Just bought a 1980 laser 2

Thread starter #1
I just got a 1980 laser 2....i think, i noticed that the forestay is broken and the fitting that goes from wire to u bolt on front is missing. Does anyone have pics of this? Know where i can get a new one?

There's no fitting between the forestay and the u-bolt. They're connected just with a piece of rope. The Laser 2 forestay is just for holding the mast up when the jib isn't hoisted. It's not an adjustment and not meant to take any sailing loads.

How is the wire broken and where?
