    Sharp 1976 Sunfish

    This is an Excellent Sunfish! It has been stored inside, comes with a 1 year old sail, ratchet block, new lines, hiking strap, dry storage bag in the hull (access thru the deck), fiberglass daggerboard, wooden daggerboard and a wooden rudder. The hull stays dry inside! The trailer has bearing...

    PRACTICE beats PANIC!!

    PRACTICE beats PANIC!! With the season right around the corner, when the wind picks-up, I have started to get antsy to get out on the water. This last Sunday we had mid 70’s temp here in mid TN, with a wind out of the southwest around 12-15 mph. The lake surface temp is 52, which didn’t...

    DVD

    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the "Back to Basics for Sunfish World Championship Speed" DVD? I have seen another DVD listed on a couple of sites, "". Has anyone watched either of these? Steve

    Last time out for the year!

    That would be helpful! I am going to have to try that one as well. Where do you keep your phone stored on board? I end up with mine double ziplocked in a pro storage fat bag. My boat stays dry inside, I guess I am just paranoid about the phone.....

    Last time out for the year!

    The one I used is Map My Fitness. It seemed to work pretty well! Have you had a chance to check any others?

    Last time out for the year!

    I hope that everyone enjoyed the season as much as I did! My first year in the Sunfish was GREAT! The last time out I used a Running Ap on my I-Phone to track my day on the lake.... 15 miles in 3 hours and 20 minutes! Not a speed record, but it was a GREAT day on the lake!! I was...

    I am a new "newbie" looking for advice!

    Yes I did. I never thought that the "roll and tip" method would work so well!

    Rustoleum topside

    I was wrong! I used Interlux on the deck.... and the Rustoleum was what I used on the bottom of the hull.... I guess I'm getting old!

    Rustoleum topside

    I used Rustoleum on the deck. After the first coat of primer I waited 24 hours. Temp was in the mid 60's. But I learned to do the coats early in the morning, before it warmed up too much. After the paint was no longer tacky, I set the boat out in the sunshine until sundown. I also tried to keep...

    Is There An Easier Way?

    I think there is a technical term for what I ended up with..... "OVERKILL"!

    Boat Paint Fiasco

    I did one coat of Rustoleum primer along with two coats of Rustoleum Topcoat. I went over the bottom before priming with a sandable paste made by bondo, filled the cracks and sanded it all smooth. I also sanded with 220 between each of the coats. One tip I can give you is to do it early in...

    Thanks to everyone! I found an older Sunfish that I have been going thru and cleaning up the last couple of months....
