    When is it time to call it quits?

    I haven't gone sailing since September of 2017. I have a sunfish clone a starfish. Sits in the garage on a trailer. I just dont think I want to go anymore. Wife wants me to just keep the boat, but I see storage space I could use for other things.

    First sail water in hull?

    I sailed Aquafinns as a youth. I loved the rudder and its ability to use a line to pull it up. My Dad donated a bunch to Boy Scout camps when I was in high school. About 25 years later those boats were still being used. I saw them at camp so they hold up pretty well.

    Shoes

    Kevin, thanks for your suggestion. I had some water shoes but the slimy muck monster sucked them off of my feet. The last lake I was in I sank about 8 inchs into the muck before I could get lose enough to get on the boat. I dont wear flip flops nor go bare foot when sailing due to seeing...

    Shoes

    Sail and blade bags

    A wing nut would be much quicker! need to make a run and get one!! My rudder is some crazy thing cobbled together by a previous owner so the tiller handle doesnt even fold close to the blade. makes it a nightmare to transport.

    Sail and blade bags

    Greetings, My wife is going to make bags for my sails, spars and blades. I was looking at the bag for the rudder blade and I am curious what folks do with their tiller handle? Do you unbolt it to place it in the bag? Thanks

    Naming the boat

    I specifically wanted this Snoopy image so I googled it and found a place that makes it. The snoopy image is vinyl. I found the lettering again with google that had the Peanuts font. As for sunlight and fading I will never know because my boat stays in the garage. The boat is only out for...

    Naming the boat

    I will hazard a guess it's the original bridle. This isn't a sunfish it's a starfish.
