    fanny pads

    i took care of it today with 15 dollar roll of non skid tape. i think it will work i also took off the wax around the cockpit. i guess i need to get some sailing shorts did not realize that they were grippies. man that is funny about velcro but not a bad idea.

    fanny pads

    industrial velcro strips or maybe 3m 4200, i want to be able to take off and not harm the gel coat. 4200 should be ok not 5200.

    fanny pads

    i can't stay on my boat, slicked it up so much that i am sliding all over. i am thinking about mounting some closed cell foam pads around the cockpit for comfort and a little more fanny grip. looking at a sleeping bag ground pad and cutting it to fit, velcro it down or silicone it in place...

    rudder system for escape

    the system looks like it would fit the sunfish gudgen. i don't have a fish now to confirm it. the cheeks look like the new ones for a fish and it has the spring pindle. i will try to get a pic. also i have the gudgeon that goes with it that is included so you could put it on the back of the fish...
