    laser ii rudder head

    I am trying to figure out a rudder for a project dinghy. It is a 15 foot dinghy, and the rudder that is on it is incorrect. However the current setup is similar to the laser setup, but the distance from the bottom of the top pintle to the bottom of the lower pintle is larger than the laser...

    1980 laser with XD upgrades

    I bought this boat around a year ago, and the hull is in great shape, does not take on any water at all!! It has a mast step repair plate on the deck which was there when I bought it. It is very solid and at least it is one headache you will not have to worry about. I changed the lines, and...

    compact oar storage?

    I know most will probably say they never carry an oar, but the lake I sail on is very shifty and it can go from 12 knots to 2 in a blink of an eye, you can go out at 8am with great wind, sail for 2 hours and all of a sudden it is glass. So I always carry a collapsible paddle. In my Raider I...

    limits on class legal?

    I am probably going to upgrade some of the controls on my 1981 laser to the newer style. Looking on the intensity sails website, I see alot of good stuff but alot of it they say is not class legal. For example, the base for the two blocks that gets mounted to the deck behind the mast. They...

    trailer for laser

    The laser I bought is a 1981, and the trailer it came on supports the main portion of the boat with two lengthwise boards that pivot when the boat is off the trailer. Well, after years and people probably overtightening the straps the hull has an indentation on eitherr side where the boards...

    rudder question, what is my rudder from?

    Last year I bought a complete rudder assembly off E-bay for my sunfish. All the hardware is correct and it works fine but it is longer, it is like 38 inches long instead of the 25 inches it should be. It seems to work fine, but I am curious as to what it might be from.

    sail question

    Out of curiosity, I bought a sail off e-bay last year brand new. It is the one pictured in my picture, a white and blue one. I did this before I found out about Intensity sails. Anyway, where I sail the wind is typically very light, which is fine for my wife but I am a big guy so every bit...

    tiller extension

    well, after sailing quite a bit with my wife's sunfish I have come to the conclusion that I do not like the stock tiller extension, I think it is a bit too long as it seems to be in the way by about 5 inches or so when I am seated on the side of the cockpit. I also do not like that it only...

    daggerboard up or down...

    Okay, what is the correct time to run the daggerboard all the way down and partly down only? I would guess that all the way down would be in a broad reach, and up as much as possible would be downwind, but I am not sure. Help!!

    water in the hull

    okay, after a couple hours in the water, calm water, not much over the top of the hull I had quite a bit of water in the hull. I cannot see any visable place where water is getting in. Ideas? I am thinking I will reseal all hardware and maybe along the underside of the rail?
