Here are a couple of Laser 2 (Laser II) drawings I scanned from a Laser*2 brochure I have from the mid 1990's.  I thought you might prefer one to the one you have as they show the underwater profile as well as the sail plan.

Thanks very much Ken.  I DO like to have the complete profile and it is really an excellent scan.
I will certainly use it.  of course I will need to reduce size and color depth a bit. But will be a big improvement.
Really appreciate this.

I thought it would be best to send it at a higher resolution (and in colour) than you would use so you could decide what final resolution you needed.

In case I come across something else I think you could use, do you prefer a certain size or file type?  If I'm scanning it really doesn't matter to me, I'm using Photoshop so I can save to whatever size, bit depth and file type works best for you.

Awfully nice.  (I need to get back to the notes you left for the  C&C's and get that sorted out a little better.) 
However you did the Laser 2 drawing, is fine.  Very clean!
You'd think that by now I'd be a scanning expert but I'm really not. From a brochure or page, if it's a drawing, I scan in grey scale (256). setting it at least 600 DPI. Depends on the drawing.
All drawing here are greyscale in the end anyway. I just clean them up from there. Obviously it's much better to start with a large image and reduce it, than the other way around.
Same with photos except that I sometimes scan in full color and take it from there. When I do the scan I'll save it to a gif, or something non lossy. When I'm done I save as jpeg.
Since ALL of these images are actually stored IN a database, (not recommended by anybody)  I should use ImageReady to bring down the file size, but I don't usually even bother. 
I'm already using the Laser 2 drawing. Decided to save this one in color with the red insignia. (256).
Check it out:http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_ID=4214 When the're this clean, I sometimes make them a little bigger than normal!
