Speaking of how to sinking a Laser....about 4 years ago I was sailing my Laser one summer day and it was really blow'n.I was on a screaming reach when the wooden mast step support thingy came unglued and that mast went sideways tearing through the deck from port to starboard like a hot knife through butter.I never seen it happen.One second I was hiked out and the next I was in the water looking at my main sail and mast laying flat on the water beside the boat thinking "that doesn't look good".
Luckly my floatation bag still worked.Sold the boat for $150. and bought a H16
Hey Robbor, I see you're from Ottawa...are there any regattas or meets or anything for H16's in O-town you know of? we would love to meet up with some "local" hobie people next summer!
