    I'm looking into buying an older Laser right now to learn on for a cheap price, but just wanted to check something first.

    The laser I have an eye on is a 1981 production year. I was wondering if there are any major changes between time expanses. I mean, it seems that it's very rare that class changes occur for the laser, but is there anything to worry about in terms of construction techniques from back then?

    Any input would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks!

    Construction will be very similar between and 81 and a 07 hull, same layup schedule, same foam in the deck etc, blades and spars will be the same too.

    The only changes will be in rigging, which you can upgrade if you choose.

    If you are down on LI during the summer, consider coming to some of the District 8 regattas - they are low key events and the people are really friendly. Schedule is here : http://laserd8.tripod.com/

    Awesome! In case this deal on the laser doesn't go through, is there a way I can rent one? I really would love to start racing 'em.
