Flooring buckled on 41' Lagoon

Looked a a 01 Lagoon the other day.....noticed in the main salon on each side that the laminate was buckled (cracked and raised up) a little this common? I mean i know that the boats flex a little bit but was this a weak point ? or just common?

Re: Flooring buckled on 41' Lagoon

Hi Watermax,
When we were looking at purchasing our 2004 Lagoon 410S2 the only issue that I could find were that 410's may suffer from rot in the Saloon Floor. The main cause was identified as condensation from the fridge and freezer compressor leaking and getting under the floor. I also found that water would enter through the sliding door base. Part of the deal when buying the boat, (3 years ago) was to replace the rotted section. Rather then go back to the laminate we opted for marine play covered with a vinyl which we have been very very happy with.
Of course there could be another issue. I would suggest a surveyor or shipwright to check out the flooring to determine exactly what the cause may be.

Re: Flooring buckled on 41' Lagoon

Like ozsailer said. It's not that uncommon an issue on the 410's. Condensation from fridge and freezer, along with water from the salon door sill, runs under the floor. If you buy a 410, remember the door sill has no drain. The only time its a real problem is if you hose down the sliding doors while cleaning the boat. There's just no place for the water to go, so be careful. Usually whatever rain hits the doors it's not enough to cause an issue. The floor is not hugely difficult to replace. You have lot's of options...
Cruisin' again....
