    Commissioning a 1988 Laser that has not been used in many years

    Absolute, talk to anyone of my F1 buddies, LOL. What if my top mast connection fitting has 3 rivets? Even more susceptible to breaking or is it more reinforced?

    Commissioning a 1988 Laser that has not been used in many years

    How would anyone (ILCA enforcer) know if there is a reinforcing sleeve or is a LP part or of a certain length? Take the boom apart?

    Commissioning a 1988 Laser that has not been used in many years

    Funny, I just bought a brand new sleeve (from a reputable laser parts website) and already put it in place, and it did not go past the mainsheet block eyelet. Should I be concerned???

    Help, mast step repair

    I'm in the same dilemma, and from what I have researched on many threads, this is what I think about your questions: 1. I'm going to cut out the donut from around the mast tube and replace with thickened epoxy, which should seal any cracks (assuming the cracks are around the base of the tube)...

    Parting out Yellow 1979 J/24

    Do you take Venmo, ApplePay or PayPal? I would think putting them in a bubble lined envelope would be best to ship. You can Email/Text me off the thread. protac@aol.com - 559-217-7189. Thanks a bunch! Sean.

    Rear quarter hatch hinges still good? If so, I will buy 2 of them $5/piece ($10 total) plus shipping. Please post a pic.

    Raptor Deck Non-Skid Coating Recommendations

    Anyone ever applied this non-skid deck material to their boat? If so, is it worth the $$, does it hold up, is it worth it to rehab an older deck versus KiwiGrip paint? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Sink Plumbing

    First picture: Top-Left side black hose comes from the manual pump (not pictured) next to the sink between the bulkhead, goes down to the bottom of the tank. Tank is a tapered piece of plastic to conform to the shape of the hull. Third pic shows the air-vent hose going from the back right side...

    Harken Vang mast pin size

    I just ran into the same problem, the new Harken vang block comes with a 1/4" diameter hole and pin, the lower vang plate on my mast is a 3/16" hole, so it doesn't fit. Thought about reaming it larger, but wanted to check the forums first to see if there is enough room to do so without the vang...

    Sink Plumbing

    I will try to post some pictures of my boat's sink/hose set-up. It is a manual pump process, which should be mounted between the bulkhead and the sink.

    Parting out 1978 J-24

    How much can you fetch for the Keel, and who are the prospective buyers? BTW, do you have the rear quarter hatch hinges on the boat you are parting out? Thanks in advance.

    Parting out 1978 J-24

    What do you do with the hull after you part everything out? Is there a market for a stripped out hull? Wondering if it would be worth parting out my J?

    Companionway questions

    Answer to A: It appears the previous owner (or someone before you) broke the original hatch piece that is supposed to slide under the big piece, and they just cut and affixed a piece of wood. The piece of wood is not a normal hatch piece. Response to B: I hope someone on this forum responds to...
