I'm starting this new thread to please a new member who complained bitterly about the irrelevance of this section.

Here we go:

I don't really know how old my boat is. I was told it's been built in 1969, perhaps.

It's an Australian Contender (yeah, it is!), plaque number 150, original AUS sail number unknown.

One day when I'm good enough, I'd like to take part in open meetings and get it registered with a GBR number. I wonder which sail number it would get...

 

Over to you, guys!

My current trusty steed is a 1992 Vanguard MkIV Finn, Ex Barcelona Olympics, GBR 533.
My previous boats have been a 1984 Baggy Trousers design National 12, an 1976 Cheshire Cat design National 12, and a 1978 Mirror....

Do you know him/her, feva_sailor? After all, you're a member of the L4000 forum too!

(so much for their "only-provide-your-real-name" requirement, eh?)

I've got a Laser 4000, sail number 4113 built in 1995.  I know quite alot of the boats history:
  • I went out to America in '96 as a demonstrator to try and encourage a fleet of 4000 over there.  It was used for a season and put in a warehouse.
  • In 2001 it was shipped back to the UK without a rig.
  • In 2002 it was bought by the then Laser 4000 product manager (Richard Gibson).  He had the hull overhauled at the factory.
  • It had very little use until I bought it in 2004 :)
