Among other things, one of my biggest gripes about Laser Performance in N.A. is that they have only made white and grey boats since 2008 or so. I understand that this makes the boats more alike, but I used to like how everyone's boat looked different with different colors across the fleet. It was sort of a defining personality characteristic of Lasers. Now it feels boring and sterile. The first question is this: are we ever going to see colored Lasers again? Does anyone think that LP will eventually introduce colored-stripe hulls back into the rotation at some point? The second is this: is there a way to permanently color-stripe a newer (2009-13) Laser in a way that wouldn't require regular maintenance? From what I understand, marine paints are long-lasting, but not the same way colored gelcoat is. If anyone has any expertise with this I would definitely like to hear it. Thanks in advance for the input!
