Right next to your wanted ad? :ph34r::D
But seriously, might be tough to find. Several good lasers up right now, in much better shape, with parts available.
 

Thanks but I'm not looking for a project boat right now :).

Yes, but it was hiding behind my X-Yacht that I had previously misplaced...  :D

Someone saw the "wanted" ad I posted on Craigslist, contacted me about it, and we made a deal that evening.

Wow, that is good service.

Looks to be in good shape too, is it thawed out enough to sail up there by now? Enjoy!

It appears to be in good condition for a 41 year old boat and all spars, rigging, and the sail are in really good condition.  The transom fiberglass above the rudder gudgeon has some flex and there are crack in the gelcoat.  I'm planning to use it as-is and then decided if I want to do some restoration and paint next spring.

So where did the X-Yacht go?   How big was it?

In my imagination it is 46 ft.... sadly it doesn't exist yet :).  We're actually planning to make the jump to the dark side and looking for a Corsair trimaran for our family / weekend cruiser.  A fast trailerable trimaran and a Force 5 seem like the perfect fleet for us.  I do love those X-Yachts though....

I sailed my new (to me, it's a 1979) Force 5 for the first time this past weekend.  There wasn't much wind but it was still a great time!  I'm really looking forward to sailing this boat more!
