I built a dolly from Tag's design. I no longer have the boat but I still have the dolly. If anyone in New Hampshire wants it, make me an offer.
If you want a picture I can post one. I didn't paint it so it is not as nice looking as Tag's but it works.
The only Scorpion part I have left is the DePersia metal bailer and based on another thread I have a pretty good idea of what people think of those. (I was saving it if I ever needed it for another boat I don have any more).
Two things. OK three(or so) Thanks LVW for thinking of me. I don't have room for any more boats, I don't have any way to transport them, and I don't need any more project boats. Plus I'm not sure I want to talk to anyone that says that one of the boats has a rutter.
Keep the boat. My wife is not a sailor but she has been out with me a few times on my sunfish clone. We bought an O'Day Daysailer so she could sail with me. It needs work, so we haven't sailed it yet.
I haven't sailed much in the last 3 years, but 3 years ago I was hospitalized with a ruptured...
I've run into similar issues but fortunately, the lake I sail on has a boat ramp that is in a channel (no wake zone). This allows me to get away from shore, raise the sail and head for the middle of the lake before the wakes are an issue. If you can point the bow into the waves (regardless of...
I've never owned a Sunfish, but I have owned a Phantom, a Scorpion and I now own a Viking.
The website says The Phantom was one of the most popular sailboats ever produced.
I'm not sure I believe that. The only thing I still use from the Phantom is the eye strap on the upper boom to hold the...
I'll have to look and see what I have. I know I don't have a complete rudder setup, but I have some parts. At this point you may be better off converting to a Sunfish rudder.
If you needed a daggerboard, I do have a couple of those.
My Phantom had a fairlead next to the mast step, and opening in the coaming and a cleat right behind it. You could easily drop the sail from the cockpit, but raising it was another story. I used to raise the sail on the water, but I had to climb out on the deck next to the mast.
