    Attached air flow

    I have tell tales a few inches back from the luff and also on the leach. Most of the time I can get good flow on the luff or the leach, but rarely do I get good flow on the luff and leach at the same time. Any ideas about what I am doing wrong?

    Preparation time

    I keep my Laser by the water on a dolly. I have it covered, with boom all rigged. It still takes me a good 30 minutes of hard work to get the boat off of the dolly, sail on the mast, mast in the boat, sail attached to the boom, and the other miscellaneous adjustments needed before actually...

    Auto bailer issue

    I bought and installed an auto bailer, but the cockpit keeps filling with water. No matter how I adjust the rubber plug, water comes in. Is there a trick for making this work?

    Sponsors on sails

    Can you print on the material that people use for chafe protection on genoas and mainsails where the sails hit the spreaders and stanchions? I material should not come off the sail and is pretty white.

    Water in mast

    Thanks I don't remember this issue from when I used to sail the boat, but obviously it is part of sailing it. It makes sense that water would get down into the mast step.

    Water in mast

    I have finally gotten out on the water and it has been a fun as I remember it to be. I have noticed that every time I pull the mast out of the sail, water comes out to the lower section of the mast. I have kept the boat pointy side up so the mast has not been in the water. Any idea where this...

    Daggerboard drag

    Thanks. It is the original brake that came with the boat 30 years ago. I will replace it with the $7.00. I have also read bad things about the MKII version of the brake.

    Daggerboard drag

    I am rigging my boat and am up to setting up the daggerboard. Is the part in the attached picture supposed to be dragging on the daggerboard to help hold it in place? If so, how tightly? Does mine look too worn out? Am I doing something wrong, because it is not really doing much and if I pull...
