That second point got me thinking about the squared-off bulkhead door cut-outs of newer Lagoons and Leopards versus the much stronger rounded corners of older cats or something like a Privilege. When did these weaker right angles become so fashionable?

Probably around the same time Graitec did a version update to SuperStress and the panel shapes worked all of a sudden.

--note--that is a joke!!!!

Re: Broken Lagoon

If I had one of these, once they started working on it in any way, I would send a nice letter saying I dont accept any repair that does not correct keel to keel measurement and flat decks.

Its not like they can go "oh we cut your boat apart, and we acknowledge its not correctly measuring out, so we are just going to button it up and give it back" if they tried, the repair place is opeing them selves up for massive trouble.

It is in a good shape as I understood. Not extremely deformed. They measured, evaluated and found, loosening the mast shrouds would be sufficient for this fix. (One side plywood bent, the other still straight), no need for haul out for this as the boat is in shape they found (2018 model).

That is why every boat needs an individual fix, some are more damaged than others. I am curious too, what they will do to reinforce and repair the issues.

Re: Broken Lagoon

I bet if he mounted a go pro and started a youtube channel he would get 5000 scribers real fast watching the repair.

It is done by Annapolis Yacht Services (Lagoon dealer), I doubt it they will film, edit and publish the repairs work. It is a professional fix with Lagoon involved / supervision.

Subscribers dont like boring content, they want to see drama, fails and struggeling. [emoji12]

But maybe Lagoon makes an instructional video for the dealer network, who knows.

Why square doors?
1) Cheaper to build. Creating rounded doors and mating trim takes longer than square
2) It's what landlubbers are used to.

You nailed it. Most modern day catamarans are designed to emulate a house rather than a seaworthy sailing vessel.

I think thatís probably for most large vessels across the board. Not just cats.

I think modern monohulls have become more performance oriented than in the past?

Never been on a Lagoon in person, but no other boat that I have been on has square doors (except for cabinets)

Recent designs of FP are just the same, I guess other cat designs as well.

Square doorways are stupidly easy to build and cheap....... great where there is no structural load carried through. Corners are the natural failure point. Stresses are concentrated at the corners, and they are where failures tend to begin. Highest concentration of stress least material to bear the load. Below is an OLD but strong design with no history of any structural failure...... Note the oddly shaped doorways. You may recognize this boat. The oddly shaped doorways are governed by hull shape and the need to bear loads well.
