    Looking for information on Alcort Catfish

    Red gelcoat (more than some other colors) tends to fade to pink over time so you will need to go to a much brighter red to get back to original. Signal Charlie here on this Forum is the resident Catfish guru. He will probably chime in. Alan Glos Cazenovia, NY

    Need a Sunfish Mast

    One idea. Go to a few of your local moving companies and sere if they have a move scheduled from Syracuse, NY to your area. Sometimes they will add a few small items for a very modest price and you can pick it up at their warehouse when the truck arrives. I once had a Sunfish hull moved from...

    F250 meets Sunfish rudder bracket

    Sun1fish's suggestion should work but be gentle as you don't want to crack the fiberglass surrounding the bracket. Removing the bracket is no big deal as the 4 stainless screws attach to a threaded plate finerglassed into the inside of the transom. If you remove the bracket, clamp it in a vice...

    Smaller arm Harken swivel mainsheet cleat

    OK. I will buy a buy a 205 base; I already have a newer Harken ratchet block that will pair nicely with this base, Related: It is possible to put the cam cleat on the bottom of the arm, lead the sheet through the slot on the arm and pull "up" to cleat and "down" to uncleat. If this were not...

    Rudder pieces, what boat??

    These are not genuine Sunfish or Sailfish rudder fittings. They probably go to a Sunfish "clone: of some sort but not a common one like the Phantom, Viking etc. Sorry I can't be more specific. Alan Glos Cazenovia, NY

    Different types of Sunfish coamings?

    I have handled hundreds of these Sunfish coamings over the years and they are remarkably similar. Some older ones only had gelcoat on the "up" side but other than that, the shape have stayed the same. Maybe you have one from a "clonefish." Post a few photos if you can. Alan Glos Cazenovia, NY

    May Buy This Sunfish Thoughts?

    Hmmmm. I think this boat may have been built in Canada as the "09890" Hull ID number is not USA standard format. Others here on the forum may know fore sure. Maybe make a separate post to ask. Alan Glos

    May Buy This Sunfish Thoughts?

    It sure looks good. Concerns. The inspection ports may signal a problem in the past (leaking, needed to do an interior repair etc.) so ask the seller why the ports were installed and check the hull carefully, especially the mast hole; fill it with water to deck level and see if any drains out...

    Expired Marine Wood

    Mahogany is usually the wood of choice for a transom. Find a lumberyard in your area that sells hardwood or call a few cabinet makers in your area who may have some scraps at a decent price. Alan Glos Cazenovia, NY

    Winter Storage In New England

    If you store the boat outside, make sure it is not in a spot where ice builds up and then falls. I have seen two Sunfish hulls totaled by ice falling off an overhead roof. Be sure all the water is out of the inside of the hull and the mast hole. Expanding ice can do a lot of damage. Always...
