    Sunfish Weight

    I brought home another Sunfish. It was in dry storage for 12 years. 1968 model. I also have a sunfish I picked up that was left under a porch. 1966 model. I cannot believe the difference in the weight of the two. The 1968 is 120 lbs. The other is much heavier.

    Drying out a Sunfish.

    Just a thought? Has anyone tried using a room dehumidifier to such the moisture out of the hull? I am contemplating options. Thank You!
