    Let's Talk Trailers

    When NorCalSail was inquiring about trailers I took a photo of the trailer I got with my Laser, measured it and labelled the photo. I included that photo below. My Sunfish trailer is almost exactly the same dimensions as my Laser trailer. The positions of the winch stand up by the bow as well...

    Main sheet cleat that locks in

    How very interesting. A cam cleat that releases when you pull down on it a second time. https://www.atlanticriggingsupply.com/marine-hardware-cleats-harken-trigger-cleat.html - Andy

    Main sheet cleat that locks in

    That's the block and cam cleat combo I have on my two Sunfish. You flip the cam cleat on it so it's facing upwards. Here's a link to a previous post I did on this Harken block. Tiller tamer and ratchet block? - Andy

    New to me Sunfish hulls

    That WAS a great video from LaserPerformance. I sure could have used that, "Gelcoat Putty" trick when I had to fix a good sized, crappy repair on the bow of my Laser that a previous owner had done. I had to do multiple applications of gelcoat with a brush followed by multiple sandings to get...

    New owner, older hull Serial# 010013 refurbishing for my daughter

    Here's my post from a thread not too long ago about re-attaching those blocks with expanding foam. Missing Expansion Foam on 1972 Sunfish? - Andy

    Greater purchase on the main sheet

    Sticky Interior

    Never mind the black mast. I think those "Laser Laser Laser" stickers would look great on your boat! The only problem might be that all your sponsors might get mad. :cool: - Andy

    Laser 2

    Yup, that's pretty much what I was doing with my 470 when sailing it single handed. Here's the sequence of getting going as I remember them when you are by yourself. - With only the leech of the main filled and the rest of the main luffing, set the jib for whatever point of sail you are going...

    Sunfish Daggerboard Floats Away

    That is a great idea. That may allow me to switch from loop sided velcro to carpet. - Andy

    Sunfish Daggerboard Floats Away

    A good way to test if you're fairly close to the right thickness of material (carpet, loop sided velcro, etc.) is to first cut 8 pieces that are just 2 inches long, glue them in place about a quarter of the way towards the center of the daggerboard case from each corner then test the fit with...

    Video: It Got Really Windy

    Hooking back up with you at the end of the trip and blasting along that final windy stretch before arriving at the cove at Marconi's was a highlight for me on Saturday. I really like the footage I got of you abeam and upwind of me as you planed along in the afternoon lighting with the fog cloud...

    58 Mile Trip

    Great video! Amazing trip. I liked how you came ashore. Like a jet ski. - Andy

    Sail and Setup

    That's the exact Ronstan extension I have. I liked the first one I got so much I got 3 more. 2 for each of my Lasers and 2 for each of my Sunfish. - Andy
