I've been basically given a 1980 model Laser standard. She's been sitting on her side under my buddies back deck for what he claims to be 8+ years. Other than major cleaning and some parts and pieces from Intensity, she's really exceeded my expectations. The hull seems firm and the deck reasonably solid. It came with a questionable mast step. So I cut in an inspection port and reinforced the base of the step, even though it seemed sound. The rigging is all original, and will be updated soon. Sail is off brand and pretty much like new. Rudder, dagger board, and tiller are all upgraded to current and like new as well. I really think I've got something my 3yr can learn on and sail for years!! But first, I got to have my fun with her!!!
