Snow...funny comment. I had one of these things...for a bit...glad gone.

Not even with *00 $coots in footwell...but thaT is me.

Must be fairly old boat not hung on trailer as should be...other things notwithstanding...no doubt particular craft was not race boat...but would or should make no diff, IMHO. Just not a Laser fan, even though I had one.

I like the Sunfish style daggerboard in the trunk. I bet that never stays down.
Is there over a grand, cash, sitting in the cockpit? Only way that thing would be worth $1800.

Be hard pressed to pay $500 for that vintage!

Value? One top section... Must be end for ended to be trusted

One rudder blade

The boom needs a reinforcement section and new fittings

The lower section may be fine but has an old fadhioned gooseneck and bang fitting

Rudder head may be good.

A few screws and clevis pins

Lasers originally had mahogany DB and rudder blade, same shape as current ones.
Yes, totally aware of that, but look at the image, it's not a Laser daggerboard.

had to blow the pics up to get a closer look. Holy crap, you're right. Wood sunfish board has little value, whoever buys the wreck is going to have to drop a couple hundred into buying a laser board.

I would guess, if early hull etc, might be decent and no delam, save looks to have been stored with hull pressure on trailer.

If trailer is included, $500 plus the work Gouv notes, boat might be decent screw off rig...maybe even racer...what do I know?

Course ya gotta be there and know Lasers etc.

Now I thought the originals had mahog daggers too and mahog footwell rails...but not really Laser-privy.

Laser daggers are that spendy?

Might have to do work to make it work or build new dagger but, doubtless, there are others around for less moola.

Might be why Performance seems to be scuttled.

Laser centerboard a cost a couple hundred in the mid Eighties.

No idea how much they cost now, or if there are any class legal new ones available outside Australia.

That's more what I was thinking, that's why I said over a grand. Those older boats just aren't worth much when you can get a much newer and nicer one for not much more. Supply and demand and all that.

Those scow Moths were pretty fast. Later ones had racks on them. Fully-battened high aspect large roach main, catamaran style. I believe they were a little bigger than the sails US Moths allowed....85 sq ft vs 75. Rig differences kept the Australian and US fleets separated for a long time, until they finally came to an agreement and formed the International Moth Class. There's a FaceBook page for Scow Moths, based in Japan? They seem to be popular there.

Worth clicking link for many vintage and current photos.
