    i am absolutely clueless about sailing. I found a AMF Minifish Alcort Division hull in my parents shed. I just cleaned it up and also found the mast boom and thing perpendicular to the boom? Sail is in very bad condition, I need to buy one. Where would i go to look for these parts. i have a hard time finding any minifish results online - normally comes up sunfish. Thought they might be comperable. I need a manual or some kind of guidence. The Hull is 11'9" if that makes a difference. Any help anyone could give would be fantastic. Thanks

    Nick,

    The Minifish as the name implies is a smaller version of the Sunfish, but many of the parts and gear are interchangable with the Sunfish. I believe that the sail on the Minifish is the same size as a Sunfish sail, but to be honest, I am not absolutely sure. There is a guy out near Cape Code, Al Courtines, who has one or more Minifish and would know for sure. You can contact him at: Cotuitbrteeze@aol.com. He might even has a used Minifish sail he would sell you.

    Good luck. Finding an old boat in a shed is always fun.

    I just took a look at the Minifish instructions. I've never seen them before and they sure look a lot like the Sunfish instructions. Interesting the way the sail was tied on in the original setup.
