Wayne is (way) more knowledgeable regarding the issue you raised, but my take on it is that you just can't make such a general statement.
I don't think there is any evidence to support this. Why do you believe that?
This would be a good question for the designers if you attend the next Laser Performance open house tour.
Yikes, The school's boats are broken. I wonder why they're blowing it off rather than fixing things right?
- ...the one big difference I did notice is that the old hull leaks water into the hull around the metal edge band. He told me this was common with the old boats due to the heeling if the boat isn't sailed flat.
- Does anyone know what year the new rolled edge hull came out?
Sounds like a devoted instructor. Perhaps his students will pitch in to help maintain the equipment so future generations don't go away with the misperception disrepair is commonplace with sailing.Wayne,
His sailing school is a small one-man opperation and he has about 6 or 7 sunfish, so to be honest I only saw 2 of them. Being that his class is a 2 day weekend class for $150 and nothing but novices use the boats I don't see him getting them fixed, as he only teaches on the weekends and every other week he instructs wind surfing... If one thing is for sure it is a testiment to the unsinkablity and durability of the fish!
