    Thanks George, yes this is the number I have been told as well. My current (older) boat measures closer to 151.5, so I am "too much forward."

    "148 cm is raked back, 152 cm is raked forward." I dont think these figures are correct - not right dimensions.

    Yes Fernando, mast rake was measured in the early days (ie 70s) - this information can be found in old laser publications.

    Stretch in an old sail!

    Yes Freddy, not only does the sail stretch, outhaul line will also stretch and boom will bend (I don't have boom upgrade yet). You will have to play outhaul (vang and cunny also) through the puffs and lulls to keep draft position consistent.

    VIntage Laser?

    Hi Kelly yes - racing older boat with wood(ie) makes sense. I race with an old 72'ish boat (#8056) and 78' vintage sail and still manage to have fun. All laser hulls are are fast - sailors determine race position.
