    Hello, I have a lagoon 410 out of the water, the boat has some damage to one of the keel and both rudders as well has a missing mast from the previous owner. I have an option to buy a F40 for parts (mast, rudders, dagger boards...). My current draft is 4 ft and a bit annoying. I was thinking of cutting the keels and adding the dagger board of the F40 (like on the catanas). The thinking behind would be added safety at sea (less chance to flip) and less draft. What are you thoughts? Thanks in advance. Pierre
