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

The 380 will float with engine rooms flooded. Unfortunately there is a hose and valve that runs from the engine room to the bilge that should be left open to drain the compartment, but closed in the event of engine room compartment flooding. I doubt this operation would have been included in any pre charter briefing..
The engine compartment is close to the waterline and would hold less than 200l of water if flooded.

I'm not bashing, honest question here, both hulls?
Likelihood of both hulls taking on water without something really bad happening is remote isn't it?

Can't tell anything from the pictures really, maybe 100 yds away is the mother of all rocks that would rip the bottom out of a steel freighter?

Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

Third picture does it look like a line going from the stern to the cliff?

Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

I'm just saying the standard factory setup for the compartments. I have no idea what destroyed that cat. If the standard setup bothered an owner they could easily install additional bilge pumps in the engine compartment and leave the valve closed. Probably a $300 job.

Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

I'm only thinking whatever it was that happened, had to happen to both hulls, so I assume unlikely it was some kind of failure in the boat, whatever it was, must have been pretty traumatic, I would think, but if that is a line to shore in the third picture it look like she anchored there, not had a bad accident and made for the beach
