It was on my trailer, and we were stopped at a red traffic light, on the way home after a great day sailing on Tomales Bay, CA. A kid in the car behind mistook the accelerator for the brake in his mom's car. The car struck the Laser dead center on the transom, and drove it forward about 4 feet, taking out the front bow support of the trailer, and then the rear of the trailer frame buckled in and stuck into the smashed front end of the Nissan. I am so impressed by the strength and integrity of this 1981 Irish-built hull! A tiny biff on the transom, and a scratch on the bottom of the bow where it went through the trailer front support, and that's the extent of it. The trailer took a lot more damage. My wife worries that I sail alone a lot, and I always remind her the most dangerous part of the day is on the road out and back.
