Please note that the Sunfish class has a Southwest region that includes NM:
International Sunfish Class Association
but the level of activities is considerably lower than, for instance, near the Gulf or the Eastern part of the USA.
Whatever, enjoy your fish!
1. Major Laser regatta ongoing in Corpus Christie. See the Laser News section for details. Someone may want to get rid of a boat directly or via a dealer.
2. New Mexico is in Laser District 23 and the rep is Geoff Hurwitch. You might contact him. You can send me a PM for his E-mail address.
It's been a LONG while!
But we are still a friendly bunch of sailors.
And as Kent already wrote, Wayne (bless his heart) did contribute significantly to this forum, but he was never the 'manager' of the Sunfish forum. He did run the Yahoo Sunfish Group for quite some time until his untimely passing.
I am with Signal Charlie, and, really, a hole in the stern doesn't get rid of all the water due to the innards of the Sunfish.
When a Sunfish is rested on a horizontal surface, any water inside will collect near the daggerboard trunk and, assuming access via a port, can be sponged out easily.
A Laser upper mast and a Sunfish mast will bend differently
I hate to discourage innovation, but what you will end up with, if anything, will be slower than a race-rigged (updated) Sunfish.
Just my opinion, of course...
