    Bottom hull filling with water

    As you can see in #6, there is no mast step or tube so it can't be from there.

    Bottom hull filling with water

    The hull is filling with water, but now I know that it's RAINWATER. How and where is it getting in when the boat is not even in the water? Through the bailer? Last time I checked it was a lot of water. How can so much water get into the hull when the boat is on dry land, rightside up?

    Bottom hull filling with water

    Here's what I mean by steel plate: And the sail number 3466. What year is this?

    Bottom hull filling with water

    Thanks for the reply. Two questions: When doing this work what's better or easier: boat right-side up or upside-down? 2nd: What is the mast tube? My mast is sitting on a steel plate.

    Bottom hull filling with water

    I was given an old laser and now found out that it's made in two parts - the top (cockpit) and bottom (hull). How was the cockpit edge sealed into the hull? There is nothing there now (I can actually move the cockpit out of the hull a little). Water is obviously going in through this gap...

    Laser2 mainsail halyard

    Just out of curiosity, since mine is wrong, if the mainsail halyard is inside the mast, how is the rope tied onto the wire loop in order to allow it to pass through the small block at the base of the mast? See pic#1

    The rope is 3mm. Is bowline the smallest knot that can be used?

    Wrong picture. On the other picture you see that I used an ordinary pulley that I had so your idea is great and works well except there's still the problem of getting the knot small enough to fit through the block. Obviously it doesn't with this one. Will it with the one that you suggested ?

    Laser2 mainsail halyard

    These are my final pics with a last few questions: 1. The mainsail - you can see there's a few more inches at the top, which I can raise. The rope attached to the wire loop of the halyard is through the jib winch right now just to hold up the sail. Even if I was able to attach a rope to the...

    Laser2 cunningham setup

    There's an upper "eye" and a lower "eye", if that's what these are called. From the "eyestrap" to the upper "eye", through the lower "eye ", into the cleat. Corrections??
