This is a mind-boggling thread.

Surely if you puncture those plastic bottles, you will never get the water out of them thereafter.

I still don't get it though; what's the plan with the spars and foils? Are you still carting those up and down the hill - 'cos that sounds as much a trudge as the boat on a trolley. Plenty of potential comedy value though, carrying the spars about, wiping out cars and pedestrians at will.

I have been reliably informed Wink  that once you get past a certain age you don't actually worry too much about things like that.

Hurrah, I take this as concrete proof that I am still "young".

Nice to know Care in the Community is alive & well in Malta. Please call your Laser "The Black Pearl", just for me.

Just looking at the state of the underside of marker bouys tells me that sailing this boat isn't going to be pleasant, especially if you have an elongated break.

Don't forget to pack the jet washer when you next go sailing!

I concur.... the maddest thing on this forum since the V-Twin and when Luca lost the plot.

Raised the hull today, dragging it very publically slowly onto land with a pulley system as it drained. Because of language problems a tourist couldn't be discouraged from helping - he grabbed the rope to help me pull it and looked stunned when he found the weight to be 500 kg rather than 65 kg. But his wife was greatly entertained! The refloating took over an hour and the hull got bashed about. All in all, sink-storing of a Laser is doable but impractical. Have a good weekend, everybody!

Seems to me that you have up-cycled a Laser as a sub-surface water feature come reef.

One down just under 200000 to go!

Put them all in one place and it would be some reef.
