    new paint job and cockpit drain plug.

    It would seem that a previous owner has put a transom drain plug into the hole where the cockpit drain plug should be :eek: ! So from here I should just plug the screw holes with fiberglass and install the new drain plug ?? anything else ? I will post pictures in the next coming week or so !

    new paint job and cockpit drain plug.

    It is the drain plug in the cockpit ! The one I currently have in is plastic and I would like to change that to have a brass one like you describe.the plastic one is held in with screws. the brass bushing simply just fit in the existing hole ? Held in there with the epoxy ?

    Trapped.

    Did I mention I was 15 :o ? I saw An iceboat for $200 here in ottawa and told my dad about it, He said he thought It was kinda dangerous,which kinda makes sense......I guess . Have you ever Ice-sailed before ? How popular is it ?? I've only really heard of it , But i've never really met anyone...

    Trapped.

    My first year of sailling and I think its great . However, I live in canada in the city and my boat is an hour away at our cottage. Meaning that I can only sail MAX 5 months during the summer(two months of which the water would be dangerously cold). I'm kinda tired of constantly reading about...

    new paint job and cockpit drain plug.

    I have an older laser and I would like to repaint it because presently it is speckeled white and red because the white paint has chipped off near the stern of the boat. I am hoping that in painting I will seal it up a little aswell , Is that a realistic hope ? Now about the cockpit drain plug...

    CrazyNorwegians out with a new extrem video

    This is awesome ! I tell my friends and people I know that I sail and they think " PIP PIP CHEERIO LETS ALL GET OUR CRUMPETS AND TEA AND GO SAILLING ON OUR YATCH" but Sailing a laser(as we all know !) can be pretty intense.

    it should be noted that I do not want to part with three hundred dollars , cause I know that they sell kits for this need precisely.

    revamping old laser

    alright so I have a laser( which I believe is from '85 but I could be completely wrong) and because it is older is not outfited with someway to adjust the outhaul and cunningham WHILE you are sailing. My instructor down at the sialling club explained to me that you can buy a couple pulleys ...
