    Star Dancer clonefish?

    I had a Star Dancer made by Edo Western Corporation and for a short time had a Sunfish at the same time. Physical comparison verified that the hull & rig were identical, only differing in the deck design. Sailing, I found the narrow deck edge harder to sit on if one has a tender tushie, and...

    New Race Sail Availability?

    Clark, that is normal response for Shoreline - Their operation is apparently part time, appointments, etc. I had the same experience but they responded quickly. Email works good.

    New Race Sail Availability?

    I don't know if they could win a race or not, but I just thought they were a unique Sunfish sail option. It was total chance that I happened to see them on the internet and thought they were cool.

    New Race Sail Availability?

    Sure they are not cheap, but they are brand new, unused, and class legal. The colors are some that you will not find today unless custom made. I bought one and am very happy with it. I do not race, though - I just like Sunfishes in color. Yes, I remember when you could buy a new 1978...

    New Race Sail Availability?

    FYI, Shoreline Sailboats has recently acquired a small number of NOS sails that they have pictured on their facebook page. "An opportunity for the Sunfish aficionado to have a class legal sail that no one else has!" Some very unique colors. Log into Facebook.

    Arizona sailing experience?

    Are there any members here that can provide positive/negative sailing experience on Arizona lakes, especially Lake Pleasant and Roosevelt Lake? I am in Minnesota and am getting totally tired of sitting here in snow drifts waiting for a very short Summer. I am especially interested in Sunfish...

    Unknown, what is that thing? Some sort of boat dolly? You need bigger wheels -those will sink in the sand!

    Wow - I didn't realize! Wasn't aware of the Senior Grand Masters age details! I feel like a spring chicken!

    So what age is the oldest "crusty" you have heard of that is still cruising on a Sunfish? Besides Paul McCartney?

    Hello Clark! Appreciate your response to my rather mundane thread about a new gel coat. Must be the result of the Minnesota Fall/Winter doldrums. I admire your strong attachment and determination to make your storm damaged (an understatement) Sunfishes whole again. It is fun for me to be back...

    The Fish turned out real nice. They did a good job. It was solid when I got it, but had scratches and surface wear on the keel. Alan, The boat in the background is a Star Dancer, one of many Sunfish clones that were produced after they noticed the success of the real Sunfish. I am going to...

    They did it all. Good guys - Small < 100 year old family boat building business which, unfortunately today remains only as a boat repair & storage operation.

    Sign of the times - Prices continue to go up. I have known these repair people for 30 years and respect their work. They are the guys that manufactured my MC Scow. If this price is what they need to make a living, so be it. Sounds like you got a bargain.
