    I'm looking for a used Sailfish sail for my Dad's Alcort Sailfish. Alternatively, does anyone know if I could use a Sunfish sail on it?

    Thanks!

    If you have a Super Sailfish (most fiberglass versions) then yes. Check the length of your booms. If they are 13'-10" long than you can use a Sunfish sail. I have used and new, cjo1023 at yahoo-dot-com.

    If you have an early wood or fiberglass Sailfish, the sail is 65 sq. ft. If you have a Super Sailfish, the sail area is 75 sq. ft.
    The standard Sunfish sail is 75 sq. ft. and will work fine on the larger Sailfish. If not, Kevane Sailmakers makes a 65 sq. ft.
    aftermarket sail that is designed for a Minifish.

    You can choose it on ebay. There are many SF sail sellers there.

    Are you still looking for a Sailfish sail? I just acquired one this afternoon, red and white panels, no rips, repairs, one or two
    tiny pin holes, nice, crisp Sailfish logo. Good aerodynamic shape. $65 + shipping. If interested, e-mail me at: aglos@colgate.edu and I will e-mail you a photo or two.

    Hola Alan

    If HSWell doesn't need the sail, Zsa Zsa does. She is the plan built Super Sailfish you saw, she only needs a keel and new plywood for the hull.....surprisingly she had all of the other parts except the sail was long gone.

    What say ye?
