    Sail Comparison of new sails, is there a major difference?

    Absolutely! I have been doing a lot of research on rigging options. Thank you. I questioned trying out the original sail, which I still have, to see if it was any better, but I'm afraid it would shred into a million bits. It is super soft and thin, kind of like a bedsheet after over 40 years.

    Sail Comparison of new sails, is there a major difference?

    Yes, I did. I saw that you mentioned APS on your blog. A simple recreation sail may be enough of a reduction for my purpose. I'll take a look at the minifish sail.

    Sail Comparison of new sails, is there a major difference?

    Strange Request- Feel Free to Make Fun of Me...

    So, I have a white race cut sail from Intensity Sails and I'm looking for ways to de-power this sail. I know, I know, what?! Currently, I'm sailing in Colorado with my dog in mostly gusty conditions. When I have him with me we need to stay in the boat and I'm finding myself getting a little over...

    Sail Comparison of new sails, is there a major difference?

    Pryde is listing its colored sails at 83.6 sq feet with slightly longer luff, leech and foot. Sunfish Direct colorful class legal sails are 75 sq ft. So it would seem that the Pryde sails offer a little more performance than the standard class legal...Yes?

    Looking for Rigging Advice

    The more I read, the more questions I have...Can anyone give me some definitive rigging measurements of where to attach the main halyard on the upper boom?

    New Tiller Extension Length

    I'm looking to add a universal extension to my '78 Sunfish tiller. Does anyone have a suggestion on the length? There are multiple lengths 30"- 48", some sites recommend 42" for Sunfish but that seems way too long to me...

    Towing Question- Need Advice

    Unfortunately, I'm just one person, partly why I'm getting a Sunfish is that it is a fun boat that I can handle on my own. I could probably get it off of this rack but doubt I could get it back up there on my own. I'll also be storing in a boat storage lot, so need something that it can sit on...
