    Sunfish need a new name

    In recent news: “I think the name is incorrect. It’s a sun leviathan, it’s a sun monster, it’s no fish.”

    Got the bug. First trip out yesterday.

    Congrats on your first sail. To help with the mainsheet drooping, you can add mainsheet hangers. A few places online sell them, other people have come up with a way to 3D print them. I personally just used a couple of loose zip-ties and it worked just fine.
