    Old Trailers with Old Boats

    My wheels have lugs, you just can’t see them in the previous pics.

    Old Trailers with Old Boats

    Before and After Pics I could order new fender decals on eBay, but they are expensive. I masked off what remained of the original decals, primed and painted the original robin’s egg blue. Just add boat.

    Mast/Spars/Sail Storage Tube

    You’re right, L&VW, those mice can get into just about anything. The sails aren’t without risk inside the cottage, either. This guy (and his cohorts) preferred to make a nest out of my tshirt, fortunately. Next time I might not be so lucky!

    Mast/Spars/Sail Storage Tube

    I’ve got the spar bags (thanks to Sailcrafti) and the wooden cubby sounds like a good option. Thanks, mixmkr.

    Mast/Spars/Sail Storage Tube

    The search feature isn’t helping me on this one. I’ve got 3 Sunfish at my cottage, but no garage or shed for storing the rigging. They are kept behind the couch, which is not ideal. I’d like to store them outdoors in the 8” diameter PVC tubing, I think I’ll need 14’ length, with a cap on...

    Old Trailers with Old Boats

    I’ve grown to appreciate a classic boat trailer, especially with a classic boat on it. Last year I restored an old Gator. This recent find had the right look, and after a little sanding I was rewarded with the fender labels- an old TeeNee. The trailer was painted gray, but beneath it the...

    Really Nice 1970 Sunfish-Sold 5-17-2020

    That’s a beauty, alright! ‘71 was the last year of the old-style rudder and gudgeon. The sail window was also added in ‘71. The original sail would have the AMF Alcort Class Approved sail label, but this has a nice new Intensity sail. $650 is a great price. People pay nearly that for the...

    Rustoleum topside

    I wouldn’t paint the Phantom- looks like it cleaned up nicely!

    Nice feature on an old Sailfish

    This old woody has been in line in the garage and bumped many times by the latest boat to turn my head. I've never seen one with the heavy webbing attached to the rails. It creates a perfect toe hold. The Sailfish is a great abdominal workout- TotalGym and a lot more fun. This one should be...

    Fixing leak and repairing gelcoat and gelcoat cracks

    Nice prep. I’d go a little bigger with the fiberglass patches, covering 1/2” or so beyond the damaged area.

    Sunfish drainplug and/or port?

    Don’t cut an inspection port unless you have to. If the boat isn’t overweight, your blocks aren’t detached and/or you don’t need to access interior for repairs then you don’t need a port. Do you hear water sloshing around? Have you tried using the drain on your deck? Are you able to move the...
