    Spar tube diameter

    Hello all, I'm adding spar tubes to my trailer system. I'd like to put a full rig in each tube with enough room so I'm not cramming them in. I'm going between a 6" and an 8" diameter. What has been working well on other rigs?

    Lost The Edge....

    Help!! I've been an avid laser sailor for about 5 or 6 years now. Never a top level guy, but definately a weekend warrior. However, a few weeks ago in my frostbite sailing I had a awful crash and burn. To the point where I couldnt get the boat righted and had to be towed home. Since then, Im...

    Steady 20 right now...

    sailing is a disease to which there was no cure. I was awoken from sleep the other night by sounds of ratchet blocks clicking and sails luffing on the beach. I awoke and there were no boats around. Fell asleep and awoken by the same thing. It had been 3 weeks since I'd been laser sailing...

    Transporting a laser in the back of a truck, precautions?

    Rain... not a big deal. It's a boat.... its designed to get wet :D. However, how big is your bed? I have a full sized pickup wiht a 6 1/2 ft bed. I transproted my first laser from RI to MA with the transom up against the back of the cab, tailgate down, and lots of tiedowns. Even so, the bow...

    I would have hailed at about 8 boatlengths out. If he got into my comfort zone I would have tacked to avoid and protested.

    The Joy of Laser Sailing

    A slow reach home as the sun sets and the wind dies after a long, full, hard day of Laser sailing. Doesnt have to be racing... just has to be fun.

    North or Hyde

    This subject is re-discussed at least 4 times a year. Use the search function and you will find everything you need to know. I'm a very enthusiastic laser sailor who has tried both. North or Hyde... neither one has made me spring to the front of the pack. Unless you're a very top tier laser...

    Laser Clew Sleeve at APS

    I used it extensively on both my boats. I bought it as soon as it was released, as I like new shiney things. On my raceboat I went back to the velcro clew strap about 2 yrs ago. I wont go back. I still have the sleeve on my guest boat, but it's coming off soon. Reason I switched back: the...
