    You can also try Walmart. They sell trailer tires that are already mounted on a rim. The small tires (4.80x8) are about $30-$40. Look it up on their website. Judkei Reno, NV

    Rudder Gudgeon

    You need a latch plate. It is attached to the hull and keeps the rudder in place (although it tends to pop up in a heavy wind). I have attached a picture of the latch plate and some of the other parts for the old style rudder. I have also attached a diagram and mounting instructions for the "old...

    Cut a Window in sail?

    Contrary to most opinions, I think it is quite easy to add a clear vinyl window to a Sunfish sail, assuming you have access to a home sewing machine and a wife who will do the sewing. Sailrite ( sells a kit that includes everything you need to install the window. It...

    Righting Sunfish

    It sounds like the mast full of water was your problem. I had the same problem with a Hobie Holder 14. I would first drain the mast and then check for any holes and seal them with silicone caulk. Also check to see if the cap at the top of the mast is intact. You can run a small bead of...
