    Mystery sail rig

    Good evening gentlemen. This is a little off but I have recently come into a pile of sailing equipment, sails rigging from an older sailor who moved away. Here are some pics of a rig I found and have no idea what it is. It is quality made and appears to be all mahogany but needs varnish. It has...

    Scorpion sailboat

    You can temp tie the sail to the boom with small cord like para. I can't tell but pic looks like he is about to tackle or really close to the wind. The sail is not really fully foiled. My fave color combo on a scorpion.

    Boat Pics

    Ahhhhh. Still...I would just swing in and point windward, dump the sail. Even the guy supposing to set the example was fighting lines all over and seemed to struggle. Clear the decks, plan your landing/offloading. I don't want to be too critical of the person in the videos, just the technique...

    WTH??? Both these look like they've been drinking all day. Too much line and confusion on deck. Its not that hard. I grew up launching and beaching in the Florida surf. Head in...steady...pull the dagger as needed , let the rudder come up ...hit the beach at same time let the sheet out fully...

    Storing boat on starboad side

    I'm hurting for space. (13 boats) Does it harm a sunfish to store the hull on edge on the starboard (drain) side. Will it tend to warp or do damage?

    Scorpion sailboat

    If I were never going to pull it apart again I would use thixo or west 610 but if there is a possibility go with something like 4200 or 5200 in some cases.

    The Final Hurdle - Boat Trailer

    Agree w tag. If I were to buy a trailer to haul a sunfish I would most definately buy a utility style and modify to a multi purpose. Also they are easier to sell when not needed. And very useful for lots of other things. More positives than a single use dedicated sunfish trailer.

    Adding a mast cleat

    Thanks Beeler2. I'm glad its over. Lol. Now I can teach the grandkids how to sail. That was the goal.. Thats the original 45 year old sail. Its on its last leg but I tried to preserve it. The tac and 3 more gromets were torn out and 2 holes repaired. I wish the fish was more visible.
