I fancy something twin wire and big kite and generally a bit daft for blasting and maybe racing occasionally if ever upright for long enough and keep reading about 5000's being dirt cheap to pick up (as a dead class).

So where are they? Can't find one for sale anywhere, cheap or otherwise... Presumably the association is now completely defunct as their website (laser5000.org) seems dead... Has the time when they were a bargain passed?!

You may find you need to buy three and put the parts together yourself.... FWIW, a 49er can be picked up pretty cheaply and there's a constant supply of reasonable second hand kit filtering down the squad channel to keep them sailing in 'club condition'.

I've heard the Navy bought a few to dangle out of those holes on the front of our new aircraft carrier....

Needs to sail more...

They'd be too heavy for that.

they are hiding in an old boat shed, somewhere in the east midlands?

You could try Richard at http://www.ppsa.co.uk/. He probably owns most of them or knows where the ones he hasn't bought yet are.

you'd probably do better with this:

and you'd probably be able to sell it again afterwards.
