Re: Fathers Grace-45' Leopard

Cats that are Dogs

So if the Broadblue is a dog to me then the Lagoon would be as well. Well, this is some learning curve and it will take a lot more research on my part that appears certain/ Thanks for your help/

It's a big risk to go on someone's boat as crew. Really, you have no way of knowing if the captain is drunk, incompetent, nasty or suffers from other problems. You can't really know the condition...

I was hoping that the 450 would hold such radical improvements as to make the 440's in diminished demand vs. a new 450. But if it is evolutionary only then this will not happen and the prices of the...

Sorry Steve, I did not blow the thumbnail up. Yes, I can clearly see that there is just one helm station. Now it begs the question...what is different about it? I would have loved 2 helm stations....

Lagoon 450

This boat appears to have two helm stations outside-flybridge and port side? If so, this is a measurable improvement over the 440, I think.

And why you think a cat so much easier. I can guess, but would like to hear it from you and what downsides do you see? How does it perform in very heavy seas vs. the monohull? What trouble can you...
