a thread started over in the Laser Forum:
Strange goings-on in the Sunfish class | SailingForums.com
apparently a big shakeup between the Sunfish Class (ISCA) and Laser Performance - with LP now starting control of their own version of the Sunfish Class (ISCO?).
pretty cool Sunfish t-shirt for sale at J Crew (no Sunfish logo on the image, but they do call it a "Sunfish" sailing t-shirt).
Just got back from a week's vacation on Lake Michigan. Perfect beach weather, but winds/waves/schedule only gave me 2 chances to sail, my son went out 1 more time but it was pretty light winds. We sailed one evening together as the sun was starting to set - me on the Sunfish (white sail) and...
Over this weekend, I needed to get my Super Porpoise out of the way to get my Sunfish and Minifish ready to take on vacation to Lake Michigan. my barn is in a bit of a disarray right now, so my best option seemed to be storing the boat vertically. I know it's been talked about various times on...
did everyone else see the new stand up paddle boards (SUP) that Laser Performance is planning to start producing?
I'm not sure why they've chosen to piggy back on the Sunfish name, but they are calling it the "world of Sunfish", and maybe hope to help push the SUP sales by calling it a...
a reader of my Sunfish sailing blog sent me a couple pictures of a mystery boat that they own. any clues?
the reader described it as a scow, similar to a Butterfly
approximately 12-feet long, wood construction
aluminum mast and spars for a lateen rig
a (ridiculously!) large rudder and...
does anyone have a .jpg or .pdf or similar version of the Minifish logo? I have a Minifish sail, so if need be will have to go and make a tracing of it, but wanted to see first if anyone else out there already has an electronic version they would be willing to share.
saw this on Instagram - Colie Sails custom made a shower curtain to look like a Sunfish sail.
not sure I would have picked those colors, but that's a pretty sweet idea for a cottage or maybe a nautical themed bathroom!
so I finally sketched up details for the handle that I added to my Sunfish PVC dolly.
you can download (for free!) a .pdf sketch of the PVC dolly and the PVC handle at my blog post:
I took a screenshot of this from one of my GoPro videos from last summer - one of the calmest days I have ever seen on Lake Michigan. I was in the Sunfish with one of my sons, and my oldest son was drifting along in the Minifish.
So is someone from this forum selling copies of my plans for building a PVC dolly for Sunfish on eBay? Recently a kind soul alerted me to this eBay posting:
I didn't pay them $5 to see "their" plans, but that photo is stolen right off of my Sunfish sailing blog.
I offer my plans for free at my...
Well crap. I picked up a very nice Minifish last Thanksgiving as a gift for my boys and have somehow kept it hidden from them all year.
I got it out today to prep it for them, and was going to install a mainsheet block and remove the hook.
I thought I would cut in an inspection port...
