    I just bought a '68 sunfish in good shape but the bracket which the rudder snaps into is completely missing. Can I find this part anywhere? I suppose there is a more precise term for the part. I haven't sailed in many years but used to have an older sunfish with the same rudder configuration. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Other than looking for a parts boat on Craigslist, or perhaps some kind of luck from Ebay, this guy in Pennsylvania does carry that particular part (used) from time to time. He had just that part up on his website a month ago, but it is now gone. I'd still send him an email - who knows. Additionally, he makes rudder replacement blades out of red oak, and is pretty competitively priced.

    Rudder Latch Plate p/n 79053

    See if this gentleman is still trading in used and obsolete Sunfish parts: Herb Baker (herbaker@aol.com)

    The Latch Plate is secured to more than just the thin hull. You may also need to go in and replace a rotted wood backing block.

    I am selling over 40 new in the package Vanguard/Sunfish original parts as a bulk sale. If interested I will post all photos on an online photo sharing service like Picasa, and then send you the link. This is one price takes all and not at garage sale prices, but certainly very fair pricing for all.
