How about "The Fridge Door" - exactly where you would go to look to find the milk carton that you will need to tie to the top of the mast to stop the boat turning turtle...

Hi Hugh, welcome to one of the most exciting boats.  I'd like to hear how you get on and I'm always available for tips, but of course you should look at this site http://www.laser4000.lasersailing.com/

Ive just got a Laser 4000 (4113).  Still looking for a name.

Thoughts so far have been "Hanginaround" and "Dunk and Disorderly" but I'm not sure about either.

Suggestions would be gratefully received

Regards

I do try and look after the boat, problem comes when something wears out/breaks, replacing stuff when you're skint isn't easy.

OK been back and editted my post - I hope my wife does not see it  As I am not always very nice to my boat, especially when she decides not to tack properly

Like it Phil - I am on the point of a divorce in favour of a younger model. I will let you decide if I will be divorcing my wife or boat. Remember I am Scottish and will pick the cheapest option

Mind you the cheapest option may result in the expensive option if she disapproves.
