Alan, I am looking to find a few things for my sunfish. The first is the drain pulg assmebly with the plug. Also I need to track down the brass "clip" that is inside the cockpit that you put the mainsheet around. I also need to find all the hardware for the older rudder style. If you could help...
So to formally answer your question I would leave the gelcoat and original color there. So thats my opinion on what to do....
Message me if you have any other questions or need any more help!
Part 2 (This is a pain!)
Now, this way the cracks will return, it looks good for a few years but they will return. So when they do return I will just wetsand the clearcoat and re-clear the boat. If you want a permamant solution you will need to get into fiberglass work (Based on what my...

I have been working on my Sunfish in school, and I came across a problem.
I flipped it over to paint the bottom and noticed the a bolt was missing that holds the rudder assembly to the hull. Take a look...
Now I have no clue where the bolt is or how I could fix it. I figured I am most likely...
I'm interested in your blue splashguard and the mast. Also, I saw in your picture of the blue splashguard you had a halyard pully, bow handle and a leader. Are they still avalible and how much are you asking for them???
