Re: FP venezia 42 vs Lagoon 42 TPI?
Both of them are good boats, well built, with similar sailing characteristics and payload weights. At their present age, you will be comparing upkeep, refurbs and personal preferences for things such as sail handling, seating, berths, heads, galleys, etc.
You won't go wrong with either one in good condition.
You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
