So my club had a silent auction and I won the bid on a laser. A older member said it was a special hull as it was one of the first lasers built, not too sure about that, but there's no hull number anywhere on this boat. There's what looks like a sticker on the back side of the tub that says, I think, performance sailing, Pointe Claire, Canada. The member said the hull is from the early 70's. I know it has several coats of paint on her as I'm sanding it down, going to prime and paint. The hull is in so, so, condition, lots of stress cracks and dings, the best part of the deal was the three different masts and four sails, two of them new, that the club had for the boat. Plan on getting her shaped up and maybe racing in the clubs weekly races. It'd be nice to know just how old it is.
