    3-Loop Bridle

    I have a 1985 Sunfish "beach banger" (that I don't race) and it has the three loop bridle, and I will probably replace with a two loop bridle this spring (if we ever get spring here in Almost-Alaska-Upstate-NY.) My take is that the two loop rig is superior in almost all wind strengths, but...

    Age of Intensity Sunfish Sail

    OK, here's your chance to nerd out on some Sunfish trivia. I just purchased a brand new, still in the bag, all white race cut Intensity Sunfish sail from a guy who was selling a bunch of Sunfish parts and gear. It has a window and a nice, full size, black Sunfish logo, and I know that...

    Spring/Summer Sunfish/Sailfish Parts and Gear Sale

    Wayne, I just returned from my trip. I have a nice bow handle with only a little pitting for $10 + shipping but I am fresh out of the 7 1/2" bronze carriage bolt/wing nut assembly that you need to tension your keel and deck plate rudder fittings. Try Craig Obara ("Sailcrafty") at...

    Used Sunfish mast and spars

    Sunfish spars are considered oversized by USPS, FedEx and UPS and cost a fortune to ship so spars are pick-up only at my place in Cazenovia, NY. You might do better by finding a dealer in your area who sells new spars or check out Sunfish Direct or as the big shippers may give them a...

    Wooden Spars

    "Class Legal" Minifish sails in good shape with a crisp double fish logo are rare. Ask $150 for it. It will also fit a Sailfish (65 sq. ft.). The wood booms look to be original standard Sailfish spars. Also rare. Never seen a leather gooseneck. It would work but unlike the bronze...

    It's not a Sunfish, so what is it?

    Here are photos for the Sun Dolphin from the Shorty Pen website: Sun Dolphin By Sun Boatworks ShortyPen Sailboat Guide Check the specs to see if that matches what you have. In any event, your boat loos to be in good shape, but I think this is what you have, Alan Glos Cazenovia, NY

    Do I seal the foam or just cut and paste?

    I agree with Mike - no need to seal the edges of the foam you have cut through to install the port(s). If anything, the exposed foam will speed up the drying process a little. But do a simple leak test. Soap up the hull with a spray bottle of soapy water while blowing a little air into the...

    Wanted: Woody

    Another hint. You are more likely to find a wood Sunfish in the North East. Do a Craigs List search for NY, PA, CT, VT, NH, MA , MI and RI and you may find one. And then, road trip! Alan Glos

    Right On trailer

    For some reason, you almost never find a Right On trailer for sale used. The only ones I have seen also have a boat and dolly as part of the sale package. Beldar's suggestion (to look on the Laser Forum) is a good idea as these trailers can accommodate Sunfish or Lasers (or any boat that fits...

    Racing Watch Recommendation

    Thanks. This would be great for a larger boat, but I am rather tied to a wristwatch. Alan Glos

    Racing Watch Recommendation

    My trusty old Ronstan Clear Start racing countdown wristwatch finally died (leaked actually). I bought another Ronstan Clear Start but (a) it didn't work and (b) the instructions didn't match the watch and it was impossible to program (APSltd graciously allowed me to return it for a full...
