    best way to fix the top of the mast step hole?

    I would but my son already went to fixing it last night, ground the area down an laid down three layers of glass. Gotta love it when a 17 year old does all his own repair work :-) I will post pics today of the progress.

    best way to fix the top of the mast step hole?

    Thanks, I figured it was something like that. He just finished a full year of hard racing with a bunch of races in the gulf so the boat had lots of stresses.

    best way to fix the top of the mast step hole?

    After each day of racing my son's laser would end up with about a quart of water in the hull. We finally think we tracked it down. The bubble test showed bubble at the top of the mast cup right at the seam between the deck and the cup on one side. not a huge leak but we want to take care of...

    Can you car top a Laser on a Honda Fit?

    Digging up an ancient thread. I am wondering if this worked? I have an RV that I take to Sailing regattas and would like to tow my Honda Fit behind with the Laser topped on top of that.

    1979 Laser Restoration Questions/Thread

    I had a Laser about the age of yours. After going through the process of getting it up and sailing, the floor of the cockpit cracks and had huge soft spots on the floor. It was more trouble that it was worth for me. And my son was getting full bore into racing Lasers on the youth circuit so I...

    Hiking strap replacements

    Old thread, can someone take a picture of how the back hiking strap is threaded through the slots? For the front straps are they just crimped by the metal fittings?

    Mast support for trailering

    Yeah I saw that, but then this post threw me a little. thinking that maybe one side if the transom was more solid than the other half.

    Mast support for trailering

    I know this is super old thread. Question, is the left side of the transom reinforced? There used to be a motor mount on mine I think and was thinking I could mount a ladder where it used to be.

    New to me Capri 14.2

    Finally got Watermelon out on the water last night. Everything seems to work well. I noticed as one of the kids stood on the seat there was a bit of flex, is that normal? It feels solid to my hand but should I be concerned? Since it is a mod 1, should I consider reinforcing under the seats...

    My yacht club started the youth program, I was helping the kids with their boats.....

    I feel your pain, I am a Skipper of a Sea Scout Ship. We have many times that we go sailing and come back with something else is broken.... Eventually it ends. Maybe schedule a time to rig the boats up in a dry situation and go over them to inventory what is needed to be replaced?

    Fiberglass damage

    I use an electric leaf blower pointed at the drain plug a few inches away and it works fine. I don't cover the hole, I won't use a compressor for it IMHO. Yo don't need much pressure at all just a small bit to get the bubbles.

    Hiking strap bails

    My new to me Capri doesn't have hiking straps. I ordered a set which should so up soon. But I don't have any hiking bails to attach them. They are back ordered and will appear someday. Has anyone attached them with line instead? I figure I can use line to attach them while I wait for the...
