One I can see on internet, can't see how could be done .....
Wichard 6606 folding pad-eyes, 4080kg working load. Like Tim, I used extra fibreglass reinforcement and large alloy backing plates. You can access this area by lying on engine bay ply wood sound covers and looking up, towards aft cleats. Intended for use with a Seabrake GP30 drogue, which has less loading than a Jordan series drogue.

If it doesn't work, I'll let you know. Perhaps I won't be able to?

We haven't sorted that out yet. It will be going out for charter in the next couple months, so we will figure it out. In those conditions we were not worried. It is a light wind sail overall though. I will try and update with more information later. Pretty harried getting everything together in the last couple of months from the freighter, to 2 boat shows, commissioning and now about to head over to the charter base.

This is the gentleman (Don) who sold us our L400 S2 and taught us what we know. He is probably the most experienced multihull person we have ever met.

Re: Love my Lagoon!

That must be the best way to do 17 knots to windward!

Yep, also went past Somalia, ISIS, Egypt and Saudi (who are arguing about 2 islands in The Red Sea) without any problems. 😀

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Just outside Singapore we had 2 ligthnings, that took out some of our B&G instruments, but luckily not the plotter and radar. Maybe its only the network..... no problem otherwise. Had to motor most of the way from Darwin to Singapore because of no wind, so our average must be under 7 knots now. Photo sailing from Cape York to Darwin in 18 knots northerly!

Re: Love my Lagoon!

Hi folks,
I started this post a while back, for some reason I have been unable to log in.
I bet it has been a year since my last contact.
So here is an update, 12,000 NM, currently in Mexico heading for the South Pacific in April.
Hope you all have been well.Click image for larger version
