    i was thinking if i did plates i would use the smallest one. there isnt a lot of glass to attach to. mines reinstalled so i dont have a pattern but my tool guy has a water jet and so cutting a little plate of stainless would be really easy. my hull is dry but the seal around the chute leaks...

    I'd love to find a gasket kit for mine..leaks some water past the chute after 40 years. And that material looks really thin. I haven't disassembled it yet though. I've been all over looking for them..even ebay.. there was a guy over at sa saying he got one that I believe was tacked to a cork...

    Holy crap the entire bailer fell out! If you have the same one I do....I think it's called the super suck 80 or something. you're probably screwed with a replacement.. they stopped making them.a few years ago from what Ive found. I looked and looked for one but couldn't find one. And the...

    ok....some advice maybe before doing something really dumb...single hand virgin

    welll...ive decided i gotta try to run my l2 single handed. figure pick a low wind day at first. no spin. no traps. best i can figure is set the jib conservatively and trim on the main only. no gybes. slow tacks release the jib after rolling through the tack trim on the main then trim on the...

    Replace fairlead for broken screw

    if you do some google searching you can find the diagrams for the wood blocking in the boats. there might be wood blocking under there. if there is, bumping that fairlead forward a half inch shouldnt be a a big deal. ive discovered that there are things screwed in places with no blocking though...

    What size split rings for classic laser Boomvangs?

    i bought the entire boom kit. i made the mistake of riveting the block on via the strap. it would be really nice to be able to remove that block sometimes so if you do that, get a swiveler or a shackle or something. just my 02. ymmv. i picked up an entire bag of the stainless cotter rings from...

    i passed on it. looks like a decent boat and the woman who owns it is doing the sunfush nationals. i just did the drive up to buffalo over the weekend. 7 hours one way and have another hour one way probably tomorrow and didnt feel like tossing in another 2 oneway to delaware. or spending the...

    It's a Parker. Older boat. Still waiting on more info on it..it needs a bunch of wood replacement..probably leaks like a seive.. but has a few sets of sails with it blah blah. The guy has a bunch of stuff. Sunfish laser l2....it's actually what I'm afraid of turning into. I don't know Marc...

    heres the machined hole in the mast from where the old diamonds went through and into the tensioners in the bottom cap of the mast. exactly like mine. i bet those holes were drilled later for the turnbuckles. mine does not have the jib car tracks though. just the cams with the fairlead plate...

    oh!!!! the boat locker in ct carries grab rails. i got mine from there. and i need to check....maybe us one design. i actually ordered them from 2 different places waiting for the first order to arrive. his imports were apparently stuck in customs and i just ordered another set from someplace...

    Yeah. I figured out the twist shackle thing already and it should go right on. So not worried.. I'll setup the laser and shoot a line against the mast at some point if I can figure out a decent horizon.. The laser performance boom blocks and traveller block are the same..dropped right on and...

    That's very interesting about the mast rake..I guess the more important thing would be where is it when the jib is up. Because that can all be adjusted with jib Cunningham too..this damned boat tuning thing hurts my head. The fore stay is pretty loose when the jib is up. Don't distract me...

    hey...does that mean mines the oldest??? 953! :) and from the same shop!!! looking at his, hes got the jib tracks. it looks like the mast has been retrofitted for the bottle adjusters for the diamonds too. you can see the original holes machined just a little lower near the step. thats gotta be...
