    Wanted: Yellow/Orange sunfish sail

    FS: older sunfish

    THis is an older sunfish (1969-1971). No serial number as the deck plate fell off. Pretty good condition considering the age. Includes original sail and spars. Wood rudder and centerboard are not original and came from a more recent boat with the new style kickup rudder. Mast step holds water...

    Need help dating old sunfish

    I haven't tried there yet. Do you think the metal plate is simply missing as in it fell off? I thought they were riveted on or something. I see why you say it has to be no later than '69 because that's when AMF bought Alcort. So that's pretty good in narrowing it down. Can't be younger than 1971...

    Need help dating old sunfish

    Aquired this sunfish, can't figure out the age. Read the pages on yahoo group but some things just don't add up. I know it's in the 60's but want more specific info. Has no metal plate with serial number and of course nothing on the transom. What do you guys thinkg based on the pictures?

    Installing tiller extension

    It did come with the plastic saddle but no screws or bolts for attachment. I like the idea of bolting it through and recessing the heads from underneath.

    Installing tiller extension

    I just bought a Ronstan Battlestick telescoping tiller extension and it didn't come with any hardware or instructions for installation. Is it supposed to come with the hardware? DO I use screws to go into the tiller or nuts and bolts? What size, diameter? Thanks Janina

    Free Gill Boots

    I just looked up the boots and I guess they only come in men's sizing so those should fit me perfectly. I would guess that shipping would be around $5 to CT. How can I pay for the shipping? Do you have paypal or something? Janina

    Replace mainsheet cam cleat with hexaratchet?

    I've used the spring before when I had a laser. It works ok but as others have said, sometimes the mainsheet gets stuck on it. MY understanding is that the rubber boot acts like a spring. We'll see when I get it :) I'm hoping that the eyestrap will work for mine because frankly I was just too...

    Replace mainsheet cam cleat with hexaratchet?

    I knew you removed the swivel base. I was just wondering what size eyestrap you got that allowed you to use the existing holes in the deck from the swivel base. I just placed the order and I got the Harken H281 Micro eyestrap. I also ordered the medium standup boot from APS and the carbo...

    Replace mainsheet cam cleat with hexaratchet?

    I'm assuming you used the medium "boot" from APS instead of the spring?
