I've just discovered "profile comments" and as I was completely unaware that this method of communication existed there are unanswered questions from 2 years ago! Apologies for not replying but in my defense, I do reply to Facebook messages, Instagram messages, thread comments, emails and I try to reply to every youtube comment we get also.
If people would like Lagoon advice
then please keep your questions "in thread" because you'll most likely get a more seasoned response from one of the other experienced Gooners and others will benefit from the answers given.
So here's some questioned that I've copied and pasted:
a - We are spec-ing out our 450S and want to get the "Code 0 rig & pole" option which we understand includes the bowsprit/pole and the cockpit
winches. What else comes with this package? Specifically are there reinforced attachment points like padeyes added aft to use with blocks to turn the Code 0 sheets
toward the winches? Are these attachment points located in solid glass sections with backing plates
c - Do any blocks, sheets
, or other items come with the Code 0 option?
d - Regarding Wingaker rigging
, do bow padeyes come standard with all 450's, or only come with the "Code 0" option, or only come with the "Asymmetric Spinaker Gear" option? If they do not come standard or with the Code 0 option, I will put them on myself (and I understand that there may be some foam filler material in the way to remove before accessing that part of the hull)
e - How many halyards come with the boat in total when including the Code 0 option? 3 or 4?
1 - Is it true that the 450F can come from the factory with bow padeyes but not the 450S? If so, why?
2 - On the 450S where do you run your guys? Also back to the cockpit
sheet winches with double jammer? If not, where?
3 - Would it make sense to add reinforced cleats
to the bows instead of padeyes to serve double purpose of attaching blocks and attaching to mooring
4 - How do you get at the underside of the bows forward of the bulkhead? Is it foam filled?
5 - Is it smart to add a jammer forward of the windlass
to handle the downhaul on a bowsprit
mounted headsail like a Code 0?
I will have a proper read thru this lot and answer everything when I get back from my 6 hour dive... I'm at work! Back later.
