Nigel,
Would like to see if your sails are as colourful as mine :-)

Did Laser want you standing on your head to work out the letters are N W, not M U...

Nice to see pictures of the boat.

Our sails are just as colourful ! .........although, yes, it is a mystery why the sails appear to bear the letters 'mu' rather than 'nw'. Our boat hasn't seen much use for some considerable time and the mainsail appears to have shrunk - it's definitely well shy of the mast top (it's been suggested that the bolt-rope itself may have shrunk?)

Pull the main all the way up before placing the boom on the gooseneck. you will have to pull the boom down quite a bit to get it on ( 1 to 2 inches if memory serves even with new sails). If it just won't go then indeed the bolt rope may have shrunk, if so unpick the stitching that holds the bottom of the bolt rope and ease it up an inch or so and re-stitch......Have fun Smile

The boat's looking really good in your picture.
I have the same spinnaker colour too.

Hi Nigel,

I have a laser 2 regatta and want to change it into a laser 2 new wave.  To do this, I need information and I hope you can help me.
The thing I need to know is the length of the genakerpole and where it is fixed to the boat.
Maybe you have a photo of this.
I would be grateful if you could give me that information.
You can send me an e-mail to volker.harting@t-online.de

Thanks a lot
Volker

Volker, I would strongly recommend that you try sailing a Fun New Wave,  then try a (Laser) 3000 before embarking on any modifications.

I think your choice will then lay between the 3000 and staying with the Regatta symmetric layout.  In my experience, the New Wave (and I gave it a good try-out in Minorca back when really it was new) it was a a bit of a lash up, and I wasn't at all surprised when Laser quickly dropped it and did a proper job of converting the, in itself nice, Regatta into an asymmetric in the form of the 3k.

Just my 2 cents worth, but I was and remain a fan of both the Regatta (the nicest symmetric boat I have ever sailed on a spinnaker reach, tho' I have reservations about the fit-out) and the 3k.  I wanted to like the New Wave, but gave up on it after a few tries.

Thank you for the information.

As I know the hull of the 3k und the laser 2 is the same. The difference is the cockpitlayout.
I am sailing  my boat singlehanded for a five years, I never used the spi because it is too difficoult to handle for only one person. That is why I want to change the symetrik layout to an assymetric one, this is better to work with.
