    Hi we just bought a Sunfish turned turtle this weekend and the mast is now at the bottom of Biscayne Bay. I need a mast for an 1987 Sunfish New or Used But I have to be able to pick it up in FL. Thanks so much.

    Did you try a local dealer? Tackle Shack in Pinellas Park, FL (www.tackleshack.com) or 800-537-6099.

    :eek: How did that happen?
    The mast should be secured to the hull by the halyard. And the mast should float (unless it's very leaky)...

    It was attached and the end cap where you thread the halyard through on the mast snapped. The entire end cap dropped out of the mast and it must have been very "leaky" because the mast dropped like a stone. I still have the sail thank goodness.

    That's a sad story; thanks for reporting it.
