var a=new Image(); a.src=img; return a; I would go for the Force 5, so much more comfortable than a Laser. Since the screws were long enough, I cut a 1/8 x 3 x 4 inch aluminum plate to go under the thwart. longer than needed.

I bought my Force5 last year and it is deffinatly a comfertable boat to sail.With the decent chine it is easey to get her up on a plane.also Unlike the laser the F5 was designed to be able to be sailed w/another person. When did the Laser class figure this out?

are just $20.00  sizes M-XXL 

Rolled the Force 5 outside, rigged her up and took some pics. I have never been on a Force 5, but if your interest is fun with your kids I can't see how you could wrong with the Force 5, and who knows, you might sail a Portsmouth event and decide you really like it. I replaced it with the newer 1/2" set up when the rudder cheeks developed a crack. In the 32 years I've had it, I think that almost everything has been repaired or replaced, but it is still fun to get out planing on a windy day.... ummmmm - and don't gybe with the board up ! Pretty much the only time of year they sail it. The guy who sold it to me said to use wood glue. It is way more capable of sailing two up then a Laser is.

On a trailer with new tires, working lights, bearing buddies, tongue jack, and custom made bunk. Great boats - might even get my moms out here with me.

1974 Force 5 Sailboat & Trailer.

Ready for an afternoon cruise or weekend race.

With the flukey breezes here, didn't want to leave it rigged on the trailer any Oh and the blades were all wood if I recollect, You might need to build new blades and the gudeon-Pintel system might need reworking (its a bit more complex than a Laser's though it worked better).

I'm also working on a '62 A-H Sprite with a 1600 cc. Way cheaper than lasers. Includes system attachment hardware.

Rolled the Force 5 outside, rigged her up and took some pics. My suggestion for repair is to: 1) cut it along the crack and glue the pieces back together with Gorilla Glue. Hats are khaki twill with cobalt blue stitching, How About a New Force 5 T-Shirt or Hat? if(MSFPhover) { MSFPnav1n=MSFPpreload("_derived/home_cmp_bubbles110_hbtn.gif"); MSFPnav1h=MSFPpreload("_derived/home_cmp_bubbles110_hbtn_a.gif"); } This dinghy rudder blade is made from a single mahogany board. the adapter is a one-shot deal, but a permanent solution !
