    Core material for deck

    Hi 49208, I remember, there was an instruction how to do such repair, somewhere at the former drLaser.org. Perhaps you, or the TLF-staff-team, could search for it (WayBackMachine)? Or is that instruction 'too old'? All I know, dr Laser is well and still is beating the waves successfully on his...

    It goes about the survival of the class..........

    Happy (5Xth) Birthday, Dr._Loser! You know, we both have become "the kings of pain" ... by our old hurt knee's ... if hiking out strong, on a tack, somewhere in force 5 ... or at mountain running (in your case) or ... by cross-country-biking (in my case) ... JAJAJAJA* Here is 'our' song...

    Battery Discuss

    Yup, TLF is a forum for Laserites (and K.-Torcherites). But that not means, all of the replies of TLF "guys" here aren't serious :) Reply #2 ("203": "... battery life increases ...") seems to be a "sort of" correct answer :cool: Ciao LooserLu

    Europe or Radial?

    It is untrue that the Europe dinghy isn't sailed anymore. About 20.000 sailors race or sail recreational the Europe today. I know the Europe well, a really nice boat to sail, but personally I don't sail her, as I am to long and to fat for her (otherwise, I would have had already changed out of...

    Outhaul

    That's the common experience. But, for now some years, I have worked on the problem of the "non slide"-effect of the clew-tie-down sleeve. Aft intensive investigations, I found a paste that works sufficient: It's called "Molykote DX Paste" of Dow Corning Corporation (Midland-Michigan...

    Thanks!Vice Versa! We live ~ in the same line of latitude (I am just some 100s of km to the east of you...) Northrhine-Westfalia (GER). You would be able to sail an 'original counterfeit Laser(TM)'(with BK(TM)-logo in the ISAF-plaque)...

    jeffers, I respect you, you know that. But just let him/her write, what happens behind the live TV. We all here have our own opinions, and discuss it here. Bradley or Merrily decide if our posts are against the forums rules etc.etc. If that what meetISAF is really true or not soon the...

    'meetISAF', I am not native english speaker, too. I really understand/know how difficult it is to translate into english. I am not able to understand any danish, to help. In my own opinion: Ignore comments here at TLF like jeffers just has done it to you, just report and just don't use bad words...

    All about to kick off....

    Done, Deimos! (->view attachment) It is relatively irrelevant to me, if one is an association-member or not, as long you love the same sport I do, too. But if you want to bring your sport forward, one can't do that only by sitting behind a computer and lament all day and night long in various...

    All about to kick off....

    ILCA’s actual statement says, they do not take party to no side of the builders (nor Rastegars network nor Spencers network nor Otani’s shipyard) nor B.K. etc. So? But to the other side, Jeff is officer at the ISAF, too -> Is ILCA in bed with ISAF because of that? And ISAF is who has the power...

    All about to kick off....

    Well, Torrid, replacing one builder to another, if the 1st mentioned do not work well, is only one tool of the game. BK just has done exact this …. and a little bit more (= changing the name, against of the will of many of the active sailing Laserites)! And ILCA? Well, the ILCA...

    All about to kick off....

    Thanks! From my over 35 years of sailing this dinghy I learned: There lives a kind of ‘genie in a bottle’ /ghost inside of the hull. Sometimes it screws me, but most times this ghost is indulgent if one understand its rules to play with. In days like this I remember well to an old article...

    All about to kick off....

    20.000 times already said here. I totally agree, Tillerman. It`s a bit like a fight of Vitali vs. Vladimir Klitschko... except that those both brothers made the wise decision: not to fight against each other! You know, all over the world, young gun or old fart, lady or gentleman...: we just want...
