    XD vs. Old Style controls

    Great start on the 6:1 kicker and downhaul. Do you race or day sail? race - xd upgrade is basically required to be competitive. daysail - many cheap alternatives / work arounds. Here is a suggestion for an effective 6:1 that requires two lines, a block with single becket, and 2 small blocks...

    small car... car top rack??

    +1 Cartopper, +1 No damage to boat. Slight damage to car paint job though.... The bow and stern ties are cheap insurance, but not 100% necessary for short trips with good primary straps to the rack. Use $2 pool noodles or similiar to prevent the rack from grinding lines into the deck. Other than...

    Ever wonder why seitech wheels never come in the mail?

    This is completely true! I tried buying a dolly new and waited many weeks for stock to come in. The story was always "just one more week." The company I ordered through told me that they were always (and I really mean always!) on backorder and especially so during the sailing season. They have a...

    cunningham binding

    cunningham binding

    I have a 10:1 cunningham similar to the laser xD setup, except on the port side of the sail. The problem is that I have frequent difficulty easing the line. The primary appears to be binding between the gooseneck and the boom. Has anyone come across any tricks to prevent this...

    How to transport a laser???

    Having only cartopped since I bought my laser a couple years ago, I eventually developed a system that allows me to take the hull down single handedly in 8 minutes and up again in 12. At least, that's how long it took when I timed myself. The key is to support one end and move the other. Other...

    Laser Pico on our car

    I thought that the Pico and Topaz has a hard durable plastic type of hull that is not damaged as easily as glass hulls. The car is probably in more danger. I know it was mentioned that there would probably be 2 sailors, but here is possible procedure to cartop it by yourself as long as your...
