    what year is your boat? Could you describe the condition a little more and supply some recent pictures of both the boat and trailer?

    We are in Louisville KY. If the boat is dry and bottom is fairly good, we are interested.

    Boat is an AMF Alcort 1979.

    The sail in pretty decent condition for its age, it is not a new sail.
    Same with the daggerboard and rudder, no major damage but the are not new.
    Not aware of any leaks. A couple of the coaming rivets are detached.

    Hull number AMF 72833 M 79 G.

    Boat is dry. Bottom is good.

    Thanks,

    Hi Jennie,
    Yes, our boat is still for sail. The trailer is in good shape and should be fine for driving to DC as we regularly took it to Lake Erie from Cincinnati each summer (a distance of 250 miles one way).

    Is the boat in Cincinnati? I am a Lakesider and would be interested in sailing it there.

    Hi Brian, yes the boat is in Cincinnati. It's a great boat for Lakeside - even has a Lakeside bumper sticker on it!

    Thank you for the additional info. I have a comparable boat, and really was only looking for a trailer. I'll have to think about spending more than I anticipated [to get both]. Many thanks.

    Hi Trevor,
    If you're still interested in a Sunfish sailboat and trailer let me know. I realized I answered your questions about our boat without quoting your post so wasn't sure if you saw it. We may sell it to Strictly Sail as we are getting ready to move but I wanted to check with any individual buyers first if they were still interested. Thanks.

    Hi Jennie,
    Ok, just let me know. We may sell it to the Strictly Sail sailboat store here in the new future, as we are getting ready to move. I wanted to check with any individual buyers first if they were still interested. Thanks.
