Yeah, I know it's a fun & fast boat to sail with a great following. Basically giving ole Jonner a hard time just for hell of it just as the lake loon gives all that sell the F235. Build-wise and aesthetically, I've never been the biggest fan of ye olde Laser 28 though I've not seen one in person, just online. For sure, he would have a grand ole time sailing the beast.

Ye olde Laser 28, light indeed. Still, the vision is not magic to eyes. I guess she's handsome, enough. Sure is a light beast.




I'm kinda liking YIKES.

I think the laser 28 is a sweet boat.

If you need a case of 4200 i'll give you a sweet deal!

Boat-builder spat! I've got the popcorn!!! ;^)





But re the Laser 28, I dig it. Not the first time a 235er has moved up to a Farr!

BWI, this is great read on the origin of the Laser:
