    Tips for re-doing bottom of sunfish?

    I took my sunfish out of the water today. It spent 3 days in salt water in my slip here, and did 4 or 5 beach landings. The behr garage epoxy held up great to all of it. There were no blisters or bubbles from sitting in the water that others have described. The beach landings didn't peel...

    Sun Fish in the Ocean ????

    Just got back from a sail on my sunfish ~4-5 miles off coast to an Island, and then back again. Boat performed perfectly over and back. I wouldn't have even considered making the sail however if I did not have a buddy in another boat that could save me if something went wrong (broken master...

    How Many People Can Sunfish Really Carry?

    Honestly, I would say one. I've had two on my boat, and it was way too crowded to actually sail. I dont think I'd ever put two on the boat again...but that's just my opinion....

    How does the auto bailer work?

    Ah I didn't mean the drain, I meant the bailer. Perhaps I wasn't moving fast enough along for it to drain. Thanks!

    How does the auto bailer work?

    Went out yesterday in the 15-18mph winds we had here in Atlanta, and managed to flip the fish. She righted easily, however I was left with a cockpit full of water. I opened up the drain, but even under sail, it seemed as tho water came into the cockpit thru the hole, rather then exited. Is...
