    On and Off for hull cleaning?

    Try using Soft Scrub first. Apply it with a sponge and once you've got the hull nice and covered in foam and soap suds, let it sit for a 15 minutes. If you can do this in the sun, even better. Then Rinse off and repeat. Soft Scrub has bleech, so letting the suds sit gives the bleach time to do...

    laser inspection port 2001

    Personally, I would not cut anything into my boat untill it starts leaking. From experience and what other sailors have said, no matter HOW much silicon you use those things leak anyways. Is it possible that what you hear rolling around inside are the cubitainers (plastic flotation devices)...

    Reusable Spray Can

    I have used the Prevals with gelcoat and it was a major pain in the butt. I would seriously consider rolling and tipping Perfection or Awlgrip.

    Painting a laser hull

    Since I started my hobby/buisness One Design Retsoration where I restore Lasers, I have studied the class rules thoroughly and have asked many officals their opinions. What I have recieved is quite clear: If you have an older boat with defects that you would like to repair/restore then it is...

    De-powering a Laser Radial Upwind

    When they say cunningham they mean CUNNINGHAM!! When it's really blowing out there and I can't hold the boat flat I have it cranked on so the eyelet is at the gooseneck. If I know it's going to be windy out there, I'll rig the cunningham on one side of the boom so I can get it down even further...
