I've sailed Lasers quite a bit. YMCA camp when in Jr. High and then working waterfront staff at a camp that had a fleet of 14 Lasers when I was in college. Now that my own kids are Jr. High age I'm thinking about buying one. I've also seen a Force 5 for sale. Can anyone tell me the difference between the two boats. They appear to be similar. Quality, Performance, Sail area? I'm talking about the base Laser. Not an updated racing rig. Since this is on a lake with no other Lasers (and little sailing) class racing is not an issue. Thanks.
