    How sailors drive

    I have never gone out in my car and not exceeded 85 mph, it’s a problem

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    I just re read that reply and realized that I worded it as though I was uninterested in the boat. How much would be considered reasonable?

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    Because it is, in normal use terms, more durable than fiberglass, also, the interior of the JY is made from fiberglass

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    Also, I live in the Hudson Valley, NY so unless it is reasonably close I can’t pick it up

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    I don’t know what prices they go for, the reason why I said I wasn’t in the best position right now to purchase is because I can’t offer all that much

    Racing/family dinghy

    If you think you would like a 29er, just get a 49er while your at it, novices will always learn, used 49ers can run as low as 4K or lower depending on condition

    If someone wanted, they could put cushions in the 14 on the seats, as for the 15, comfort is not intended, fun, simplicity and speed are (relatively when it comes to speed)

    I bought a kit that included a sprit, spinnaker and mast mods too

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    The turbo has the same mast, I believe, there is a model called the JY15 Junior that has a smaller spinnaker and a beffier mast, overall, which boat is better overall?

    I get that, most JYs don’t have them, I was making the fact clear that mine has a spinnaker...

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    Right now I am not in the best position to purchase a boat, is it in New York

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    I own a 1995 JY15 Turbo Rig (Modified) and love it, I noticed that the JY15 has a Portsmouth Number of 91 and the Laser 2 has 92.5. My JY has a spinnaker, so it is faster than the number may suggest, so do you guys think it could beat a laser 2?

    Mine has been modified to fit a spinnaker, so it would most certainly whomp a 420, this summer I will rename it “Whomper” and seek out some 420s to test it on.
