    Any suggestions for upgrades to my 72 sunfish?

    That port side tip was actually pretty helpful my line doesn’t run against the sail anymore. New rigging equipment and battle stick were essential upgrades so much easier to sail and I save my hands. Should be a standard for these boats. Learned a lesson today Always tie a knot at the end of the...

    Webfoot: Do you happen to have a picture of this PVC mount? Breeze bender: Is there a reason for having it on the port side when rigging? Yes, there was more than enough room with the lip. Inspection port in just for emergency storage...and inspection.

    Any suggestions for upgrades to my 72 sunfish?

    Quick easy install. The spring was a little tricky to get on. Thought I could install the cleat, but didn't it needed longer screws than I thought and didn't feel like making a trip. Proly gonna use one of the hook holes. Also decided to install this. Gonna forget about the "ultimate...

    Installing cam block, with reinforcement underneath

    Ah I misunderstood. I thought everyone was installing it and placing the washers from the inside via the inspection port. But I suppose there is enough lip over the cockpit that you can just place the washers there without getting on the inside.

    Ultimate Inspection Port...

    What is the length of the port you installed? I saw this thread and thought I had to get one similar. This just came in the mail, and I am having second thoughts. This thing is huge. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PBWLCQI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Any suggestions for upgrades to my 72 sunfish?

    Got the ratchet block in today. Idk why I assumed it came with all the hardware. I was able to order the mounting hardware from intensitysails. Those parts sure are hard to find. I think intensitysails and APS are the only US sites that had all 3 parts. Hopefully they get in by the weekend. So...

    Thanks for the tip. The shaft of a 5/32 rivet is perfect size to hold in place. 1/8 is too small and will fall through.

    Any suggestions for upgrades to my 72 sunfish?

    Finally got the boat out this weekend. 20 miles of unpaved roads with a trailer wasn't a good idea. If the boat didn't have dings before it sure does now. Day 1 didn't go so well wind was 15+ and I went over as soon as I launched so I decided to try the next day. Day 2 didn't start off so...

    Picked up a Sunfish need a few repairs before she can see the water

    I think she might see water this weekend. Winds are gonna be 15...a little more than I wanted for my first trip. Did a total of 4 layers of fiberglass and covered with marine tex. Not exactly seamless, but it seems pretty strong and water proof. I kept sanding to make it more level, but the more...

    That's great news! One less thing to take care of before she can see some water. Check out the progress of my repairs. Hopefully it will be done by this weekend!

    Picked up a Sunfish need a few repairs before she can see the water

    I was on the fence about installing ports, but I suppose you are right. Odds are its getting water in there. I cut the repair out and placed the backing patch today. I was able to do so without a port. Unfortunately I only had the epoxy I used to refinish my wood (the Jamestown 1:2). I am sure...
