    Wow, I had a ride today on a Weta... I was impressed with this. Makes it really easy to sail very fast.

    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.
