For those Laser 2 fiends, a brand new Laser 2 Regatta has come up on a New Zealand selling site.
Quite cool to see it in original condition!
My 2006 UK boat had the same and ive seen it on other boats too. Spoke to an Olympic laser sailor and she said its typical of some of the older (not that 2011 is old) but just reflects building standards of the time. My 2019 boat doesnt have it at all
I have the Laser branded tiller extension and love it but have noticed its sits a good 2 inches above the traveler cleat and gets caught. Anyone else had the same issue? I willl attempt to sand it this weekend.

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.
