    I paid my dues today...

    Hah! I have been called an "athletic supporter" but never chimney supporter". As for the other, will leave that alone. Pyro Chick works for me.

    Confused on age of laser 2

    I have a Laser I, that the serial number is the same except I am 88004. I think you are right on the year. My question is do we use the full 5 digits for our sail numbers? The new numbers are two digits for the year and 4 for the sail. I am confused and no matter how much research I do, I have...

    I paid my dues today...

    Here is a question for y'all. I have a Laser, chances are that said Laser will never be class legal due to financial constraints. Plus, my sailing ability does not warrant a class legal boat at this time. Do I pay my dues and become a member of a class orginization? Part of me feels that I...

    Never sailed before, some questions

    OH, and about the "land sickness" thing, it goes away. For the longest time I thought I was weird and it was just happening to me. Just don't close your eyes in the shower for awhile and you will be fine.

    Never sailed before, some questions

    If you are at Jericho the chances are you will have started in an Escape. The horrid little roto-molded orange rubber duck. I hated those things. If you capsized 5 times already that means you must have had some wind! They turn back over easy peasy but they are darned hard to climb back into...

    bow line?

    I think we may be right. There is a list of things that you must have at all times. Let's see if I can do this from memory. Bailer Oar Whistle Painter Darn, for some reason I think there should be five. Maybe for racing a painter is not needed?

    bow line?

    I'm sorry, I am new and maybe wrong, but do you think that they are asking for a painter? A tow line? Let me know, I love these terminology thingys.

    I think I have read your site back to front. There is a ton of great stuff there. I don't understand alot of it yet, but as I move forward it is making more sense. I have talked to Couchsurfer and he has been great.

    Ooooops! Forgot one question. Because this boat will never be class legal, what is the opinion on aftermarket parts? I hope I am not breaking any rules by asking that on this forum.

    She is up on sawhorses in the driveway. I bought a little sander and all the different sandpaper I will need. Found the extension cord and I am ready to go. I am just scared to start. I am going to be working with materials I have never dealt with before. I do have some more experienced help...

    Laptop down for the count so no pics. I'll tell you a secret, women like a bit of chunk in their men. Very funny though.

    I did think about that but do not have access to many Lasers that wouldn't think it odd to have a strange woman tracing their boat. I may have to see if our local store actually has one on the floor. Thanks!

    Silly question time. My hull has a bit of a chunk out of the very tip of the bow and I was wondering if anybody had a template or any other advice that would help me repair/ shape properly. Thanks, FG
