    Commercial promotion on List Servs?

    And thank you Fred Schroth for defending my inquiry. One year some time ago as District 11 Secretary, I was yelled at by Vanguard in an angry email for organizing a bulk sail of Laser from KO Sailing in TX as they offered a better price than APS in MD. Apparently I was cutting into their...

    Commercial promotion on List Servs?

    Wind indicator

    There is the Black Hawk model. I found this indicator to respond well. A set-up to consider is the flipping the bar so the indicator is upside down and though reads the same. This is a helpful way to in part save it from ripping off and going in the drink , whence a sheet from another laser...

    Sticky goo on sail

    Make sure to rinse sail after applying acetone with a mild soap and water solution. Use a med. course terry cloth. Also, lay the sail out and place a board under the area in question. JRF

    Masters have full sails and luffing minds? Speak for yourself. There some of us in rather great physical shape, pointing up wind nicely. As for luffing minds? Does that suggest we might be short on sail trim and long on emptiness of the mental capacity? Can you up with something more...

    I paid my dues today...

    Well, why pay now? I do not get full membership benefits and have to ASK for pro-rate? I wish we had the previous membership system where it's joining date is the renewal date. US Sailing operates that way.

    Trade for parts

    I want to TRADE a mast upper (any from early years?) for a Harken vang and cunningham. I live in DE, and race in MD and VA. Can also meet in N. DE area, PA/NJ. Since vangs/cunninghams cost many dollars more than a mast upper, the trade value will be negotiated. Thank you. JRF Lewes, DE...
