Hi, this is my first post and just wanted to poke my head in and say hi. I have found forums to be a huge help in doing new things, so here I am. First off all I apologize that I don't have a Sunfish but I have something close. This is a true story that happened last week. I'll try to keep it short. A friend at work mentioned his grandfather had an old sailboat that they were going to sell. Turns out it was purchased brand new in 1974. The grandfather didn't get around to using it right away so he tied it up from the rafters of his garage. The boat was never touched again until I picked it up last week. All parts were still in their original wrapping and boxes. I put the sail up last night for it's very first time. Hopefully this weekend brings some good sailing weather. I hope to learn from this forum even though I have a different boat. Thanks.
