    Looking to put a fair price on an older Laser

    If the hull is terminal then just look for a bare hull and swap the bits over, usually plenty of those around.

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

    Easy design to copy, just ask a local trailer builder to make you one.

    Laser repair question

    I have seen lots of lasers with these hull deformations but none so far where it has caused a problem. Fibreglass is surprisingly flexible if pressure is applied over time in a warm environment, unless there is any cracking ignore it. they may even disappear once you have a better trolley for a...

    Foiling thoughts

    There is a new Italian rowing boat class using laser hulls, even a ripped out mast step would still work for that.

    Hole in hull under mast step

    Looks like it has worn through the mast tube, putty glue and the whole of the mast step, repair is better done with epoxy resin if you can get it. It is really important to get the area dry as well because that hull is going to have a bucket full of water inside despite your best effort to drain...

    Laser Cockpit Autobailer "Not class legal for racing" . . . What?

    Logically with over 200,000 lasers built how many of the surviving hulls are ever likely to sail in an "official" event? I suspect the answer is a very small proportion therefore the market for budget price replica kit must be considerably larger than for the premium priced class legal gear.

    One like that just sold locally for £150, pale green colour though. I had one of those centreboards once, you could have beaten an elephant up with it.

    Another mast step repair thread :)

    One other thing that just came to mind, nothing wears out a laser mast step faster than getting sand in it! Steve

    Another mast step repair thread :)

    APS gone? That's a real shame mind you I have not bought anything from them since they went over to expensive courier shipping. When they used the US post global shipping pack ($9?) it was worth buying half a dozen mast wear strip packs even in the UK.

    Another mast step repair thread :)

    Best long term solution is to add the wear tapes to the mast (cheap from APS in the USA) and a sacrificial plastic disk dropped into the bottom of the mast step, result is no wear in your laser mast step ever!:) The mast leans a bit towards the gooseneck because of the weight of the rig so...

    Another mast step repair thread :)

    It has probably worn through the bottom of the mast step as well, I usually cut a fibreglass disk (sanded smooth) out of the bit of deck removed for the hatch hole, pour in about 25 ml of epoxy resin and drop in in. The epoxy levels out the bottom of the mast step plus fills any cracks and the...
