    hi, I have a "new" 30 yr old laser. Last in the water in 1989. Seems to be in good shape overall to my inexperienced eye. Has 1 1/2 in crack in hull near front of center board. Shows signs of small amount of fiber glass work done. My theory is that torque from the center board caused the issue. I was planning to stiffen around the interior of the center board sleeve to the hull with fiberglass. After that I would also do a little repair work around the crack on the exterior of the hull. Please feel free to offer suggestions, warnings, and sympathy. Thanks, Dave

    Just added a photo from inside the laser on the port side looking at the centerboard trunk front. I cot about 2" of the stringer. Im going to put down glass mat on the bottom and the glass the sides of the trunk for support.
