    Looking for a boom for an early 80's sunfish

    Not sure which way I want it to go, a new company that takes better care of the brands or LP limping along with the same issues. Shipping was a good amount more than the boom itself, that's what sealed the decision to buy the one I found when I found it.

    Looking for a boom for an early 80's sunfish

    Thank you for the offer, I ended up biting the bullet and buying a boom. Last one the marine store had, they said they have been having trouble getting parts for a few years now and when he looked at the supplier site for laser performance he said it stated they had declared bankruptcy. So i...

    GEORGIA Looking for a boom for an early 80's sunfish

    Snapped my boom at the gooseneck and a need a replacement, I'm in the Atlanta area. I only get to sail this boat about a week a year and would hate to have to spring for a new boom.

    What year is my Sailfish?

    That in itself may give you a date range, as in there were no serial numbers before X date. There is a sunfish timeline in here somewhere that goes over serial numbers that seems to apply to both sunfish and sailfish, that may help.

    What year is my Sailfish?

    Unfortunately we were below the level of whisper, I came out of the cove I was in and caught some wind for about 300 yards and then it died, had to paddle back in. The slight wind that brought me out was enough to tell me I'll like the boat. The local lake is kind of closed in so I have to...

    What year is my Sailfish?

    So finally got the boat on the water and a couple of things stood out. 1. It seems to be water tight, no leaks. 2. It works great as a paddle board and swim platform for the kids. 3. Not very useful as a sailboat if there is no wind!

    What year is my Sailfish?

    Thanks, I had seen the serial numbers in the sunfish timeline, but hadn't seen where there was a fiberglass boat in '57, so I thought maybe those serial numbers were sunfish only. Just bought a new sail from Neil Pryde, going to try to get it on the water on Monday.

    What year is my Sailfish?

    Also the mast surround seems to be one piece with the deck.

    What year is my Sailfish?

    I just bought a super sailfish and don't know the year, haven't seen any serial numbers on it but it's been raining since I picked it up this weekend. It has an elephant ear rudder, aluminum mast and spars and a rotted sunfish sail. On first glance the boat appears to be fiberglass as the top...
