    Is this a good deal?

    Be aware. Boats from that vintage like to delaminate. Things to also consider. Boats that old have the old shool rigging. If you want to start racing, it's going to cost you around $6-700 for a vang and other upgrades. If you go look at it, walk around and hit the deck with the butt of your...

    Exercises specifically for 'Mature' Laser sailors

    I'm 51, and re-started the Shawn T Insanity workouts in December. I sailed in our annual "Rock the Ice" here in Dallas. It blew like crazy (largest puff clocked in at mid-40's!), and for the first time ever, I didn't want to curl up in the fetal position when I got off the water. Lots of...

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

    I haven't but here in Dallas, TX. The fleet has built wooden widgets that, so you can trail them deck on deck. That way, you can have a single stack. Not the best solution, but it seems to work Sorry, I don't have any pictures.

    Looking to put a fair price on an older Laser

    Yes, the market is a bit nutty right now. I'm seeing boats go for more than I would ever spend on them. I recently purchased a boat to flip, and it sold for more than the exact same boat I sold 4 years ago (mine was sail number 182941) did. There are still deals out there. I'm just conveying...

    Looking to put a fair price on an older Laser

    For a vintage boat like that... If in good shape with some additonal pieces, you can probably get $1000- $1500. The market for used boats is pretty hot at least here in Texas. Maybe list for $2000 and see what happens. It's definately going to be a started boat for someone.

    Laser 4.7 for 110 pound teen?

    My kid raced here in Texas. Sell your full rig. Keep the radial and buy a 4.7. We would pick the rig based on the forecast for the regatta. If it was a coastal regatta and blow with big waves 4.7. Light on a lake, Radial. Don't buy a fish. Laser is the way to go! Lots of lightweights...
