    Just thought I’d share what I slapped together in a couple hours with what I had left after a liquidation sale. Got caught up in a selling frenzy and when all was said and done I didn’t have a sailable sunfish!!! A quick finish up on a patch and few coats of rustoleum. I made due with some cheap...

    Beginner Technique

    Btw the inside diameter of 1/2” pvc is .602. Might give this a shot also being its very inexpensive, plus it’ll probably work as a coupler joint on the above mentioned golf shaft.

    Beginner Technique

    I recently sold a boat that had a diy golf club shaft tiller extension. I immediately regretted selling that one. I’ll be replacing that ASAP, already have a couple old shafts, now just need the time. I’ve never done it myself but I’ve heard small diameter pvc can be used as a cheap tiller...

    Show Me Your Bungee

    Actually I pass the bungee through a small loop of line that is in a hole on the handle of the board.

    I do one wrap around the board, just under the handle. Then around the mast and hook together to complete the loop.

    Show Me Your Bungee

    Here’s a shot of mine with the sail rigged high enough I don’t need to worry about the littles on a tack or the board in its highest position. Might be a good way for your next excursion (yeah I seen the video). This set up may solve a couple issues you had. A bonus to this set up is when the...

    Well that’s better then the landfill, and beats sleeping on the couch. I got an eye out for a bow rail. I really see the allure of the mariner even though I haven’t sailed her yet. The captain and 1st mate are anxious to go boat camping. So as time permits this lowly deckhand will be getting...

    EZ Rec Rack For Sunfish

    I could be wrong, but being homemade it only had to be weighed and inspected initially to get a vin#. Once that is completed it’s treated just like any other trailer. It just says homemade on the regi. Although I do know what you mean, it’s seems every one got a story why they don’t have...
