    Special Edition Lasers

    Here is another that I have now confirmed. We had a Laser (sold last month - 14XXXX) that had Hi Tech next to the main sheet block and then stickers on the hull side as well. No other differences to a 'normal' Laser. This made me think it was just someone putting stickers on. I just saw an...

    New cover - whats this flap for?

    Thanks Lali, thought as much. It is an Aus hull but I got the cover in the UK before I returned. Just got the boat unused but built in 2019 (216XXX) from a national team sailor so the sticker on the back is 'High Performance New Zealand'.

    New cover - whats this flap for?

    Hi All I got a new boat this week and have put on a UK cover. Any ideas what the flap on the back is for? Is it just for the top section to hang out the back if you wrap the sail around the mast etc? Cheers!

    Can I get a metal engineer to make me a dolly?

    Hi All Struggling to find a stacking strolley in NZ as the local stops have said they cant get a local builder to do it. They are only offering ones now with a large gunwale support or foam underneath. I quite like the UK designed ones, similar to this...

    Laser Cockpit Autobailer "Not class legal for racing" . . . What?

    The sails are probably the most polarizing thing due to how long they last and the various options available. I keep an eye out on FB for second hand ex-pro ones but I have seen some recently advertised for £50 less than the normal RRP...doesn't make me want to buy them second hand :D. I...

    Rapide are a good brand, unsure if they still do new though... A lot of second hand ones around that look perfect for the job :)

    Practic trolley - replacement parts

    Hi All I have a dolly which is made by Practic but I believe it to be an older model. The front bow holder is very old and wont sit on a straight angle so I am wanting to replace it. I see some newer models here: TRD Practic Laser trolley set-up Does anyone know of any European stockists...

    The Graffiti! So happy to have seen a photo. Thank you for that. It still blows my mind I saw one all those years ago still in a box that it came brand new in. Wonder where it is now. Thanks for all those photos, a few models I had not seen before!
