    Dear God! I hope you are wrong too! $8k US for a new Laser! Suddenly the Finn class is looking more appealing for us bigger guys. At least I could get a decent used one for that. I hope the new owners don't have their heads up their.... well you know. Although they could be thinking "Monopoly" and end up screwing the whole thing up.

    Rounded up, a MOJO spec Laser from Colie Sails is going for about $6000. Why you would quote a British laser source and convert to American money is beyond me, as the price does not accurately reflect the true price of an American boat.

    Dear Ross B

    If I want to buy a Laser boat, this is the only way we have to.....I have to buy it to PERFORMANCE.

    ...or please tell me another way to buy it.

    Thanks Ross B.
    In Mexico, MOJO is a drink with Tequila..........teast it !!!!



    I want to tell you a little more about Uruguay.



    Is a very exclusive place in summer (Jan-Feb-March), If you are in ARG you have to fly 1 hour or drive 3 hours, now you can go aboard a CELEBRATION SHIP, or another line.


    All the first world V.I.P. goes to Punta del Este (East Point)

    .........also the gays tours goes there !!!!!

    But I think that u$s 8.857.- is not cheap for this people too.......

    And if you want to know how the Uruguayan people is, read this book....you can not miss it !!!!!

    Dr Loser...

    step one.
    decide how many Lasers yu would like to buy.

    Step two
    Find a friend in new Zealand

    Step three:
    have the friend buy the lasers

    Step four;
    have the Lasers shipped to you.

    Well done Murphs, I wondered how long it would take for someone to quote an actual price as opposed to (possibly) making them up. I noticed that the NZD price was for a standard Laser without the pro rigging. Price of the pro-rigged Laser standard is:

    9,990 NZD = 7,550 USD

    As Homer Simpson once said “Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. 14% of people know that.

    I also found these prices online:
    http://www.nblaser.com.au/new_boats.htm
    8,295 AUD = 7,910 USD
    Australian Dollars / United States Dollars
    1 AUD = 0.953758 USD / 1 USD = 1.04848 AUD

    http://www.brest.direct-sailing.com/liste_deriveur-Occasion.html
    5,990 EUR = 9,360 USD
    Euro / United States Dollar
    1 EUR = 0.55704 USD / 1 USD = 0.642329 EUR


    Dr Loser - Perhaps you could provide details of where these prices are quoted from?

    "How to have a vacation in Brazil

    and pay NOTHING !!!!!

    This is the info we have got in the web about costs:


    FRA........................u$s 9.360.-

    AUS........................u$s 7.910.-
    http://www.nblaser.com.au/new_boats.htm



    Do you remember when I said:
    ...... I think if a guy in South America want to buy a laser must pay this prices more deliver, more tax, more...
    ....so we'll pay almost u$s 10.000.-......
    .....and some of you said: Doc this is a joke !!!!!!


    This is from:

    http://www.boatspeed.com.br/

    [​IMG]

    u$s 11433.-.................R$ 18.350.-
    u$s 1.-.........................R$ 1,605.-

    u$s 11.433.-

    I know that a Laser in USA is u$s 5.700.-
    So bring it to SA and you'll sell for u$s 8.700.- !!!!!!


    A month in Brazil with u$s 3.000.- you are PELE !!!!


    All the best for you.

    Or perhaps people are waiting to see your unique response to my question of where you got some of those prices from.....?


    What, no thanks to me?

    Ummm, these "quotes" of yours look really familiar, like they've been previously posted somewhere......

    Can you tell us where you got your original New Zealand price for a new Laser of $3,736 USD from?

    I get the fact that you feel hard done by and I agree that its rotten luck that you no longer have a dealer in Argentina however, 'If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem'. Get some of your doctor friends together and approach Laser Performance and make them a deal. If that doesn't work, fly up to the USA, buy 50 new Lasers, put them in containers and ship them back home. Even here in Canada I've heard of guys driving across the border and buying them in the US to save a few dollars.
    Is something like this outside the realm of possibility?

    Dear Zoophyte:
    I send you a Super Special Gratefulness because you help us to think about a solution to resolve this problem.....
    .....if there is any........
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!!


    You know, I write big because I can not read very well......so please do not take offence if I forgot to name you.
    Do not be jealous, I read you !!!!!


    1º)

    2º)
    Ummm, these "quotes" of yours look really familiar, like they've been

    previously posted somewhere......

    My first question was:
    "Is this info ok?"

    And I have said:
    "This is the info we have got in the web about costs."


    All these info have been got for all of us !!!
    ....if you visit all these links you'll see that the info is ok!!!


    Can you tell us where you got your original New Zealand price for a new Laser of $3,736 USD from?

    A friend in this forum sent it to me in a Private Message.....and if this info is wrong,
    no problem !!!!!....we keep looking for more info.

    3º)
    ........Get some of your doctor friends together and approach Laser

    Performance..........

    Ok, we have a lot of solutions about this problem:
    Bring the boats from Brazil, from England........

    But we are waiting for an official response, nothing else.

    So if we must accept that:
    Till december the Laser was u$s 5.500.- and now we must pay more than u$s 10.000.-, ok, no more discussion.

    If you say to your boss:
    "This is the solution about the problem you have asked me, you must pay double and say nothing"

    ...what do you think he'd say?


    We think that we must complain to the authorities and hope that they answer our questions.

    We are waiting for an official response, nothing else.

    All the best
    Dr Loser.

    Dear Zoophyte:
    Do not forget this that I have written in this link:

    http://www.laserforum.org/champion-south-america-t9093p2.html


    What is the ILCA ????
    http://www.laserinternational.org/information/whatilca.htm



    Here you have a summary

    Provides co-ordination,organisation and communication for the class worldwide.

    Liaison with National and International authorities.

    Monitors building agreements
    http://www.laserinternational.org/manu.htm
    (PRIMEX do not exist any more)

    Positively promotes Laser sailing worldwide.

    This is one of our greatest strengths.
    In many other classes a lack of international communication has caused groups of sailors in different counties to become isolated and the class in that country to become extinct.
    This fall off in activity eventually affects the class in established countries leaving only the truly international classes well supported.

    Co-ordinates International Events Calendar.

    Administers the class worldwide.


    And there is a bonus!
    It is quick to rig, it keeps you fit and is inexpensive !!!

    Probably is not expensive for you and for a lot of people, but we are not alone in this world !!!!!

    6 Continents, 122 Countries.........
    One Continent is in a big trouble



    All the best for you
    Dr Loser
