I got the typical: I will send you a money order for triple the price and you send me the excess back. I will have my shipper arrange delivery. Does anyone fall for that one anymore? Is usually the first one within a day.
So I am selling my Starfish (sunfish clone) sailboat. I have my ad on CL and this guy contacted. Wants me to meet an hour away. Talks a big game of how wealthy he is but makes all sort so excuses as to why he can't pay cash. He has sent me his address, name, phone so on so forth about how...
I haven't gone sailing since September of 2017.
I have a sunfish clone a starfish. Sits in the garage on a trailer.
I just dont think I want to go anymore.
Wife wants me to just keep the boat, but I see storage space I could use for other things.
I sailed Aquafinns as a youth. I loved the rudder and its ability to use a line to pull it up. My Dad donated a bunch to Boy Scout camps when I was in high school. About 25 years later those boats were still being used. I saw them at camp so they hold up pretty well.

makes it a nightmare to transport.
My wife is going to make bags for my sails, spars and blades. I was looking at the bag for the rudder blade and I am curious what folks do with their tiller handle? Do you unbolt it to place it in the bag?
I specifically wanted this Snoopy image so I googled it and found a place that makes it.
The snoopy image is vinyl. I found the lettering again with google that had the Peanuts font.
As for sunlight and fading I will never know because my boat stays in the garage.
The boat is only out for...
Went sailing yesterday and for the first time I noticed my butt was sore.
I looked at the sailing shorts, WOW on pricing for those bad boys.
