    waterlogged laser question

    update, I picked it up and it feels normal weight.... so I adopted it. Hate to see it in the landfill...

    waterlogged laser question

    to be honest, as a proud owner of a pearson laser... even a waterlogged frozen boat might have a better deck than came with my pearson!

    waterlogged laser question

    Hi Folks, I friend recently discovered an old beater laser under his cottage and he wants to give it to me for free. Hull number is 102xxx, so later Hawkesbury I think. "ZFS" He said "feels like it weighs 300 lbs". I think this means that the boat must have soaked up a lot of water, and deck core must be completely waterlogged. I myself cannot pick it up because I broke my leg skiing... another story! In Canada... so, must have frozen. The hull deck seam is about 50% split open. Here is my possibly idiotic question: If I accept this free boat, with all the parts, and dry it out for some number of years, and repair the deck-hull seam.... will the resulting boat still be scrap because the foam cored deck will be delaminated? (freeze thaw etc) I really don't know how waterlogged foam behaves below freezing. Think free boat, useful in the dinghy progression from open bic to byte to laser.... not a regatta winning rocket. cheers.

    Laser 2 spreader advice/help please

    Hi, On my laser 2 there is a plastic insert that fits into the spreader tube, to capture the diamond wire. This one looks like metal. Does anyone know a part number for such an end cap? My boat is missing one. thanks.
  6. Hi, I'm, looking for some info on the Byte aluminum mast sections. Hope someone knows some answers- * is the lower section straight or does it come with a bend? * are the sections made of the same tube as the Laser? Wall thickness? I have an older Byte that I want to ensure is rigged right. When I got it both the top and bottom sections were bent. I straightened the lower section and switched the top section end for end. In retrospect, I've thought - hey what if the bottom section was supposed to have a bend it in? Top and bottom section appear to have the same wall thicknesses as the laser, but I'd like to know for sure. thanks Steve
