    Does your dinghy have a name?

    Landlocked... Because, well, I live in South Central Indiana.

    fake lasers?

    And the Contender... Don't forget about the Contender!
  3. Wow... Maybe the Aero will steal a last minute victory.
  4. Hey Kim... FUCK YOU. How prey tell are people who, like me, are 194 cm tall and 110 kg supposed to adapt? Cut off our legs? I guess we're not "relevant" to sailing.

    What people ask for and what they sell for are two different things.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    I think anyone who mentions libel on S.A. should get the immediate ban-hammer.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Let's take the music to the land where all future lasers torches will be built... Please... no more Bieber... it's just wrong.

    The VX Evo

    Things have evolved. 3 different main sail sizes can accommodate a larger weight range. Like the Laser, Laser radial and Laser 4.7? Three different starts? Like the Melges 14 5m,7m,9m sails... Like the RS Aero 5m,7m,9m sails... Seems to be a trend.

    The VX Evo

    Everything I've read says the VX-EVO has a centerboard. Please post a link where it says it's gone to a dagger-board.

    The VX Evo

    Ok thanks, that's probably where i stopped reading. Where does this thing fit in compared to the similar devoti and rs100? Well for one the Devoti D-Zero and the RS100 are both dagger-board boats... The VX Evo is aimed at a larger helm. There's many other differences but I figured you stopped reading at the second sentence.

    The VX Evo

    LOL... it's a centerboard boat.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    The sun hits his eyes beaming through a crack in the ceiling. How long have I been sitting here??? Getting to his feet he realizes that the multiple shandys before starting that last repair job might not have been the best idea. The smell of resin is strong in the air. I dreamed all that laser legal bullshit??? "That's nuts!", he exclaimed as he walked out into the fresh air. Hey... nice breeze! He grabs his sailing gloves off the nearby table and shuffles off to the lake. Only to realize that the lake is all dried up and it wasn't a dream after all.

    The way this thread is going I hope the case is never resolved. Suit, countersuit, delays... take it to the Supreme Court baby!

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

It's sad, but it is just time to go to a new owner. I have the sails and all spars....they need some refinishing.
