    Check out Mersea trailers. They have six models of lowering trailers. If you don't feel like buying one, at least you can see how they handle the lowering functioning. https://www.merseatrailers.com/store/Lowering-Double-Stack-Trailers-c39433197
  2. I'm glad to see seven potential builders for the Laser. Just in the last few weeks, as the Laser District 23 Secretary, I pulled together emails from the four corners states and Wyoming, that make up D23. We have almost 400 email addresses. It's a testament to the history of the Laser class and I'm happy to have pulled all of that together and to now communicate more effectively with all of those sailors. We'll use the new D23 newsletter to share regattas, results, classifieds, and group purchase programs so that the Laser class sees new growth in 2020 and forward.

    We wouldn't own the land either as it's a state park. We plan/hope to sign an M.O.U (Memorandum of Understanding) which gives us enough time to amortize the cost over a number of years. After that point, we're in the black so to speak but if we were to ever fold up shop, the building would never to ownership of the State Park. We don't have a problem with that since the plan is to never go out of business but if we did, would we really care about who owned the building anymore? I can look into sending you the proposal. We also had an independent feasibility study done for the building.

    Timely article on Jalopnik. It's as if one of them saw this thread. https://jalopnik.com/the-honda-cbx-makes-the-best-noise-1841045327

    I want that trailer for my Moth! Looks like a drift boat trailer.

    @hommeliquide does it have to be temporary? You can buy pre-fab metal buildings for not too much more than two shipping containers and a roof. We have three shipping containers at Park City Sailing. Two are side by side and then there's a 4 meter gap between those two and the third so that we have a work space. We were going to mount a beam with a hoist in that gap and we got a quote on trusses and roof material to turn our three containers into a building but then we realized that a metal building was scarcely much more. That has the enviable solution of an office door and a 14' garage door to roll our J22s into, among other boats of course. Our proposal pdf is attached. If it doesn't show, I'll try again as a jpg. The containers can be seen to the North with their sail sun shades attached. Now they're to the South in that proposed location. PCSA_Proposed_Sailing_Center_2018-2.pdf

    A new Laser is what, $7300? This is more like half of an Aero.

    Apparently my wheels are Com-Star wheels. Too funny....I had no idea.

    What are the ComCast riveted rims? Here are the rims on my CB Cafe' project. I had them powder coated to match the ski brand that I was pushing at the time. Now I'm thinking about a color change...

    20+ Footer - Building in Hawaii

    I wish I wasn't stretched with new motors for my center console and a half dozen small sailboat projects. I'm in the middle of fixing a friend's Farr 30 in preparation for this Summer and it's given me the bug for a fun sport boat of my own.

    Agreed...the lessons I learned on a motorcycle helped me with my mountain and road bicycle riding. Looking where you want to go...etc.
