    Hi Tim, Where are you located. I am not much interested in selling the dolly just yet - want to see if i can sell it with the boat as a package. Mike

    Sorry Brendon - only interested in selling the US, just to hard to work out all the logistics with overseas & and still hoping for someone interested in the lot.

    Dealer: "older" boats more prone to leaks-not made as well.

    I purchased an 86 that was in very very good condition - with a trailer but without the upgrades, for $1200. I think that might be a little high for a 77, but I guess it depends on where you are and what the market is.

    bolting gooseneck?

    I thought I remembered a thread from a couple years ago describing how to replace the gooseneck riviets with bolts. My rivets have loosened up & I suspect the holes in the lower mast section may have some corrosion so thought bolting would be best. Just in case I decide to re-rivet, what is...

    Finn vs Laser -- Gulf Coast Masters Challenge

    There is a Sheraton 4 Points on the beach that is only about 10min from the club and there is a Fairfield Inn in Shalimar - about 10min the other way. Likely can find lots of condos at vrbo.com

    Pointing, tacking in strong wind

    Somebody said it above, but I'll reiterate it because it is THE most important thing -- you have to keep the boat flat & the only real way I know to do this is to keep your head out of the boat, so you see the puffs coming and ease the sheet before they hit. Once the puff hits its too late to...

    Laser Training Manual

    Again I'll lobby for somehow getting this type of info up on this site or the laser-na site. There is so much good info avail if you just do a search and aggregate the best pieces. Problem is its just too overwhelming for the new sailors. It should be pretty straightforward to put together...

    Laser Training Manual

    This is the kind of stuff that we should have on our Wiki. Someone recently posted this link to DrLaser stuff on a web archive. Lots of good stuff here. Looked at some of the pages and did not see any copyright statement that would prevent you copying it. I think as long as you properly...

    best way to store a sail

    So actually I am curious. IF you have a garage that you are storing your mast/sail in; IF you have help rolling it so you get it rolled evenly; What is the harm in keeping the sail on the mast? In salt water I can see a downside being that you can't very easily rinse out the lower section and...

    best way to store a sail

    ha !! If you search on this topic you will find some food-fights. But I think everyone will say the sail should be dry before putting it away. Me - I am pretty cavalier with my sails, but I don't finish very well so don't listen to me. Read the threads and enjoy the fun :)
