    Issues with Laser Performance Sunfish Manufacturing

    You might watch Craigslist, etc., for used boats while you wait for your new ones. Many, many people are wondering just exactly what is up with the Manufacturer ... Please don't give up ...

    Newly Acquired Sunfish

    Skip the 3rd port on the front deck. There isn't enough room to get your hand in there and get to the bow handle area with the foam block that is in place (just did one last August). While splitting deck and hull is ill-advised, this area might be a good choice, but don't do the whole thing...

    Tom-Kat's solo roof-rack-stack-packing.....

    When I drive with boat on top of van handle 80 just fine. I tie the bow down to the front (swim noodle to protect paint), to the back hitch, and across twice on the roof rack. Only one problem once when a roof rack foot slipped. That's in 30 years. Now mostly using a trailer ... And, Tom's...

    Injection Molded Sunfish

    The manufacturer has sent the molds to China. Boats are being built. The intention is for them to remain fiberglass and resin. The rest of it is still very unclear. No, it's damned near impossible to "call LP" and get any reasonable facsimile of conversation. We will have to wait for the...

    Yikes, My 1966 Sunfish weighs 270lbs without any drainable water in it!

    Yikes, My 1966 Sunfish weighs 270lbs without any drainable water in it!

    If you keep going, you should be able to someday get it back down to 130-135. It's supposed to be hot the next couple weeks--get your black trash bags to work then! Once it's below 32 degrees you won't make any water vapor at all--it will all be hard water (ice). What the drying process is...
