    Example of Perfect thread: Removing Registration Numbers

    Be carefull with the hair dryer... if you hold it directly onto one spot for a long enough period of time you can cause discoloration to the fiberclass. Although I have found the hairdryer, an old credit card and good old wd40 or mineral spirits works great. Good luck.

    Old Vang/New Vang

    I know that Robert is always using other boats. In the laser 2000CD he is using a rental. It's possible he was using a lender. After all at his level I doubt it really matters.... especially as much as he's sailed the boat. -K

    Best place to buy a new Laser sail? (USA)

    ;) Oddly enough 40 miles out to Amityville (long island) and then the 40 miles back isn't really "local"; especially as it relates to the gas and time I'm going to spend. Local to me is maybe 20 miles one way....all highway....maybe. I doubt that they are going to give me such a great deal...

    Best place to buy a new Laser sail? (USA)

    Could be free at the local shop wouldn't matter because I don't have one around me. So for all intents and purposes the 483 I'm going to get online is local .... not just for me but for alot of people. -K

    What chance do we have in the worlds?.....

    Campaigning a laser at that level is not the norm. The sponsorships are usually reserved for those truely talented and skilled. Not saying not to try just a little taste of reality before you quite school and run of to be a pro sailor. :) -K
