Where can I get suitable tape to replace the stuff in the centreboard slot which has come adrift and got lost.
Thanks,
Gordon.

This is what you want. It seems its not so widely available now, for some reason:-

It sticks very well. Just clean up the surface first, as you would expect, and it'll last well. :)

Thanks very much Paul, I spent half an hour Googling to no avail so I think you're right, its not widely available.

I wonder if this sturr (www.diy.com/departments/stormguard-brush...rip-l5m/81174_BQ.prd) would do it. Or something similar. Won't be as good as the old polar pubes but might do the trick.

When I had a laser 2, a lot of people used carpet tiles cut to the right shape. But the polar pubes are much much better.

Carpet tiles alone on my Laser 2 were not brilliant - a bit draggy when they were tight enough, but squeezing in an extra layer of PTFE made not only the fit tighter, but allowed the board to move up and down really easily due to the low friction.

Actually, I asked for PTFE strip but got supplied with slot gasket (maybe PTFE-based?) which I used shiny side out, obviously. Stuck well to the carpet. Sheer idleness has stopped me doing it on the 3k - well, that and an aversion to getting glue everywhere.

Really puzzling why you would go looking for random bits and ignore the perfect stuff which is readily available from my link above. I've used it on both my Laser and L3K and it is better than the original stuff sold by Laser which I'd used previously. It's very self adhesive, simple to apply and, best of all, it stays there!
