Fair point - he does clearly state that Colin had identified that the start of the structural problem predated the hurricane damage. I perhaps overlooked that because he goes on to draw a firm conclusion for which he provides no evidence. If you accept that the structural damage predates the hurricane this is no necessarily ‘clear proof of poor design/construction’ unless you know the history of the boat!

Stronger than the original and doesnít require the deck to come up. If done correctly, can also be hidden behind trim and fittings.
Thanks. I hope it all works out. I will continue to follow the videos.

If you watch all the Parley Revival videos, as I have from day one, you will see in these later videos clear evidence of construction failures. Example - he has found and shown pics of the adhesives ised in original build where the beads of adhesive that were meant to bond the deck & hull (as well as others areas) NEVER even touched! The adhesive still looks like a bead of round extruded toothpaste clearly evidencing the parts meant to adhere never touched in original construction. That is POOR construction and POOR quality control! Pics and videos of numerous areas like that are the "evidence" you want. Check out the video's and see for yourself what I am telling you.

Re: Broken Lagoon

The main issue with these repairs is you have to gut the interior to get to the repairs. That will be the big fix I think.

Sadly this is the the rule in modern boat building, not the exception. If you bother to read David Pascoe's writing... a famous marine surveyor deceased in 2018, but his articles kept alive on the internet, it becomes very obvious that sloppy workmanship in factory built boats is pervasive. The methods used lead to exactly the sort of issues you describe. Lagoon is hardly alone in resorting to labor saving methods... If you can't keep the costs down, you won't sell boats. I think of factory built plastic boats as being in the same class as manufactured homes........ and of course the majority of them spend their lives in marine trailer parks (marinas) ironically ;-) There will always be these kinds of issues both in monohulls and multihulls, and probably always have been.



Even the "big boys" have their problems .....

i had really thorough check of our boat and found glued areas and even found areas where that glue has not stick from day 1. Glued is all furniture to bulkhead or furniture to hull and bonding is little and is not structural. When boat fails structurally this glueed areas will of course detach. Bulkhead glue only areas are ones where some play is desired to spread forces - this was my estimate.

Colin is great guy with marine degree but he is novice regarding cat building techniques of today.

There is clear line where fiberglassing ends and gluing starts. Also in main bulkhead. So it is glassing plan set by builder. Saying that you know better than builders equipped with computer models and running finite element analysis to determine strengths required for each point of boat is not credible. They have database of failures, feedback from 1000's of boats and improving based on experiences.

Yes thay have built stronger boats in the past but because they added safety margin - couple extra layers - as they didnt have enough feedback to know when is enough strength. that is not necessary better building of boats. It did help with grounding. But sometimes you got extra structural cracks.

Todays production boats are not meant to be grounded any longer. But they are faster.

Our L400 has over 30k nm and zero deterioration of structure, so that is validation of well enough built boat, evidence countering above fearmongering claims.

And it appears design error was made with L 450 water and rot definitely has something to do with it in large number of cases.

But, but, what about the computer models and finite element analysis?

1) the glue not sticking from day one on a non structural part is a sign of shoddy workmanship, and if they donít care about that then they probably also donít care to much about the structural bonds.
2) itís obvious the builders computer models and finite element analysis didnít catch onto the badly designed bulkheads on the 450 so maybe a boat owner could do better?
3) the bulkheads appear to be warping from compression. If there was rot in the bulkheads it would probably relieve some of the compression and warping, so no rot may not have anything to do with it.

Broken Lagoon

It also worries me that boats less then 10 years old have rotten structural bulkheads. Is that caused by bad design, shoddy workmanship or bad maintenance?
I will give Lagoon kudos as it appears they stepped up to the plate and took care of the problems with the Lagoon 400 bulkheads, thatís a sign of a good company. Will they also step up to the plate and take care of the Lagoon 450 bulkhead issues?

Re: Broken Lagoon

Donít know about you guys, but I donít use ďglueĒ on my boat, period. I use epoxy. I use sealant. I canít think of any ďglueĒ Iíve ever used on any of our boats.

Re: Broken Lagoon

You are incorrect. if you watch all the Parlay episodes, you will see that they discovered a previous owner made some shoddy repairs to the broken bulkheads. It was clearly evident as Parlay pointed out once the walls were removed.

You cannot in any way shape of form blame Lagoon for the issue based on the boats history yet Lagoon is assisting with technical information. That does not sound like a company that leave people stranded.

Epoxy is glue
It is also laminating resin
Or fairing compound


Not a brand I have used but it clearly says glue

That must be one hell of a database.....and growing.

It must be a relief to know they have a database of failures. If that is the parameter of success I assume you drive a Ford Pinto.
