    Tips for winter sailing

    My apologies if this has been covered in previous threads. I tried searching but did not find anything super helpful. I am looking to make sailing a 3 (or hopefully 4) season activity, and I am looking for recommendations on what to wear that won't cost me an arm and a leg. Do people use dry...

    PENNSYLVANIA Wooden Sunfish Mast and Spars

    Hi All, I have been on the hunt for the original wooden mast and booms for my wooden sunfish. I have seen them on here in the past, but I would love to find a set with the original bronze hardware as well. If anyone has them and wants to sell them, please let me know. Thanks!

    I didn’t bother trying to unscrew them since they felt like they were epoxied in place. Plus there are a few extra screws. Thanks for the tip about the discount in TotalBoat!!! I’ll definitely message you next time I need something. Till then, I hope you enjoyed my little restoration!!!

    My Wooden Sunfish Restoration

    The deck proved to be much harder and more difficult than I had expected it to be. I tried getting the loose chips of paint off, but realized I would just have to scrape all the paint off. The hot Pennsylvania sun did half the work for me. Scraping while the sun beat down every afternoon made...

    Here's some before and after pictures of me painting the underside of the woody. I used TotalBoat WetEdge Topside Paint from Jamestown Distributors. They have a great reputation for customer service. I called on several occasions and they were able to offer me advice on my restoration. Looking...

    My Wooden Sunfish Restoration

    Hey Charlie, I'll take a look at the rudder hardware and figure out the problem. I haven't thought of a good name for the wooden one just yet. I've been looking at popular songs and names from '64 but I'm not sold on anything just yet. I want to find a name with a little meaning to it, and I...

    My Wooden Sunfish Restoration

    The fiberglass sunfish sails like new! I'm jealous of her cam cleat, I want to put one on the woody but I want to sail it like the day it was built. My dad and I used to sail the woody together when I was younger and couldn't handle it myself. I plan on taking it out this week for the first time...

    My Wooden Sunfish Restoration

    Hey everyone, I haven't posted much on here before, but I wanted to share some pictures and detail about my recently restored wooden sunfish. I got lucky enough to find a wooden sunfish when I was 14, long before I knew how rare or cool they really were. I found it at the Chesapeake Bay...

    Wooden Sunfish Rubrail

    Anyone know what wooden sunfish had for rubrails (or if they had them at all)? Mine has a rubrail that feels like a piece of molding, and it needs replacing. Any thoughts? -Mark

    Original Sailfish Sail

    Here is the tag on the sale. It feels like my other dacron sails. It has some stains and the wear you'd expect from a 50 year old sail. You can tell it was used. Not sure if i definitely want to sell just yet. Part of me has always wanted to get an original wooden sailfish. I have a wooden...

    Original Sailfish Sail

    Any idea how much a 65 square foot Sailfish sail is worth? I got one by accident when I meant to buy one for my Sailfish MKII. It's all white with the sailfish logo.
