Here's a recap of my recent mast step repair using the Diversified Fiberglass kit. I didn't find much online when I was preparing to do this, so thought I'd share. She's seen about 20kts so far and is rock solid.
I ordered the radial cut MK II sail from APS 1 month ago, but I haven't recieved it yet because there is a backorder on the battens. At this point, I'd just buy them from somewhere else, where'd you get them?
Does an autobailer significantly effect boat speed? I'm trying to make an old '94 laser competitive (I'm the weakest link, but humor me). It has no autobailer, which doesn't bother me, but curious how important that is. My clumsy search yielded no answers.
To piggyback on this thread, I'm 5'7" and 155, and would consider myself reasonably athletic. I'm pretty new to lasers, and just ordered the new mk II radial cut standard sail. My question is, can I be competitive in the standard class (assume I can sail)? I'm gonna race either way, but...
