Other boats owned..

Thread starter #1
Hello, I am new to the Laser world, one week of sailing in it so far , but have a Sunfish, Sailfish (4 sale), and a Boston Whaler Harpoon 4.7. I really like seat of your pants type sailing, I don't race, just like going out when its blowing. What's in your fleet? I'm sure others have multiple boats.

Right now I have only my Laser, but would like to have a 2-man dinghy, I like the Fireball or possibly a 505, and would love to ultimately add a small keel boat to finish my fleet off, a J22 or J24 would be great, but finances may limit me to a Hunter 19, also got a nice fleet following up here.

I have two 125's, a 505 and a Laser. I also got a confession... Personally the laser is cool but the 505 beats the pants of it for pure fun.:D

Besides my RADial, I also have two kayaks: A Euro Cyphur kayak (old school 10.5' river runner like a Dancer, which I really don't use too much), and my mean machine kick-ass Perception Blaze 6.9 kayak (whitewater playboat that I use both on rivers and to ocean surf when we have decent surf on the Texas coast). :cool:

Shellback Dinghy, N10 (a.k.a. Parker River Turnabout, which has already been sold thankfully). I love my shellback even if it's not high-performance. Building something like that from scratch is an awesome experience I won't forget.

Between the two of us my husband and I have a Europe dinghy, two kayaks, an aluminum canoe, a small Boston whaler, a Starwind 223, and a Sea Ray powerboat. We also have a wooden Thistle in the garage that we are slowly refurbishing.

Only in our club races. It needs more than refinishing. We tried to launch it last year from the club hoist, and it promptly tried to sink! It's leaking at the trunk. We are lucky to be close to Great Midwest Sailing and we had Doug Laber look at it. He said we had two choices, either epoxy it or remove it and fix it right. We are opting to fix it right. In fact, I spent a few minutes scraping on it this afternoon (it makes beer taste better), and I'm wondering about the order of work. Refinishing or trunk work first? I'll probably ask over at the Thistle Class forum.
