    Two adults carrying a sunfish 50 yards on land?

    it would not be easy and the other person would run the other way the next time they saw you and your Sunfish appear. Find a good Sunfish or Laser dolly with wheels intended for the beach and you will sail much more often. And others will be happy to help you launch. :)

    Installing Hiking Strap on Old Sunfish

    I have a 6” port behind the combing and can reach the front of the cockpit. I saw the kit on Vela, but it out of stock. I believe I have all of the material, but like instructions. :)

    Installing Hiking Strap on Old Sunfish

    Does anyone happen to have the APS instructions for installing their Hiking Strap Retrofit Kit? I think I have all of the parts (not from APS since they are out of business), but the instructions would be nice to review before installing. Thanks!

    Summer Sailing

    I don’t think Sunfish sailing can get any better than this. I was out with our daughter recently just having fun. I moved the halyard from the racing position to have more room for us. She sailed last Friday with my wife during our club’s Sunfish races and loved it. She also enjoys sailing Optis...

    Removing sail clips?

    Thank for sharing. I found one online and it arrived. Came in the original box. I’ll try it out this weekend.

    Why Start A Sunfish Fleet?

    I am new to Sunfish, as of last August we we purchased our 1976 for me to get out on the lake more. We have a Thistle I crew on, but most only want to go out for races. I loved my time and spent hours out last fall. Then in November after watching Sunfish Worlds update in October I talked my...

    Laser vs Sunfish Seitech dolly

    Thanks for this update. I am going to try with an extra V brace I have and see if it helps with a Sietech laser dolly I am using with my 1976 Sunfish.

    Why Start A Sunfish Fleet?

    The number of Sunfish is growing at our club and the question has come up if we should become an official Sunfish Fleet. We need at least five Sunfish Class members to start a fleet (I do not find any info on the class website), so before I encourage others to join the class I wanted to...

    Removing sail clips?

    Alan, where is this said tool? I have not seen it on any of the FB marketplace adds. :) One of the very experienced Sunfish sailors, Ron McHenry, has a modified paper hole punch that he uses. I tried it and it worked fairly well. Maybe I need to ask him to duplicate his and buy it from him.

    Is this a scam?

    And another I reported as a scam. If a lot of us report we can shut them down. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1345637905927437/

    Is this a scam?

    Sorry to hear this. I have been suspicious of all of the cheap Sunfish sails and other items. I will start reporting and we should all do so.

    Old sails and tacking?

    I think this is a common challenge, even more in waves. I have experienced this. Recently we were discussing this with an experienced Sunfish sailor and she said, "Tack like you mean it!" I think of that when tacking in higher winds and push the tiller over hard until the sail fills again...

    Laser vs Sunfish Seitech dolly

    The HF3 fits the shape of all Sunfish, so it will provide better support that the laser handle fitting that has a larger radius. The older Sunfish do not have the notch for the fitting to fit in, so the older boats do not hold well on it while moving. I look forward to hearing how it works for...

    Laser vs Sunfish Seitech dolly

    We have a 2008 Sunfish (rolled edge) on a Dynamic Sunfish dolly. And I just purchased a used Laser Seitech dolly for our second 1976 Sunfish (aluminum trim edge). Like you have discovered it will not stay on the Laser handle bracket (Seitech P01) while rolling. I tied it very tight and it...

    Sunfish Sail Storage (off the spars/booms)

    What is the recommended way to store an extra Sunfish sail that is not on the spars/booms? Roll it? Fold it? Or a combination? We currently have two well-used recreational sails and one used race sail. I would like them to not take much room, but also want to keep them in as good as condition...

    Sunfish Logo Template

    I read about a Sunfish Logo template being available in a Yahoo group. Does anyone know where to get a copy of the file? Thanks. https://my2fish.wordpress.com/2011/06/08/making-a-sunfish-sail-logo/
