    Nice Shiny Bottoms.

    Good stuff. I know the process pretty well. In the article it says "Remember that you are not attempting nor are you allowed to change the shape of your boat. This is a cosmetic repair, not a speed enhancement." What if your cosmetic repair is also a speed enhancement? Tricky.

    Nice Shiny Bottoms.

    Officially, what can I do (or not do) to the bottom of my laser and still remain class legal? Some local boats are seriously scratched up and we want to restore them to a racing bottom, but how do we do that without making any "alterations to the gelcoat", as stated in the rules. Seems like a...

    Is it just me or is Laser Performance causing drama left and right

    Those are good points, and I will say it again, I am frustrated with the class politics and have been for years. I am merely playing devil's advocate and trying to define what are legitimate complaints and what are not. It would be naive not to assume that purchasing parts from Australia...

    Is it just me or is Laser Performance causing drama left and right

    These aren't apples in a grocery store or spark plugs at Napa, they are custom built products that are being sourced from only one builder. Its not like you can go elsewhere when they run out, they are at the mercy of the manufacturer. I saw a change when they had trouble getting blades last...

    Is it just me or is Laser Performance causing drama left and right

    I completely agree. Nice rant Gouv. Although, I will add this just to mix things up a bit. I am aware of some long-overdue restructuring within the company. Changes abound, and with them will most likely be a change in inventory management. The company itself has been through quite a bit in the...

    humming centerboard??

    I imagine it is slowing me down quite a bit. I can try to sharpen the trailing edge but its not as if it is dull or warped. I haven't installed a new centerboard brake. I am stumped to be honest.

    GoPro HD Video

    Hi guys, I'm looking to attach a GoPro on the bow of my laser. What are people using for a mount? Obviously I don't want anything adhesive sticking to my hull. Any ideas? SD

    humming centerboard??

    I noticed a distinct humming sound coming from what seemed to be my centerboard. It would only vibrate when I was sailing close-hauled, full hike and full speed. It went away if I slowed down or changed my point of sail. I suspect a warped centerboard perhaps, or is it something else? Anyone...

    CARBON TILLERS

    I have been doing a lot of comparison shopping and forum searching for the best carbon tiller. I think it was pretty unanimous that the Acme Black Diamond Tiller is the best in strength and design. I waited for months to try and catch one used for sale, nothing ever turned up so I bought it new...

    Sea Dogs: Who has one? or more than one!

    Thanks, I'll let him know you said that. :p Yes, he loves to swim! Ever since he was a pup. Honestly, he is the smartest, kindest, softest little dog I have ever known, and he happens to be mine. He is a gift.
