Re: Extending a Lagoon 40

There's a Lagoon 420 named "The Norm" that was extended 5 feet. Shows up for sale on some sites so it might give you some ideas / inspiration.

Re: Diesel spill in boat

PureAyre works great for me. I had about a liter of diesel that leaked from a sending unit that got down into the bilge. PureAyre liberally sprayed in the bilge got rid of the smell overnight.

Re: 7 Day's Sailing - Northern Exumas - Itinerary

Re: Diesel in my bilge after filling tank?

Re: Favourite way of tracking boat refurb project

I use Trello as well. For big projects I use the description field to keep track of subtasks, thoughts, progress, etc. I try to keep the lists simple: "Important", "Nice to have", "Doing", and "Done".

Re: Marina

There's not a lock to get into Burnt Store. It has about 10 cats there of various sizes (Helia and Leopard 46 among the biggest I believe).

Regatta Pointe in Cape Coral is another option.
