Rather then post questions in a bunch of different threads I've decided to keep it all here in one. Looked through 10 pages of posts in this section, lots of great info - glad I found this website! Recently picked up a what I think is a Laser (no Laser badges or stickers anywhere on the hull or sail, original thrown out by mistake by PO but they bought & used a new one once - see pics). Haven't sailed one in nearly 20 years but I'm looking forward to getting it on the water. Hull has been painted a few times & makes reading the serial # difficult. I tried putting a piece of paper over the # & then lightly used a pencil to go over it hoping the # would be easier to see, but didn't have much luck. Any other ideas? I'll post a pic when I get a chance but this is what I think it is... ZRS 76278M78J which really doesn't make sense as sail # puts it as a 1980 but the last part makes it a 78 (I think). The ZRS is likely ZFS but it is hard to tell, & if it is relates to boats built between 82 & 85. The dark blue hull throws me off too as I've never saw another one like it. The cockpit drain is brass I'm guessing it has been updated from plastic but when lifting the back of the boat it was moving maybe an inch compared to the cockpit. So next project is to make an excess port in the rear deck & repair like others here have done with fiberglass & pvc cut in half for a drain. The sail is what I think is a standard, emailed the company with the # on it but they couldn't tell me what it was. Mast step has been fixed, correct? Need to test if it'll hold water. Last pic is of some of the cockpit crack repairs my Dad & I have finished. There was a pool noodle jammed in under there to hold it up, it's quite soft without it. Need some more info about fixing the floor & the deck where you sit. People drill holes & inject epoxy but I don't quite understand the process. I like that idea more then trying to separate the top & bottom of the hull. A few pics...I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. Thanks!
