    Draft stripes

    I have not sailed my Laser for many years and am thinking about adding draft stripes to my old sail so that I can more easily see the effects of my sail trim adjustments. Once I "master" the settings again, or if I want to race, I would probably buy a new sail (although the new sail would have...

    Ah, that makes sense. What about for practice though?

    Draft stripes

    Why? Don't they help you see where the draft is in the sail and help to determine how much draft you have? Why did you comment specifically about on the starting line? What about draft stripes on a practice or recreational sail?

    There is definitely something inside the boom. It starts about 6" in from the end. I assume that is the tube that you all have been talking about. Yeah!!

    Commissioning a 1988 Laser that has not been used in many years

    Why do I need to flip the top section of the mast if there does not appear to be anything wrong with it? Do I need to put the boom sleeve in if I don't plan on upgrading the vang?

    OK. It needs to get a bit warmer around here before I can do that. I will send pictures in the spring.

    Commissioning a 1988 Laser that has not been used in many years

    I own a 1988 Laser and have not sailed it in about 20 years. It has been stored on the trailer either indoors, or under a covered deck, or for a short period outside but covered. I am finally in a position where I have time to sail it again, but want to make sure that everything is still in...
