Hi Everyone. I'm considering getting a Laser this spring but I am still puzzling in my head how I am going to launch it. A lot of the material I have read so far show the boat being launched via a dolly from a beach. The reservoir where I sail has a boat ramp between two piers. I will need to launch the boat from a trailer and tie it to one of the adjacent docks so I can park the car and trailer. I will then have to step into the boat for final preparations before casting off from the dock. My current boat is a 16' Rebel. It has cleats both for and aft so it's pretty secure when it's tied to a dock. It's stable enough that you can stand in it and walk around without capsizing. How easy is it to step into the Laser from a dock? With only the bow ring for a painter, I am wondering how to get it secure enought to step into and how stable will it be once you do step onboard. I have visions of the boat capsizing as soon as I step onboard. Same question for returning to pier. How easy is it to tie up to a pier and step off a Laser? Thanks!
