    Yikes. He is legendary in both the Laser and the Aero classes. I his recovery goes well.
  2. Did Nasty sic his lawyers on whoever posted it? I guess that assumes he can still afford lawyers. I wonder if he reads these threads.
  3. I want to see the episode where they show up to collect the millions due to Bruce Kirby's heirs.
  4. A non-sailor bought up Laser Performance in Europe and Vanguard in the US. Why a non-sailor would do that, I do not know. He already had some shady dealings with his other companies. He proceeded to alienate multiple class associations, cut back on distribution, and stop paying his bills.

  10. I feel for the Sunfish folks as they are stuck with LP. However, the TLC guys brought this on themselves.
  11. I have used one with my Laser for many years at two different houses and three different cars. I have had no problems with it. On the other hand, I have found a boat on the trailer in the garage makes a very convenient workbench and storage space (no laundry). Kind of a pain if you actually want to take it sailing.
