    I inherited a well used sunfish class sail boat. It is missing rudder and dagger board. Pics can be emailed to you. Sail is in decent shape and stored in a dry location but dirty looking. Great project boat sold by Sears, it has an "F" on the sail. First $100.00 cash gets it, no cashiers checks. Email is UABDAD@yahoo.com for pics.

    For what it's worth, I think you have a Sears-Roebuck Fleetwind sailboat. The sail insignia is a a letter "F" in a circle with breaks in it, and the bow is a blunt (pram) design rather than a pointed shape. They were pretty good boats in their day and worth at least the $100 you are asking if the hull is in decent shape.

    I believe (?) that a Sunfish daggerboard will fit and the Sunfish rudder assembly is about the same size (but the attachment hardware may be different.) If you want to see a photo of one, join the Yahoo Sunfish_Sailor website (no charge) then click on "Files" and then "Clonefish" and then "Clonfish A - K".

    Thanks Alan for the info. I will check out the website you mentioned. Hull is in good shape, needs painting or polishing. I have never sailed and many lakes around here in Birmingham, Alabama area to do so but I haven't the time. I guess I could sail it in my pool, nah. Thanks again.

    Howard, no seller is going to want to handle shipping a Sunfish. Here's how to ship one, feasibly and economically.... http://www.uship.com/boats/
