    Really nice wood Sunfish on Craigslist (not mine)

    Need Sailfish parts

    I have an old wooden sailfish hull I plan to restore and I am looking for a rudder, tiller, daggerboard, and the bronze hangers that go on the hull of a Sailfish. Not looking to spend a whole lot of money this boat was a barn find. If you have any of these parts lying around shoot me an email.

    Repairing Crack In Fiberglass

    My Sunfish has a small vertical crack in the laminate running about 2" up from the chine on one side where it bumped something that knocked some gelcoat off.
