    Trailer question

    I have a single boat trailer I use for my Sunfish and Laser. I was wondering if you think I should make a changes to make the trailer work better for the boats. I do want to swap out the carpeting to marine carpet. Is there a better way for the bow vs. a standard bow stop? I don't want to go...

    picked up a Laser II a while back

    I saw someone is selling Laser II parts in the Laser sale forum. Maybe you can get some parts you need.

    Got it Home...Now in the "What Did I Get Myself Into" Phase

    I wouldn't teflon tape it. You will be removing it often.

    There is some moisture inside. I have been opening the port and closing it at night, because of potential thunderstorms.

    Got it Home...Now in the "What Did I Get Myself Into" Phase

    For the drain plug, I went to the local fastenal store and they hooked me up with a stainless bolt: 1/2" diameter UNC13 thread . I think that was correct. Someone previously said they found them in nylon which would be cheaper and probably work better.

    OK, internal video here : Video. Since I can get to it. I feel like I should put a glass layer around the trunk on the inside and over the cracks at the front and back. It looks like someone put a glass strip on one side of the trunk previously. Here are the pictures: Front of trunk: Back...

    OK sanded away the old fix. It looks like seam around the trunk and bottom of the hull is crappy. The cracks at the front and back are exposed now. Later, I will try to get picks from the inside. The forward crack has movement if i put pressure on either side of it. Maybe a boot for your...

    Thanks, I will sand away and file it. Do you think I should try to take pictures from the interior? Or not worry about it.

    OK, here are more close up pictures. There is already an access port installed just forward of the daggerboard trunk. So, I think I should be able to get to the inside of the trunk. At least the backside to the forward side of the trunk also the starboard side, I don't know if I can reach...

    OK, cleaned it up a bit and it is not good :-( How hard is it to fix this? I am assuming in need to get inside from the access port and lay glass and epoxy to the front and back of the trunk. What do I do on the outside of the hull?

    Today, I got a laser for a deal I couldn't refuse. My plan is to make this a recreation laser for days when I just want to sail around. The hull ID is PSL691401078 and is old and was sitting in someone's backyard. It needs some work, I am hoping not too much. The cockpit floor seems to be...

    Hull fixing tips/advice

    Thanks, my son did the bulk of the work. He doesn't want to put it in the water it looks so nice. There is one little dine size spot near the back that you can see the marine tex from when he finished. I know it is fine, but would it be a mistake to paint on gel coat just over that spot or...

    Sad day

    Well, we were blessed with an opportunity to purchase a much more recent boat that will work out really well for his racing that he is just starting. Tomorrow is his first Laser regatta. I will see if I can get any of Fred's time to look at it for advice to fix the other hull. It won't be a...

    OK thanks. I will talk to Fred. I have a feeling that the answer will be the closest dump is about 5 miles away :-(

    It is a 1974, and he races. So I think it is signs of age. I would like to fix it properly and the boat will be a non-racer for his old dad.
