Im going to be in the market for a laser soon. I plan on spending 4-5k on a used one but at 6k for a new one it seems feasible. Obviously the new one would be a laser performance, but I'm also looking at used vanguards. If I'm correct vanguard was bought out and now laser performance makes them. My question is are the vanguards built better or would it be worth going for the laser performance? And if I were go used how hard would it be to find a boat <130 lbs with a 12'6" mast rake without any soft spots (I'm going for a radial) from what I've heard those are the numbers you want. Im 15 but i plan on taking this boat to college.
