    Two Complete Sunfish With Trailer

    First off, so sorry to hear about your daughter's expensive hospital visit. Hope she's recovering well. Secondly, I'm not in the market for a Sunfish at the moment (as we've got a Sailfish, Pirateer, Canoes, Kayaks, Inflatables, etc), but your trailer design caught my attention. I've got a very...

    Norlantic SB 100 Dingy (Manufacture Date?)

    I've recently been given a previously enjoyed (red) "Norlantic SB 100" inflatable, which someone had been using as a dingy, on their sailboat. Anyone have any idea how I determine the official year of this craft, (for Pennsylvania boat registration purposes)? I've got the HIN, but can't seem...

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    Thanks, I'm now watching that eBay listing...though I'm hoping to locate something locally via Craigslist or Freecycle...as I've seen this stuff pop up from time to time...just didn't need it then. Not in any sort of rush, since I've still got the fully operational Sailfish, Pirateer...and...

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    Thanks, yeah...you're right...the Sailfish gear does not fit the Sunfish...though I imagine the sail itself would be interchangeable. I've looked everywhere, and no data plate/HIN can be found...but two of you have suggested it's likely a 1968 now, which I greatly appreciate your hypothesis on.

    Thanks, and you're right...my Sunfish appears to look just like your's!

    Harbor Freight Sunfish Trailer

    Very interesting, Sailandsurf_89. I'd always wondered how those incredibly inexpensive, new HF trailers would hold up. Apparently they don't.

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    Hello again, everyone! I figured since you were all so helpful last time...perhaps you could help me again. Our Sailfish has been doing wonderfully by the way. I couldn't resist taking free ownership of what I'm hypothesizing to be an old Alcort Sunfish yesterday, which the owners of ten...

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    Had her out today, and she did well! The only thing I noticed (besides the missing brass chain, thanks SailtheFish...I'll need to fabricate one of those, as the string I'd used broke, but pin still intact)...is that the cables in the rear, which used to be fully coated in plastic have worn down...

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    THANK-YOU SailTheFish!!! I looked over her w/a fine tooth comb, searching the Transom, etc (everywhere I'd read the HIN would be on these), and you're officially THE ONLY source who seems to have pointed this Serial Number out! I had hypothesized her being a 1959, but now stand corrected, able...

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    Thanks Everyone! I delved deeper, and also reviewed numerous other website, including but not limited to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailfish_%28sailboat%29 and also called both current authorities (Sunfish and Laser Performance), and have come to the conclusion it's a 1959. I've also...

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    ...Also, as I look at Sunfish & Sailfish in Instagram, it's also important to point out the top of our's is flat, and has no cutout/s for feet or storage.

    1959 vs. 1960 Alcort Sailfish Identifier?

    A long-time family friend just blessed me with his elderly parent's "Alcort, Inc. Sailfish" yesterday. I've since studied the "Evolution of the Sunfish," article, http://kb.sunfishforum.com/images/history/timeline.pdf and believe I've narrowed it down to being a 1959 or 1960 model. How can I...
