Shameless commerce alert: I and others here on the Forum have used, original equipment boom end caps for sale if comparable new parts are inferior.
For the record, I have bought things at Sunfish Direct and have not had any problems. Annapolis Performance Sailing (APSltd.com)is going out of...
I have good, freshwater only, used Sunfish masts for $65, you pick up in Cazenovia, NY, a little south of Syracuse. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Also have boom sets with hardware and most other items of Sunfish gear.
The sail shown in the photo has sold for $265, but I just acquired a Class legal North Sailmakers Blue and White panel sail, no window. It is new, never used but it suffered two mouse holes in the blue panels that have been repaired with Bainbridge sail repair tape. Asking $195...
I do have one brass pressfit (no set pins) deck bailer with brass screw in cap for $10 + shipping (see photo in this string, above.) If you want one, e-mail your address to me: email@example.com and i will figure the postage and reply with a total.
Duh! Guess I didn't read the first post very carefully, i.e. "Sailfish" not "Sunfish." Obviously my comments referred to a Sunfish. I have no clue about Sailfish serial numbers and the age of hulls, but 1950s is a good guess.
All noted. You got the Sunfish deal of the summer. Comments:
All the parts you have ordered are fine. I like the ratchet block/cockpit lip cleat rig and have it on my '85 "beach banger," see attached photo. I dub this the "Tag rig" after Tag here on the Forum.
I can sell you a very nice...
Based on the 27404 serial number, your Sunfish was born in 1960. These were pretty good boats, a little heavier than today's birth weight, but well built. In the words of Indiana Jones, "It's not the years but the mileage." Hull weight is important. Weigh the boat on its...
What Sunfish parts are you looking for? I am pretty well stocked with used and NOS (new, old stock) Sunfish parts and gear, and I travel to
Birmingham each January to visit relatives and could deliver oversized items (spars, trim) at no extra charge. You can contact me directly at...
tag is spot on. One other caveat. The LP sails will have a "Sunfish" logo on the sail. The intensity sails no longer have the logos (they used to.)
I don't know if this is important to you. Also I think the Intensity sail goes for less than $199. Get a window whatever you do. Avoid the...
So it's a 1995 Sunfish Laser International (SLI). They were pretty good boats, but this one has had a hard life. If she were a horse, you would say that she was 'road hard and put up wet.'
Been there, done that, bought the tee shirt....but on a Laser hull. Luckily the "pop" was around the cockpit drain hole and an easy, non-invasive repair. Air under pressure can generate quite a bit of force. I use a little hand held vacuum cleaner on blower mode and then just a few puffs at a...
