Re: Some Lagoon 440 Modifications to consider.

It also allows you to unclip the stern safety lines, back up to a floating mooring buoy, stop, walk down the sugar scoop steps, pass a line through the said buoy and walk forward tying the line to the bow cleat.

Kinda changes most functions of mooring to being capable of being performed single-handedly.

2 degrees here at 8am, i'll be working inside awhile!!

Cheers thanks for your comments.

Re: Some Lagoon 440 Modifications to consider.

We were staying with friends, he is a auto spray painter, i sanded and filled with epoxy filler, blocked it down and gave it to him asking he paint it off white explaining that gelcoat has a lot of yellow tinge.

He had no colour sample the boat being 12,000 miles away. He used a commercial two pack topcoat over a filler finally baking it.

Personally he absolutely nailed it, i just didn't want 'stark white'. I'm sitting inside the cabin doing the wiring harness now, the boat is covered in light ice something us Aussies cannot cope with!!!!!!

Thanks for your comment.

3) Under cockpit table shoe storage.

4) Mooring/deck cleat re-inforcement.

5) Lithium bank.

All must be done over the next 10 weeks prior to setting sail for Greece/Turkey.
Modifications look great!
Must be wonderful to be back on board, ice and all .

Where did you source the Lithium batteries?
We found a supplier in Czecoslovakia, but at the last moment he refused to deliver to Greece .

Yes same supplier, two things can you try Turkey? Second one wait till mine arrive and if all good and we are def heading to Greece i could bring them down for you?

Waiting allows you to fine tune my installation from my mistakes?

Cheers Frank

That would be absolutely brilliant! Thank you for the offer. We could organise payment and just have them delivered to you if you are planning to come to Greece. We can chat later. xxxxxx

I am not on Facebook, but I will send you my email details.
Somehow I don't think our investment would be at risk LOL.

Beautifully mild here. 16 deg at the moment. Load of washing is drying well. We have had warm southerlies from Libya almost constantly for about 3 weeks now, so most days lately have been shorts and T-shirt weather. Unseasonably warm even for Crete!

Re: Some Lagoon 440 Modifications to consider.
