    Complaint of theft on Laser Forum

    Friendly Dragon has reported a problem with a member, Neon. Friendly Dragon sent money for a sail, and Neon has disappeared without sending the sail. I notice that Neon has a number of items for sale in the Laser and Sunfish forums and the ads sound similar, new discounted product. It's not out...

    New non-legal Laser class name

    I suggest the Phaser or Blaser, or if the value of the boat plummets, the Loser Class. Lu could call his the Looser. ;)

    Racing Etiquette

    I was sailing my Laser in my club's Sunday afternoon races and after the start of the first race, I managed to get a small lead on the sailor next to me. He tacked away, for a minute, then tacked back. When he got within a few boat lengths of me, I tacked to cover him. He expressed some outrage...

    Forum member Marvin-Miller has suggested that we "pin" the best posts on various topics at the top for easy access. This is an excellent idea that will cut down on the FAQ's. I'd like suggestions for the best threads on mast step repair, hull fairing, trailering, etc. Please make thoughtful...

    visit to Opti plant

    I traveled to Chattanooga, Tennessee this week to pick up a couple of Oppis. No, that is not slang for Opti. These boats have plastic roto-molded hulls and hopefully, are durable as nails. We got a couple of them for our Learn to Sail program. See pictures from a tour of the factory here...

    Screws won't "bite" in grab rail installation

    We are sprucing up some old Lasers for our Learn To Sail program, and we took the grab rails off to paint. There were plastic inserts in the screw holes that we cut the heads off of and knocked out. Now when we try to install new plastic expansion inserts, they turn with the screws. They seemed...

    Review of WindMate 200 digital device

    What I look for in any new digital device is easy intuitive use. If I have to repeatedly refer to the instructions or get an 11-year-old to help me, I bypass the item in favor of old standbys. I got the WindMate 200, a digital wind indicator with a built-in compass, for the price of this review...
