Except due to the quirks of the Laser class you can only use wooden foils on a boat that was originally supplied with wooden foils. You can use the latest foils too should you desire but if you boat didnt come with wooden foils from the builder it aint allowed....

They'd corrode if you kept them in a Laser foilbag.Designed to keep your foils wet forever. No wonder the wires rust in the old ones and the gelcoat peels of the new ones.

Aluminium foils for the Laser must be a business opp for somebody. Rooster??? I've got 4 club Lasers that are all bleeding rust and would love some easy to maintain aluminium ones.
