    New to Sailing/Boating - Looking for honest advice

    It depends on which resource you are more willing to part with - time or money. Sailboats and powerboats have different appetites.

    Been seeing this for years on google image!

    It's natural state of buoyancy would be keel pointing at the sky.

    Crooked bow handle?

    Ya it's a bit off but who cares? Boat building is carpentry that allows for plenty of room for error. That Sunfish is awesome! An original without a sunburn!

    Sunfish Tools...

    OMG I am dumb. My latitude is 44 degrees N. My longitude is 80 degrees W. Sorry. And I have the exact same Ryobi drill, I've had it for about 18 years, it's on it's 3rd or 4th set of batteries. It also has a sight bubble on the back end for drilling straight down.

    Sunfish dolly

    Seems impossible, especially with several layers of profit for the distribution. I paid $80.00 for a single 3/8" Mac ratchet 30 years ago. It's on it's 3rd or 4th set of gears and I use it almost every day. I expect that it will last my remaining days. Now to get closer to the topic at hand - I...

    How much should hang off the trailer?

    I find that a Sunfish hull is fairly soft. I wouldn't use any type of bunks on a road trailer unless they are positioned right under the chines and the road was ultra smooth. It looks like Alan's trailers in the pics above would spread the load sufficiently with soft springs. Retrofitting...
