    On second look it appears to need a skilled craftsman to fix a hole in the bottom

    A 1997 Laser...never sailed! The epitome of a post-cure barn find. I feel like a wanna be car collector when I say that I want this boat and I want to mount it to the wall. 1997 Laser (not 1977) time capsule for $3,500

    Most? I've never seen one glassed in and I've played with a lot of them. Go back to what Mike Holt said, it's a pretty easy replacement.

    what is it?

    This was my guess. That this is the first new PStar out of the molds with Sune Carlsson in Sweden. You're looking at a nearly finished boat that's almost ready to be sprayed with Awlgrip.

    what is it?

    That happened to me with an Etchells at Shelter Island. The aft strap let go just as the boat made it over trailer. The boat was fine but people stood around staring until I started yelling that we needed to get the boat off the hoist entirely, not stare at it hanging by one. I also watched a Shields drop off the lift at Sail Newport...long drop and a scary one with the size of that boat.

    5o5 worlds

    We clearly need the 505 in the Olympics even though the class has avoided it. The 470 is old news in my opinion anyways. I've enjoyed following the Worlds and getting excited about my boat again. Waterat twin pole launcher and twin poles on the way right now!

    American Legion YC, Newport Harbor Feud

    Did you get any bowling in while you were there? I've never seen a YC with a bowling alley before. I'm not surprised to hear that a guy helped you liked that, the membership that I know, from the 210 class, have always been great people.
  12. You need to buy...sorry if my memory is incorrect, Jim Donovan's 20' sport boat that is incomplete and sitting in San Fran I think. Then get his molds and build six more. There was interest in that boat and maybe your group could be the spark plug for it. edit: Jim Donovan it is...here's the link:

    Self Christmas Present For Your Dinghy??

    I just bought Waterat 505 carbon double pole launcher and two carbon poles for my 505. Merry Christmas to that boat too. The 505 continues its massive upgrades in the Spring.
