I purchased a sunfish for a hundred bucks just before Irma hit because the former owner just wanted it out of his yard during the storm. Well I tied it down well enough that there was no damage, and now I'm back to getting the boat ready to get on the water. I ordered a new sail and all it really needs, as far as repairs go, is to have the hole where the bailer used to be fixed, and a replacement for the original deck drain plug which is no longer there and has just been covered up with electrical tape. First, let me say I sincerely apologize if this has been covered, but after loads and loads of Google searching I couldn't find anything about it. 1. What is the layup schedule for the hull? I ask because to be honest I don't really need a bailer and I'm just going to plug the hole by glassing and over. I plan on using polyester resin so I can gelcoat it and I just need to know how many layers of what weight cloth to use. 2. Can I use a typical plastic drain plug To replace the original? The originals are a bit expensive and Sunfish direct doesn't seem to have them in stock anyway. Also, I'm honestly not sure how to install them. Do either the original drain plugs or a modern plastic drain plug need to be backed with anything whether it's a word or metal backing plate? Or, can the screws that secure the base of the drain plug simply be screwed into the Fiberglass Deck without a backing plate or block? Thanks in advance for all your help. I'm kind of hoping I can get the repairs done this weekend and get it out on the water as soon as possible.
