I hope you are feeling better. Good luck with your cabinet project!
Thanks for making me smile. I'm improving but the ruptured shoulder ligaments are taking a lot longer to heal than I thought would be the case. Lying in bed
is the worst. Good news on the cabinets. I spoke to a Lagoon
dealer and he seems to think that a number of high gloss coat finishes could be done after market for around $10K. The FP on the other hand has a reasonable selection of wood colors and you can get the high gloss Finnish that I like.
I saw a particularly nice looking color scheme at the recent Miami boat show
on a Lagoon
MY 630. The regular white saloon
walls where black. With the lighter colored cabinets it looked really nice. But I still would want the high gloss finish. And Lagoon refuses to do the L58 in the black finish so I would gave to do it as an after market.
Realizing if I go with a Lagoon to get the look I want I'm going to have to do it aftermarket. Which got me thinking about if I'm going to go into all this trouble because the factory isn't flexible why not consider buying
nearly new and upgrade a few more things while I'm at it. While at the show I priced out the cost of two large motors. For less than $50K I could repower
a few years old Lagoon. Even if I replaced the rigging
and upgraded the electrics I would be still way under $80K. Then say $20K for refinishing the cabinets the way I want I walk away with a virtually brand new boat for $100's of thousands less than new. Its nice to buy new and not have to do anything because your getting what you want from the factory. But its very tempting to look at going in the other direction if ism heaving to do aftermarket messing around anyway.
