    Unlikely. My spy who works for LP says they have a warehouse with 100+ new hulls in it at present. The issue they have is getting enough foils and spars to keep up with the flow of sales.

    Don't LP now make the foils themselves? "LaserPerformance’s dedicated new manufacturing facility using their proprietary infused foils technology" http://www.laserperformance.com/blog/laserperformance-set-to-launch-new-grp-foils. Can anybody confirm or correct my understand that this "dedicated new manufacturing facility" was in China, then got moved to the US? Assuming Jeffers spy is UK, then is one side of the "pond" causing issues for the other side? If a builder can't even supply itself a core component of the laser, no wonder we have the spread of "third party" none class legal parts.

    OK, super confused now. Put infused foils into Google, you find the following two posts on the LP website about the GRP foils.
    One talks about Simon Cooke of a company called Infused Foils.

    Next found the following

    Finally found a website for a company called OMTRO.

    This is the most up to date thing l could find about LP's foils. https://www.facebook.com/LaserPerfo....100008.92222353425/10151940534128426/?type=1 The centreboard doesn't look like a GRP infused one with "grey" top part. Looks just like any normal pre 2010 one or a third-party non class legal centreboard.

    Perhaps they could buy some from PSA?

    The latest LP Laser boards are painted white and not gelcoated.
