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.
