So I am selling my Starfish (sunfish clone) sailboat. I have my ad on CL and this guy contacted. Wants me to meet an hour away. Talks a big game of how wealthy he is but makes all sort so excuses as to why he can't pay cash. He has sent me his address, name, phone so on so forth about how...
I haven't gone sailing since September of 2017.
I have a sunfish clone a starfish. Sits in the garage on a trailer.
I just dont think I want to go anymore.
Wife wants me to just keep the boat, but I see storage space I could use for other things.
I did a search but didnt yield the results I was hoping for.
I was curious what kind of shoes most of you wore to go sailing in.
Being in Texas our lakes our mostly nasty clay, or shoe sucking muck.
I rarely if ever get to just step from dock to boat to get in.
I usually have to get...
My wife is going to make bags for my sails, spars and blades. I was looking at the bag for the rudder blade and I am curious what folks do with their tiller handle? Do you unbolt it to place it in the bag?
Went sailing yesterday and for the first time I noticed my butt was sore.
I looked at the sailing shorts, WOW on pricing for those bad boys.
I ran across this stuff when googling padding: Swim Platform Pad Sheet Material – SeaDek Marine Products
Anyone try something like this, looks...
Just searched CL on a lark and found a guy with a Starfish sail for sale. I asked if he would swap me for a sunfish sail. He agreed and now I have the sail and spars that go with my Starfish sailboat. Very excited to take the boat out on the lake.
When I bought my starfish last summer I built a couple of cradles to carry the boat. They bolt on using locking wing nuts. The cradles are 2x6 studs glued and screwed together and covered with outdoor carpet. Now I can off load the boat in the garage when I need to use the trailer...
So I picked up a Starfish sailboat last summer with a Sunfish sail. Had it out couple of times and now reading the forum and learning about the rig I noticed my goose neck isnt snug on the lower boom. I checked and the fastening screw is as tight as it will go. So now I dont know if i have...
Anyone here sail off of any of the Texas state parks or other RV beach parks off the Texas coast?
I have always done all my sailing on the Texas lakes.
Do you have a state park or RV park that was nice and didnt hassle you about using the boat dolly to get to the beach?
Anyone know what size bailer would work on a starfish hull?
Also going to install a hiking strap to it. I am guessing or hoping this clone is constructed similar on the inside as a sunfish. Anyone on here have a starfish they have added the items?
I picked up a minifish last summer. I bought it because this guy was looking to get rid of the two boats he had. I don't really need the minifish but seems no one else is interested in it either when I have listed it.
