The fall season is here and it’s time to start blogging about cruising. During the winter months, I post every Wednesday about our cruising lifestyle, so here we go. . .
The time of year is upon us where we go through our commissioning list and launch Mattina, our Lagoon 380 S2. We usually spend about 8 days on the hard, working on areas that need to be done with the boat out of the water.
Then Mattina gets launched, and we proceed to part two of the commissioning process. I won’t rewrite what we did in the fall of 2012 for commissioning, but here are the links if you are interested.
This year, I thought I’d write about some of the things we do that aren’t on our regular commissioning list but have to be one for us to keep Mattina in mint condition.
I love before and after photos. We decided Mattina needed new window coverings. The large windows on the cabins and showers provide ample light below decks and spectacular views. We all want to see out, but that doesn’t mean we want others seeing in. The winder covering on Mattina started to wear and so . . . new window coverings.
This might seem easy, but getting paint off windows is hard work and certainly takes time.
But the result was worth the effort.
Now tell me the second photo doesn’t look better!
Thanks for reading . . .

THank you. So satisfying when things go well. Always learning a new skill on this boat.
Now that you are finished, can you come over and help me with my boat! lol Looks great Tina!
Finished? It’s never finished. Painted bottom of dingy today. Finished waxing the outside. Put on new tramp. Only have till Friday and then we launch.
I liked my own post by accident. How embarrassing!
Wow, what an improvement! Definitely worth the work.
And how about that America’s Cup? Going to check it out tonight, hopefully on YouTube. 🙂
America’s Cup was very exciting to watch last night. What a great victory.
Hi there, looks beautiful.. please share how did you get the paint off the picture window. I have a 380s2 with the same horrible looking windows.. (before).. Did you use mek or acetone? Im worried to damage the surrounding gel coat. Thanks in advance rich
