    Video: How To Get In Way Over Your Head... Literally

    It's the guys with four or five milk jugs on the mast top I give a wide berth to. They do have strong bones, though.

    Video: How To Get In Way Over Your Head... Literally

    The ghost of old hull numbers

    Interesting, the Craftsmen era projects reflected the same philosophy, they would often design in an intentional "flaw" in a project to convey that only God could create perfection. Fun to try and find them.

    Newly Acquired Sunfish

    Not clear from the thread to date if your bow handle backing block is reasonably intact; if it is, you might consider my solution... I used EZ-Lok threaded inserts and new bolts all in stainless. They also have brass which are more affordable and perhaps more easily sourced. Search EZ-Lok on...

    The ghost of old hull numbers

    I'd give the bleach a try. May do it with little to no effort. (Looks like a sweet, vintage 911 is hiding behind your 'fish.)

    Sunfish Tools...

    I have one of these. Most useful for handing to people and seeing how many of the 20 "tools" they can find.

    Refinishing Super Sunfish

    Roger that. I've buffed out a test patch and it doesn't seem slippery, but the real test of course will be on the water.

    Cutting back the Tiller

    "Cutting back the tiller" sounds like one of those old cliches of nautical origin... "Now that Jack is retired, he's sure cutting back the tiller." ;)
