    Calling St. Pete FL folks

    I’ll be heading to St.Pete for a work trip in April. Is there anywhere to rent a Sunfish/Laser or Hobie Wave sized boat for an afternoon?

    Question What is the fastest a Sunfish can go?

    How do I respond? “They say the two best days of boat ownership are the day you buy it, and the day you sell it. This is only said of power-boats. Every day on a sailboat is the best day of ownership.” And/or “Anybody can crush nature’s will with enough fuel, eagerness, and money. It takes...

    Right On Trailer?

    I have a home built trailer that is similar to the idea of the right-on. All launching is done with the Seitech dolly with the “offroad” tires. Dolly us supported near the forward end and under the crossbar. I’ve added the multi-sport rack from right-on to Frankenstein so I could haul my...

    Jimmy Buffett Inspired

    Long ago, when I was a young Joe, I stepped on parts of my male anatomy and was awarded a 14 day vacation from anything enjoyable. I was living in a plywood sea-hut overlooking the Caribbean, walking amongst the gravel to share a shower with a 5’ long iguana, meant that 14 days lasted an...

    Can this be repaired?

    Cut the cross bar off just forward of the weld, grab a piece of tube to match, weld on, paint/coat/galvanize, something, profit. Just make sure you vent well and wear a respirator when welding, galvanized can wreck your head. If length matters weld the new cross bar to the end of the rails...

    Back Burnered Project Boat.. Picked up another.

    Too Quick to Cut

    I’m looking at having to cut the keel under the cockpit to repair some cracking due to an errant trailer roller. Also going to replace the deck block for the halyard eye fairlead and cleat.

    Sunfish Variant?

    Hydra-Sail is the maker. Model so far I can see is a “17-1” based on this Craigslist ad. Copied to forum for prosperity.

    The No Stupid Questions Thread

    thinking of winter and building a rack to hold the sunfish. Is there an issue of storing on their side supported by the edge of the hull? Is the rolled gunwale enough to support the boat? Is the older aluminum gunwale coping enough to support things (I have both)?

    Issues with ordering from Sail Racing

    to be killed one must first be alive. UPS/FEDEX customer service was trash when I was in the shipping/receiving world in 08. It just got worse.

    The No Stupid Questions Thread

    Good question. When I popped the caps on my 76’s mast to “flip it” I found chunks of cork that were quite dry. Read on this forum that’s to seal them. Got me thinking… wonder if a pool noodle, or part thereof slipped into the mast would prevent any sinkage for when Murphy comes to kick me...
