    Testing out the new(used) sail

    Oh, it gets beautiful here most years, but the last few have not been that great.

    Testing out the new(used) sail

    Here I have the new (used) sail with clear window installed that I acquired on this forum. A couple small holes need to be patched but so far so good. Had to use a few zip ties due to some broken shower curtain rings but they work fine.

    Worth restoring??

    That'll totally buff right out. :eek:

    $100 Sunfish?!

    The trailer is worth $100, but that hull looks like a lot of work and probably several hundred in materials by the time you turn the corner, not to mention time and labor but there is huge satisfaction in salvaging things sometimes.

    Aqua Finn in Midland, Michigan - Craigslist ad, Not mine.

    Very few YouTube videos of the Aqua Finn, but I did see one that ended and showed a photo of a broken cast-aluminum rudder mount. I'm glad I got my Sunfish (for less than half this one) but I'm not ashamed to admit had I come across this one I might have paid it a visit for a look-see :eek:

    No, the mast is the mast and the upper boom is the upper boom.

    Only an hour from me but I'm not ready to achieve fleet status, yet. I mean, my god, I already own two sails. :D

    Nice haul getting both!

    Gosh, it's too bad you don't have anywhere beautiful to sail. :D:D

    sunfish for two?

    I saw those and wondered how well they worked. I might 3D print something along those lines just for fun.

    I just got two of them from Intensity for about $8 total and problem solved.

    Repair advice needed

    Well, no water came out of the deck drain the other day, and I always lift my boat up onto it's rack I made after sailing and I don't notice it getting any heavier and can't hear any water sloshing around. Maybe the foam is slowly absorbing it. I'm sure with heavier wave chop or sailing...

    Repair advice needed

    This is the nose damage that was on my boat when I bought it. Why does it look worse to me now than the day I bought it? :eek: I'm getting ready to do something about it and want to see what the veterans here think I should do and what materials might be needed... I'm having fun sailing...

    Beat up used Sunfish vs. Newport Panther - is it worth it?

    This would be a great project boat but not your primary ride, IMHO. Spend a few hundred more like Wavedancer said and proudly get out sailing in a $500 sail-ready boat with updated rudder, cuddy storage, newer bailer, and one with the critical front handle already installed.

    Here's why my bailer wasn't working right

    I took my cockpit bailer apart to replace the o-ring and ball seal and this is what was in there. Crushed, deformed right out of service. Someone apparently didn't know how to get the ball seal back in correctly.

    Drain Plug Removal &/or Repair

    Got it! It fought me like a bugger, then I got lucky... Turns out (pun) that if you insert a paper towel into the drain screw slot before the screwdriver there is a ton more friction and that kept the screwdriver from twisting out of the brass :) I felt it give and turn about 20...

    I used the Intensity Sails 3" cleat on the mast and it seems to work fine. I rig the halyard with a trucker's hitch loop and the cleat takes the pressure no problem but an aluminum cleat would be nice, too.
