    Trailer vs Dolly for Boat Ramp Launch

    Got to the lake safe and sound with the boat on a Dynamic Dolly on a 6' x 10' utility trailer. And I've sailed three times and not capsized yet! Thanks for all the encouragement, everybody.

    1982 Sunfish halyard and mainsheet

    Thanks! Yes, I think from what I've read on this site that I should get a longer mainsheet than what comes in the line kits, probably about 33', so I'd be buying the mainsheet and halyard separately. For recreational sailing does the rope brand matter very much?

    1982 Sunfish halyard and mainsheet

    I recently bought a 1982 Sunfish with what I'm pretty sure are the original halyard and mainsheet. Both lines are off-white color. The halyard looks like twisted 3-strand and appears to be 3/16" diameter. The mainsheet is some type of double-braid and appears to be 5/16" diameter. I was...

    Deck Scrap Piece

    Anybody know where I could get a scrap piece of fiberglass decking so I can practice attaching trim, drilling holes, etc. Maybe a piece about 8" x 10" for easy mailing? A larger piece or 3-4 pieces would be even better.

    Repair Cockpit Aluminum Trim

    I just bought a 1982 Sunfish that is in great shape. But it had been sailed in salt water and was then in storage for many years. The mainsheet hook and aluminum cockpit trim appear to have been touching and both got badly corroded. I was able to clean up the mainsheet hook but the aluminum...

    New Mainsheet

    Do most people get a halyard and mainsheet that are the same color, or is there some advantage in getting them in different colors? It seems to me that both ropes in the same color scheme would look nicer.

    New Mainsheet

    Thanks so much. The West Coast Sailing photo gallery was very interesting and informative. My Sunfish does not yet have a mainsheet block but I'm planning to add one this Fall.

    New Mainsheet

    I want to replace my mainsheet. Anyone know where I can get 30' (or whatever's a good mainsheet length) of 8mm Orion 300 in white-and-blue or just white with an integrated spliced on sunfish snap hook? Here's a link to the rope I think would be good, but I don't know where to get the snap hook...

    Trailer vs Dolly for Boat Ramp Launch

    I've just bought my first Sunfish which I trailered home 200 miles in a utility trailer, since it didn't come with a boat trailer. I'm going to try a dolly that will roll onto the utility trailer, then leave the Sunfish on the dolly chained to a tree at our local lake until Fall, then roll the...
