Got Our Boat !

Hi, everybody!

I've been on this forum for a while while we were searching for our dream boat. Well. we found her. A very nice Lagoon 470 owner's version of 2005 with just about all the accessories we could think of. Sitting in the Western Med and enjoying the strong winds they currently have there.

So be prepared for lots of questions - I have not been able to locate manuals for a lot of the little boxes inside the boat, yet I need to somehow figure out what they do and especially if it is what they should be doing...

Congratulations!! This will be, of course, one of the most exciting moments of your life. Beautiful boat!

Seek here and ye shall find -- someone or another around here can tell you anything you want to know about any of your "little boxes".

Congrats and welcome aboard. More pictures of the 470 when you can, please!

Do you plan to stay in the Med, or are you headed out?
