I am looking for some help altering my road trailer.
I have a relatively small, light trailer that works well for the very small journeys I do. I have replaced the deck with a longer piece that now goes to the front of my trailer. Now I want to install some stone guards so I don't have...
Apologies for bringing up an old thread. I am looking into this as I and others have noticed that our new carbon ILCA6 masts seem to rub the mast step more than the original and also 'thicker' (i.e. the area rubbing is about an inch as opposed to a 1cm before).
I am now considering something...
Its been a long time since 2018 but I finally got a road trailer sorted that is perfect for what I need. Pic's attached.
Pic with the boat on is when I first got the trailer and after is when I have: replace tyres, replaced and extended the plywood decking, changed coupling to another size and...
Side note - has anyone managed to get "popped" plastic barrels out of their hull?
I have a hull that does not need an inspection port installed but the noise it makes when I flip it over for cleaning etc is very annoying! Always hoped some would shift towards the bung and could be vacuumed out.
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
Not sure why I can't find a previous comment online about this, surely someone has wondered before :D.
How do I replace a boom block? Do you saw off the old one and then is it a rivet that locks it on?
I want to upgrade the boom blocks on an old boom from the blue ones to the new black...
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?
