    Replacement Decals for Vanguard Sunfish?

    Finally got around to restoring my Sunfish after about a year (finally), and I was wondering, is there a place where I can get replacement decals for the cockpit and sides? The originals on mine are completely gone.

    Dolly Tie Down

    I live on a lake with steep hills surrounding it, I like to use a bungee cord with a hook attached on the end. I pull the rope through the handle of the boat, wrap in around the other end of the dolly handle, and secure it with the hook. Keeps my boat from falling off even at a 15* incline...

    The "grunge" can also be seen on the original bailer.

    Gravel-like material in autobailer hole?

    I should probably clarify, this is a 2005 Sunfish, the which is why I found it so weird that there was grunge inside of it.

    Gravel-like material in autobailer hole?

    While replacing the auto-bailer on my sunfish, I found this gravel like material in between the cockpit and exterior, is this supposed to be there or did it work its way in somehow?

    Hoisting Sail is a Two Person Job?

    I would recommend putting one hand on the halyard and another on the lower portion of the boom near the gooseneck. I like to push up on the lower portion of the boom and slowly pull the halyard in, it usually works for me, but I don't know if it does for anybody else. Hope it helps either way.

    Help with tiller extension bolt

    What a coincidence! Just yesterday I finished re-varnishing my rudder assembly. Same problem as yours, I solved it by painting up to the bolt, didn't affect my performance in anyway and it's pretty straightforward. Hope this helps you out.

    From the Z banding on the sheet hanger and deck plug, it looks like they're 3D printed, right?

    Sunfish rental near Orlando?

    There's a Sunfish meetup in Windermere. It only happens once a month, so it really depends on when your trip is. Here's a link Orlando Sailing - Learn to Sail or use the Fleet! Sunfish (Orlando, FL).

    Need help identifying Sunfish sticker

    Ok, thanks for the clarification! I was fairly unsure about what year it was. I've only been sailing Sunfish for around 2 years so I'm not too experienced in identifying stuff like this.

    Need help identifying Sunfish sticker

    After a little bit of internet browsing, I found the photo attached, there seems to be a decal in the exact same position as mine, I can't seem to find a date for the photo, but the link redirects you to the worlds web page. I'm pretty sure you are right about it being from the 2005 worlds since...

    Need help identifying Sunfish sticker

    Hello, I recently purchased another Sunfish and noticed this sticker behind the splash guard. The inspection port covers most of it, but I was wondering if anybody had seen it before. It's a 2005 vanguard purchased from a sailing center in Fort Myers and it has a Tackle Shack (Tampa) sticker on...
