Video Blog: Numbering A Laser Sail

I'm going to catch hell from James and Aaron for writing the blog post about numbering a Laser sail. You see, I bought a Laser a little over two years ago and haven't sailed it yet... not once... ever. Why, you ask? Well, I'm a pansy who won't sail during a frostbite series because it's stupidly cold and thanks to a knee injury, other sailing conflicts and general laziness (read: it's really just the laziness) I haven't gotten out there at all.

But when I do finally make plans to splash the "Land Laser", one of the first orders of business will be numbering my sail. Now, I could slip the guys downstairs an Alexander Hamilton to do the job -- not that they'd be doing me any favors since APS is always happy to install sail numbers on your new sail for a mere $10.00 -- but I'm more of a hands-on kind of guy and I'll end up doing it myself.

In addition to providing you a link to the written instructions for numbering a sail (clicky clicky), we also put together a video featuring our Boat Sales Manager, John Maloney, numbering a brand new Laser Radial sail.

The video is a little under 10 minutes long, so I'd suggest going to the bathroom or getting some popcorn before hitting play. Also, for those of you that don't have the Crazy Super High-Speed Business Internet Package with Power Boost and GoofySillyFast Compression Technology, you might want to pause the video when it starts for about 20 or 30 seconds -- this will allow it to queue up and eliminate any jumpiness.

Two notes: we kind of apologize for the tape gun that keeps going off during the video. We filmed this right next to our Shipping Department and these gosh darn youngsters have no respect for folks trying to film a video for a moderately viewed niche blog. "We have to get customer's orders out!", they cried. Whatever...

Also, around the 4:20 mark, Jarrett starts moaning in the background like a choking walrus to throw John off his game -- John has none of it. He's a pro... you hear me? Pro.
