MB - if you are still following this thread, please see my new thread 'AeroSouth Sunfish' components regarding the new rudder and daggerboards I am developing for recreational boaters. Fluid dynamics has been the focus of my 40+ year career, especially foil and wing design, which are essentially the same as a Sunfish rudder and daggerboard, in water of course, not air.
Hi there,
My name is Barry from Ireland now based in Arizona for a year. I am messaging about your laser advertised some months ago. Just wondering if it is still available and if you haveany more details on the colour of boat, sail number and pictures?

Let me know sure. My email if preferred is

If you are interested in a detachable Baby Bob bracket for your Capri 14.2 then send me an email to
Each bracket is individually hand-made and comes with all the essential stainless mounting hardware needed, shipped Priority Mail.

In addition, if you are considering making a hatch for the series one Capri, I have an aluminum hatch template that I finally constructed after revising multiple times to fit very well. I can send a template folded paper copy that you can trace on to your hatch material, this should fit very close and beats the hours of guessing of cutting cardboard or sheet metal.
$90 and $10 (Baby Bob bracket or Template) respectively delivered in the lower 48 states.
Hi! We bought a Hilu last fall. It took us a few months to get it back to designed configuration, a former owner (Bradley?) had reversed the hulls and put some blocks/cams in odd locations. We sailed it a few times in July in light winds. We have a sail ordered for it so that I can put the blue and yellow one back on my '71 Sunfish. E-mail if you have suggestions and tips for new Hilu owners.
If you can do $200 for the daggerboard and the sail, shipped to me at address below, I'm ready to buy. I can pay with Paypal of Facebook Pay.

Thanks Wardie, I agree its a good deal and I can do $250 Paypal. Can you take a few pics of the daggerboard? I'm only seeing the handle in the pic added earlier. For the sail, can you take it out of the box and shoot a pic or two of that both sides?
BTW, my cell is 205-601-1222 if you prefer to text the photos
sent pic of board Scott. Sail boxed and unopened. I believe wavedancer sold me the sail hes been a poster from a long time I trusted him on the sail.
are you still look ing for a j24? you should try southwestern yacht club, I know they have one that has not been sailed in a while. you could also ask mission bay aquatic center, they have 4-5. I race mine locally, we usually have 3 j24's racing pretty regularly. would be awesome to get more out there
Hey there. About a year ago you asked if a Capri 14.2 was still for sale. I had already bought the boat but am now willing to part with it. If you might still be interested please let me know.
Hi there. Not sure this boat is still available but if it is, would love to take a look and possibly take it off your hands.
Are you the same "tillerman" of that Sailing Anarchy Thread #2831 ? If so, I only want to let you know, that I really made the comparsion "Little Bonaparte" versus Mr. Michon. From my side: Shevy quoted me correct, absolutely! His reply #2830 and bis reply #2832 I confirm! Have allways an extra blow into your sail, all the best from GER (Northrhine Westfalia), Lu

Is your Laser that is for sale still available? We are actively looking and would like to purchase by this weekend. We are serious about a purchase (yours or other - depending on who still have their boat available). Like I said, we are serious about a purchase so we would appreciate your getting back to us as soon as possible. We are in London.
