    Locking mast/boom/sail to Sunfish - solutions?

    the only problem with using pvc pipes is that home depot wants almost 80$ for a pipe of that size and diameter

    Hugely frustrating experience, what went wrong?

    I dont agree with you, the catamarans i have sailed are the contrary (probly its me) but i cant point as good as my sunfish or super snark. Dont even get me started on tacking!:p:p:p tacking on a cat takes its learning curve.
