    Your Opinion Is Wanted

    I currently an restoring a 1960 Lone Star 16. It is a great boat but I cannot raise the mast or comfortably sail her alone.

    Sunfish vs. Sailfish

    I am searching for a Sunfish in the D/FW area and came across a Sailfish in fairly good shape. There is only minimal information or photos available online. I have found that both boats were made by Alcort and that the Sailfish lost it's popularity around the time that production changed from...

    Any Sunfish owners in Lewisville, TX?

    Two Recommendations: 1. If you haven't already done so check in with the folks at LaVida Starships in Lewisville. They are a Vangard dealer and should know of any formal groups or "fish" related activities on Lake Lewisville. 2. I know of a group that races every Wednesday evening at Lake...
