    2001 Laser + Trailer for Sale, SF Bay Area

    Laura, this sounds wonderful... but I am a bit hesitant about all this: people typically do not buy a boat unseen and maybe the surprise for your husband, however sweet, turns into something bitter. Why don't you come check out the boat with your husband or with someone who knows boats. I hope...

    2001 Laser + Trailer for Sale, SF Bay Area

    Solid 2001 boat for sale. The hull and spars are in pretty good shape. It comes with two (full rig) sails. One is nearly new and has been used in Southern California (light winds) only. The other one is still in one piece, but well-used. The boat has all the new rigging and is ready to sail...

    And to contextualize: Ainslie writes you should not go for the extremes "what you are really looking for is something in the middle." Too much forward creates "more mast bend." So, he does not say you should look for a 152" rake. I believe the Laser class aims at 150.5" a number I have come...

    New Laser Sailor!!!

    And to further that analogy: Planning on attending the world series next year and buying a glove in January is not such a good idea In sailing: Not such a good idea either.

    Fall Sailing Gear

    Be careful: in these conditions you were fine, but the water will cool down (I am not sure where you are) and a deathroll will not be so pleasant, or even dangerous! Georg

    UV protection for deck

    You leave your sail on the mast? does that have a cover? I would be more worried about UV damage to the sail than to anything else!!! G

    Ross, It seems that we are not the ones uninterested in new ideas, but rather that you are not interested in a better way of throughbolting. Georg

    Just Bought a 1979 Laser - Help!!

    That does not look bad at all. I wonder if you actually want to fiberglass this together. I am thinking that a little flexibility might be good at that point. I would go with the 5200 and the brass bushing. I think you can get it pretty waterproof that way. I also wonder: is this really a 79...

    Boom Reinforcing Sleeve installation

    I second that! The method described above is exactly how I did it. It is not difficult at all. It will take a bit of time, but once you get going, it is very very easy. G
