    Who Out There Has an AMF Flying Fish?

    By the way, got a chance to take my Fish out last month. Had a couple good sails, but unfortunately it was pretty hot and windless most of the week.

    From what I've heard, something like JB Weld is strong enough to seal up the plastic shell. Just smear it in there and make sure you squish it all the way into the crack. When it hardens, you can sand it smooth. If its a serious crack, you might have to do some actual fiberglass work to patch...

    Is this a Laser?

    It's definitely a Sidewinder. Man'O'War doesn't have that wide of a cockpit, nor the two-level deck. My buddy has a Sidewinder; I know it well. (I know, I'm like seven years late on this.)

    Apparently it's called a "skene chock". A "skene chock" is a type of "deck chock", which is a type of "fairlead". Aren't nautical terms fun? But yes, you're correct, it is essentially a guide for the mooring rope or anchor. I think in this particular case you're supposed to moore it on the...

    Ah, okay. I found it on a couple Flying Fish so it must be original to some versions. Good to know, thanks!

I just happened to have the mast and sail of a Jetwind (Snark Mach II) lying around (the boat itself was long gone) so with some modification we rigged it up with that! It's definitely about half the sail area...

    So I recently acquired an Alcort Flying Fish, and it looks like the previous owner added a strange cleat to the bow (I don't think it's original to the boat.) Its got two weird hooks that curve towards each other. Does anybody know the purpose of this? It looks like maybe it catches an anchor...

    Is this right?

    Who Out There Has an AMF Flying Fish?

    I'm a bit confused about the rigging of the halyard on this? There's a small loop that sits right in front of the mast, then there's a cleat to port of the mast that I assume you would tie off too. But then Lee's picture shows a pulley attached to the front of the vang? I don't think mine has...
