Also posted on Yahoo Sunfish sailor group--Sunfish masts do break; new masts are expensive (~$175); good luck trying to buy a new one-I gave up this last summer, 6 mo. thru dealer and no mast; Jens rigs can be complex and intiminating to the uninitiated; current Rule Measurement Diagram shows only a 10' 1/4" mast is legal. We need to change this to "max length" so that we can use broken masts to race. A shorter mast is just great for a Jens rig, and soo simple to rig (just move halyard down fwd. spar). Anyone on this forum agree? What thinketh thee??
