Re: 440 Flybridge

You will love the 500, it is also a quicker boat than the majority of mid 40 footers due to its waterline length. Space wise not much in it compared to a 450. Saloon is bigger, rear cockpit and helm...

Re: Logistics - I almost put this in “Brain Teasers”. Ha ha

Re: Looking to buy outboard for dinghy

Re: What the heck happened to my Lexan windows? And can it be fixed?

Are you sure it is Lexan/Polycarbonate? it could be Plexiglass/acrylic, which is more robust for polishing out scratches.

Re: use tax and cruisers license in TX

Cruising License is $19.00, so not totally free, and in some ports they only take cash and do not keep change, so you may need to visit a store first to break your $20 note.

Re: Fender inventory. Care to share?

Those vertical fenders can be tied end to end so make a long horizontal fender with a support line in the middle. Makes coming into a fixed leeward dock in 25knots a bit easier.

Re: Lagoon 450S Roller Furling Spool Slipping and Jamming

Re: Lagoon 450S Roller Furling Spool Slipping and Jamming

So you have the stainless shackle constantly rubbing on the stay wire, i.e. metal to metal ? made even worse when the furling line is under tension. You have a 2016 boat so maybe in 2023 you might...
