Hey folks! I'm about to start a refurb project of my father's Sunfish, estimated circa late 60's model, and I really wanted to start the discussion of where I should start. I'd also like to make some contacts here that I can touch base with throughout the project to tap into your experience and expertise, and to make sure I'm not screwing something up. The boat has a lot of dings in the hull, particularly around the nose where it bumped up against the trailer over the years. Additionally, there are a number of chips and scrapes along the hull as the boat has, for many years, been stored on a floating dock hull-side up (exposed to the sun). As for the deck side, the halyard lead (I think that's what it's called) and cleat are both loose and in need of repair. And about a foot or so of the trim piece is missing from the port side of the boat. As a start, I've ordered two 6" hull access ports and plan to install them whenever they get here, both in the fore and aft sections of the deck. Once these are installed I can begin the process of drying out my boat (BTW, I have printed out the PDF file for how to properly dry a fish). I hope to post pictures in a few days which will show the condition of the boat in greater detail. I'm looking forward to this project, and I look forward to working with some of you experts!
