    Two Lasers for the price of one.

    Fixed the cracked seam on the blue hull with some epoxy and fiberglass. Cleaned the seam, sandwiched some cloth, epoxied, and then clamped the seam. Went sailing yesterday. No water in the hull afterwards ;)

    Thanks! Will actually be at Stony Creek later today. If you are there by any chance, look for the rainbow sail!

    Just some flex on the sides of the hull. Not much close to the daggerboard area. Probably not an issue for this as a recreational hull.

    Interesting. Maybe this sail was made during some sort of transition. The yellow hull- Unknown age. Someone repaired the bow eye and moved it fwd or back. covering/destroying the serial. Currently attempting to date it using the Michigan registration number. It does have Stainless steel rudder...

    Newly Acquired Sunfish

    Have been busy for the past weeks. Sunfish is basically done. Once I install that one missing rivet in the coaming, and repair a small hole where the storage compartment meets the cockpit, it will go in the water. Should be a few pounds dryer by now. not too worried if it is 20 pounds over the...

    That looks like a good idea...but poorly executed in that case.

    Newly Acquired Sunfish

    Bow handle is as sturdy as can be. Happy with the outcome. Installed the deck plates and the coaming. I found the solution to buying 13 rivets for 8 dollars + shipping. I used some 3/16"-1/4" grip po-rivets from my local hardware store. $2.00 for 12 rivets. Some when they say up to 1/4"...

    The piece was coated yesterday with polyurethane and will be installed today. There is no way for me to know what they used for glue.

    scratch cover for rear deck

    This will not get rid of old scratches, but would prevent further scratches is you were to zip tie some pipe insulation to the tiller arm. Cheap and temporary fix. Any pictures? Everbilt 1 in. x 6 ft. Foam Pipe Insulation-ORP11812 - The Home Depot

    Measured the hole diameter to be a bit larger than 1/4". The 1/4" diameter rivets should do the job. I guess the real question is what length I'd need.

    Newly Acquired Sunfish

    Hello, So I went ahead and cut an inspection port at the bow. Thankfully I was able to slide a mahogany backing block in with no issues. There was no goop in the way where they would have glued the backing block in place so I got lucky. Total time to cut the port and install a new block: 25...

    Silicon sealer is definitely a no go. Had the salesman at west marine recommend that I use 5200 as the sealer for the split deck:rolleyes:... Bought some 3m gelcoat restoring compound... Results of 30 seconds of buffing using an old rag (before and after): Did a nose job using some filler...
