    The head Mum says "Don't Say Nuthin and keep yer big trap shut"

    I don't think being a mushroom would be so bad if being a mushroom would get me a new Laser. Oooops, sorry I shouldn't have mentioned the problems associated with getting a new Laser or even new Laser parts. Please disregard this post and/or forget that you ever read it. Thanks, BLS ("B"oatless...

    What to do in the winter?

    I'm originally from New Hampshire and when I lived there my house was a 5 minute walk from a lake. I have sailed a friends iceboat a few seasons and it was a total blast! It's a little difficult doing that here in Puerto Rico, not many lakes freeze over during the winter but then again there's...

    I have no problem with that, just make sure that you bring your Laser.

    What to do in the winter?

    You could ship it down to me. I'll keep it sailing and in good shape all winter. 8-)

    Another twist in the UK tale

    I was really looking forward to buying a new Laser and then start my sailing adventures. Now I think I'll wait a little longer and purchase an A-Class or F16 catamaran. I had high hopes for owning a Laser but the class as a whole has been a complete disappointment for me. I can't even buy a...

    Finally got the boat out

    Yes, boats can be sad considering how some can be neglected after just a few sailings. Thanks for sharing the photo of the ducks, it's very nice.

    Finally got the boat out

    Glad you enjoyed the sail. The first time I sailed a Sunfish was in 1972 and thinking about it now brings back good memories of good times and good friends.

    10 Year Anniversary Review: How Did That Go For Lasering??

    I agree. I didn't mean to point out all the current issues with the Laser Class and I am sorry for causing any drama and unwanted attention. I will just have to wait for someone in the US to decide to start making new Laser boats again. Maybe I'll just forget about Laser and buy a Formula 16 or...

    Hey birdhouse, It's your boat, do what you want to it and then pay the consequences and/or reap the benefits. Best of luck.

    10 Year Anniversary Review: How Did That Go For Lasering??

    You are right, Laser sailing and racing is alive and well in the US. In Puerto Rico there does not seem to be much going on as far as events are concerned, just a few a year. http://www.sailingpur.org/NewPages/Calendar2012-2.htm So now, where can I get a new boat?

    10 Year Anniversary Review: How Did That Go For Lasering??

    Hello Everyone, I'm new to Lasers and I was hoping to buy a new Laser boat and have myself some sailing fun but after a little investigation of the Laser scene it seems that Laser is in crisis and all but dead or well on it's way. From what I have been reading it seems to me that the only boats...

    How is a practice sail different....

    I have seen practice sails being sold on the internet. What is the difference between a practice sail the sail that comes with the boat? Is the cut different? Is the cloth different? Or is it just not a legal racing sail? Thanks.

    Bow mounted camera - pics

    Nice video. I like the way the camera always stays level, it's a little different than most of the videos. It really shows the motion of the boat quite nicely. Great job.

    Taking on water

    Torrid is correct. Don't put too much pressure into the hull, you can easily create a much bigger leak problem. Just hold the vacuum exhaust close to, and pointing to, the drain plug.
