4 grand cheap as chips for a boat which can't be used for its prime purpose? Why not buy a class legal one nearly new?

They are passing the cost difference to the customer. Does anyone believe that the plaque and sail button is the cost difference.

Is it ILCA for class legal and Laser for illegal boats ?
How many clubs will ban Laser ? Probably none.

I wonder when the Chinese will start making fake plaques (if they aren't already)  LOL.

Its does illustrate how much extra profit there is in a 'class legal' Laser though.

Seriously though, if you only sail at club and regional level then it's a great deal and nothing illegal or immoral about buying and racing one (unlike buying a replica sail for example).

HI Sam
But then they sell it without the plaque to some junior who then finds its an illegal boat for the Regional champs etc. Not all parents would know anything about the problem.
I think ILCA should try to stop them selling them until they sort out the issue.

I'm sure they'd be delighted to hear your suggestions about how to do that.

Exactly so, and if enough people do they can start their own Laser class association.

Why is buying a replica boat any different from buying a replica sail?
