    Does the ball need to have that black sleeve/condom around it?

    Wayne, your picture answered all my questions. Thanks! Now, why are the later bailer caps longer?

    Sailing in oil--America's problem

    I can live with media giving us different spins of the same news instead of just one official version. Truth is a three edge sword after all.

    On bailers and threads

    So, the thread is the same, being the length of the cap the only difference between the two?

    On bailers and threads

    I need to get a replacement bailer cap for my sunfish. Staring at http://www.sunfishdirect.com/sunfish.php?p=sunfish_bailer, it seems there are two different threads. I have here the old broken cap and the bailer; how can I figure out which one I have? TPI? Something else? Just go somewhere they...

    Drying inside of boat while I am away

    Loose foam questions

    I have to be humble and say I did not see those instructions. Thanks for showing them to me. Now I guess I need to go and get the foam and then prepare to fill it with goo. I really do not know if I will be able to turn it like that but I will give it a try. :D

    Sunfish title/registration

    I found the same to be true in FL: once you title the sunfish you need to get numbers and renew the title every year. I ended up doing it just because I wanted to have it registered to me. That said, they did not use the serial number for the boat. Instead they came up with their own numbering...

    Loose foam questions

    After I put one of those inspection holes (thanks to one sunfish forum member!) in my yet-to-be-sailed sunfish, I found out the foam on the left (port?) side of the mast is not only kinda loose but also tilting towards the mast on the rear. I read the how-to on gluing it back with the expandable...
