    Help with tiller extension bolt

    I have taken some time off from restoring my ‘79 Sunfish, but I’m determined to get her in the water in June. Much of the work was cosmetic and/or replacing some old parts. I also had to repair the mast step and a few other things, but this forum was invaluable in helping me do it right. Last...

    SeaDek

    I am curious to hear from anyone that has ever installed Sea Dek on their Sunfish around the cockpit to keep from sliding in strong winds/rough seas? Several years ago SeaDek templated a kit that basically covers the entire top of a Sunfish. I looked at using some of the pieces they designed...

    Saw some Sunfish today...

    I was out for a cruise in my power boat today and came across some Sunfish racing in a regatta at the Rappahannock River Yacht Club on Carter’s Creek in Irvington, VA. Nice to see them out on the water. Thought y’all might like to see them too.

    1979 Sunfish restoration

    Thanks again for all your help with my questions in my previous thread. I thought I should start a new one since my questions/comments have shifted from identifying the year my Sunfish was manufactured to restoration. As a reminder, my 1979 Sunfish was used infrequently during the early years at...

    Need help with serial number...

    I recently acquired an AMF Alcort Sunfish the my parents purchased back in the late 80’s or early 90’s by my recollection. I have tried to research it, included the information posted in the FAQ section of this forum, but something doesn’t make sense. The serial number on my hull is...
