Slipping Lagoon 420

Any locals around Newcastle / Lake Macquarie know where I can slip my Lagoon 420 with its 26 foot beam. Sydney, Pittwater and Nelsons Bay are within reasonable reach.

Slipping Lagoon 420

Woolwich Dock in Sydney can do it. We hauled our 420 out there 2 years ago. Travel lift, very tight, only about half a meter to spare. Don't want to try it in windy conditions. Fairly expensive, but anywhere in Sydney is dear.

Sydney City Marine at Blackwattle Bay should be able to do it but at the time we needed to haul out their facility was u/s.

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

Thanks Bob, these might turn out to be my only options but I'll wait a bit and see if I can get any local possibilities.

Bob, Where do you find your hull number?

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

Hull number is part of the manufacturers HIN code. There's a post on the topic on this forum.

Mine is FR-CNB 42086J708

420 is the type
86 is the production number
J is month of manufacture, where A is January and so forth
7 is the year of manufacture (2007)
08 is the model ie 2008

I think you will find that 42 is the type and 086 is the hull number.

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

The silence from Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and Nelson Bay is deafening. Is there no place to slip a cat in these areas?

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

Have you tried Oyster Cove Marina at Port Stephens? Shallow getting in but they can handle a 42' cat easily. Seen some of the bigger cruise boats in there.

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

I should have said that I believe they can handle it easily. They use hydraulic lift trailer v.s. Travel lift. Also their prices are very good. The Bailys are good people! Have used their services for my stink boat.

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

Unfortunately Oyster Cove is only good for a 16 foot beam and I need 26 foot. Are there any other suggestions for slipping in the Lake Macquarie / Port Stephens area for a 42 foot cat with a 26 foot beam?

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

Did you look at the right Oyster Cove? Not the one in Tasmania.

Cove Marine in Oyster Cove, Port Stephens definitely takes your width. Look up the website by that name. There are currently 2 410's there including mine, as well as larger cats.

They have hardstand storage and separate work areas, and you can live on the boat while doing your own work. They are remote so you really need transport to get to the shops.

Re: Slipping Lagoon 420

Thanks Steve, I spoke to them on the phone and the "girl" told me 16 foot max after taking all my details....I'll try again tomorrow. Albatross Marine at Lemon Tree Passage sound possible however.

I'm surprise at that as they have had commercial 55-60' cats in there. You need to talk to Phil Bailey or his dad. They would know what the drill is.

If you still get a No, ask how they are going to relaunch the other cats they have on hardstand at present. There are at least 4 cats my size or bigger there at present. Something has gone wrong with the communication. Maybe they are referring to the under bridgedeck clearance.

Here is a photo of mine being hauled out with their adjustable width trailer.

Edit:
Thinking about it some more, maybe that is their mono limit.
