Here is another that I have now confirmed. We had a Laser (sold last month - 14XXXX) that had Hi Tech next to the main sheet block and then stickers on the hull side as well. No other differences to a 'normal' Laser. This made me think it was just someone putting stickers on. I just saw an...
Thanks Lali, thought as much.
It is an Aus hull but I got the cover in the UK before I returned. Just got the boat unused but built in 2019 (216XXX) from a national team sailor so the sticker on the back is 'High Performance New Zealand'.
I got a new boat this week and have put on a UK cover.
Any ideas what the flap on the back is for? Is it just for the top section to hang out the back if you wrap the sail around the mast etc?
Struggling to find a stacking strolley in NZ as the local stops have said they cant get a local builder to do it. They are only offering ones now with a large gunwale support or foam underneath.
I quite like the UK designed ones, similar to this...
heading across the other side of the world and shipping some stuff but thinking about taking my new centreboard as checked luggage for a number of reasons (safety, impatience, customs thinking I am importing goods).
i have kept it in its box from LP which has polystyrene on each end but...
The sails are probably the most polarizing thing due to how long they last and the various options available.
I keep an eye out on FB for second hand ex-pro ones but I have seen some recently advertised for £50 less than the normal RRP...doesn't make me want to buy them second hand :D.
I have a dolly which is made by Practic but I believe it to be an older model.
The front bow holder is very old and wont sit on a straight angle so I am wanting to replace it. I see some newer models here: TRD Practic Laser trolley set-up
Does anyone know of any European stockists...
Thanks, knew you would respond :).
Sails I want are here:
Laser Radial Sail = £399
ILCA 6 Sail - Class Legal - (compatible with Laser Radial) | Dinghy Sailing at sailboats.co.uk = £500
Both are reputable sellers so makes it confusing ;)
Nice work on the Bianco!
Well, I have always sailed Lasers but have been 'out of the loop' for a year and am blown away whilst looking at new gear. Havnt had to do it for awhile so am stumped. I have tried to research this but still have some concerns, which I might have the right answer for already, but want...
The Graffiti! So happy to have seen a photo. Thank you for that. It still blows my mind I saw one all those years ago still in a box that it came brand new in. Wonder where it is now.
Thanks for all those photos, a few models I had not seen before!
Interesting about flipping them not legal. I did it on my old Laser but didnt have to go through any major certifications..
One thing I will say though is that my steering got a lot nicer after they were flipped and the rudder was a bit higher. I highly recommend forking out the relatively...
Wow you are right!! I had not seen that photo. I cannot believe I forgot about that, I clearly remember seeing them with the Le Merdien hotel stickers growing up. They must have removed all the stickers afterwards.
