The ultimate trailer-sailor! Very easy to singlehand.

For Sale: my prized 2001 Laser 2 hull with a carbon roller furling main. This was marketed as an "Escape Expedition 14.5' " with Gary Hoyt "Smart Rig" carbon fiber roller furling main mast. The hull is a laser 2, there is no jib and no stays. The boom is a separate J-shaped aluminum tube. The rig is very, very simple. The mast (with sail) is about 20lbs, so it's easy as pie to launch and step. Takes about 3 minutes.

Hull and rigging and rudder are all in good shape. I trimmed the dagger about a foot for better clearance when raised under the boom. See commentary in formus (ex: sailing anarchy) for others who have made similar modifications. Sail has a number of repairs, but gets the job done. Carbon mast foot was profesionally repaired a few years back, no issues.

Trailer-oversized Shorelandr steel with keel rollers and tilting function. Fresh bunks &carpet, new enamel paint, and registration.
