Does anyone know where I can get a good gently used laser sailboat?

I want a sailboat for those 4 to 8 knot days. The reason for a laser is a good friend has one and we'd like to race each other.
Thanks again,

Cory, you should try a catamaran with all the rigging removed and replaced with a kite. Tie a stout line across the akas (crossbeams), thread a spreader bar through the line so that the hook is located around 12" behind the front aka.

In 5-10 knots you'll smoke any "normal" sailboat, $15,000 racing cats included. All you need in order to go really fast is just barely enough wind to keep the kite airborne.

It's best to have a crew of two- one to control the boat and the other for the kite.

Hey Trent,
I want a boat to sail on those really light wind days. On the other hand, I am pissed. I could have bought a hobie minus the sail and rigging plus trailer for 200.00. At the time I thought what the hell am I going to do with this. Damn.

I have a Hobie 16 and my buddie Hartman has a 16 too and Klatt got one this last summer for 200$, we call her the Spirt of 76, casue shes old.


i will look for a cheap Hobiecat for you too, they are much more fun then a mono-hull
