    Set of blades; Centerboard and rudder with bag.

    Set of good blades, about 4 years old. Very light use. Some scratches and very small dings, but nothing serious at all, these blades are good to go. Comes with a win design blade bag. No tiller, sorry. Located on cape cod. I could meet you in person if you are in new england. I can make it to...

    Laser Performance Factory Tour Photos

    You guys should seriously consider having a spin and buff again, it is a great idea. Maybe once a year have this open house week? Plus it is a good way to clear out all the extra stuff around the factory.

    Cars that can trailer Lasers

    Manual vs. automatic for towing is just about even, it is just a matter of preference. This is of course unless you are towing 20,000lbs+ in which case a manual is far superior, hence why 18-wheelers are un-synchronized manual trannys.

    Laser Winter Project

    The only info id ever really found was this (http://www.bertram31.com/proj/tips/re-gelcoating.htm) and it was helpful but it didn't go into enough detail for me. It just seems like all the posts and articles Ive read have different advice on different ways of spraying gel coat, different...

    Gel coating is starting to look a little better. But i still cant find good clear instructions of the whole process online, and suggestions? Would i only need a compressor and a paint gun?

    Laser Winter Project

    How does one paint the bottom with gelcoat? I've never heard of a way to apply it, it seemed like it could only be done in the factory and i could never find a way of doing it by yourself. Is it shot through a gun? How could i go by doing it? Ive done some small gelcoat repairs where you mix it...

    Laser Winter Project

    OK, I patched the boat up and I am done prepping it. It seemed the more time I spent working on it id find more areas that needed work. The boat is now ready for the next step: Paint. I already have a paint scheme in mind; I always liked the red lasers that vanguard made around 2004. So that...
