    Okay Sports Fans,

    Could this be Minifish #2? There is no HIN on the transom.

    Kent,

    Al Courtines (of Springfield, MA and Cape Cod) is the resident Sunfish Forum Minifish expert. Maybe he will weigh in. I will e-mail him. I think you have Mini #2.

    Must have been a surprise to see that serial number! Perhaps it should be donated to the Smithsonian!!

    More pictures of the ancient mini! Besides the lack of HIN are there any other differences with later Minifish?

    It was a surprise indeed! It wasn't until we went to work on the gel coat a year after buying it that we read the serial number, and christened her "Twoey". When we bought it the shop had two minifish for sale, and had mixed up the daggerboards, rudders, and sails, so the only thing I am sure is serial number 000002 is the hull. I've posted some pictures of the hull.

    All you need now is Minifish Serial: 14000 and you'll
    have both the second and the last produced.
