    Hi, just got a Super Porpoise

    Hi, just got a Super Porpoise

    Hi, this is my first post and just wanted to poke my head in and say hi. I have found forums to be a huge help in doing new things, so here I am. First off all I apologize that I don't have a Sunfish but I have something close. This is a true story that happened last week. I'll try to keep it...
