    New Intensity Sail

    I bought one and am very impressed with it so far. I've only just started using it but I'll report back.

    Crisp and crinkly is good.

    Bridle (?) Length

    Okay that's what I would up going with, minus the snap shackle. I haven't taken the old bridle off yet but I will any day now.

    Cam cleat for new sailor

    Now that he's got his situation sorted out I don't feel bad asking a related but basically different question in his thread. On my 69 Sunfish there is an aftermarket cam cleat/fairlead setup, but there is also, hanging off the lip of the cockpit, a small brass nub that curves down. Is this the...

    The tiller extension on my 69 sf

    This is a good point! I will think more about this before I change anything.

    The tiller extension on my 69 sf

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing, but I couldn't agree more. The lack of inside access and the idea of using a polystyrene block as a stringer alone makes it pretty clear these were more or less disposable. It's nice they've gone along for 60 or so years though. Mine's almost...

    The tiller extension on my 69 sf

    These are good points. I sit all the way forward when I can. Maybe it's just that the tiller/extension feels so flimsy. Maybe I'll tighten it down a bit and see how it feels. I think there's something missing from the whole assembly though because the foremost bolt in part of the assembly...

    The tiller extension on my 69 sf

    I hate it. I absolutely hate it. What's the point? I had one on a Hobie 16 where it made sense because those boats are 6 or 8 feet wide (I forget which), so you're rarely within arm's length of the tiller itself. But on the sunfish, you'd have to go overboard to be unable to reach a straight...

    Two questions (hull layup schedule, deck drain plug)

    *... and I'm super glad I turned around and followed him back out. A squall line came through... I really have to start proofreading my posts when I type in my phone.

    Two questions (hull layup schedule, deck drain plug)

    Wow. Maiden-voyage-number-two-serious-this time was crazy. Lighter winds all day but as I was heading into the jetty I saw a friend coming out on his boat and I'm sorry glad I tourney around and followed him. A serial line came through and I got to give the sunfish the sea test I really wanted...
