    Quaddie Trailer

    I want a trailer that will haul four Sunfishes, or more. I settled on four, although I might be able to add more on later, that is good enough for now. I want it for a number of reason. One is a good way to store these boats full time. I can shrink wrap the whole thing in the fall and forget...

    Scored a Touchdown - New Aluminum Trailer for free

    I bought a Red Sunfish from a fellow in a nearby town last year. The one I call Canada. Which I have not worked on at all this year. The fellow and his wife became Facebook friends with me. And we have stayed in touch. He called me an offered me a "free Sunfish". It turned out to be a Sailfish...

    I have a Sailfish Rudder (Old style) and Daggerboard for sale. Tiller is still attached and a bit beat up. I do not have the bronze mount for the boat side of this pintle/gudgeon--only the pintle attached to the rudder. If there is interest, I will post pictures.

    How to spot someone drowning...something we all should know.

    The new captain jumped from the cockpit, fully dressed, and sprinted through the water. A former lifeguard, he kept his eyes on his victim as he headed straight for the owners who were swimming between their anchored sportfisher and the beach. “I think he thinks you’re drowning,” the husband...

    CANADA Boat

    Here is my $150 project boat I have named Canada because of the Red and White Paint scheme. I was thinking about parting the boat out, and then decided to restore it, but I enjoy that, not that I need another Sunfish--this is #7. I have a Canadian friend I was going to give the boat to, but...

    Bottle port

    Has anybody else installed a Bottleport on their Sunfish? I saw a thread on this topic and could not post to it. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it is not available in white. Cost is a little pricey too. However I'm pretty happy with this one. I haven't used it yet...

    I've been working on DIXIE, a Sunfish that was given to me by a nice couple from my yacht club. I hope to return the favor at some point. It is a nice looking grey on grey boat with blue stripes. Yesterday I installed a hiking strap, drain plug, inspection port/bottleport, harken 205 swivel...

    Bought a "like-new" 1983 Sunfish

    I am up to six [6] of these boats now.--which was my goal. I really didn't want to buy another Sunfish just yet, but I could not pass this one by as it met my price/condition specification and had a galvanized trailer. It is a 1983 that has only been in the water twice--I'm told. Based on...

    Bailer Balls

    I am not particularly impressed by the bailer on any of my Sunfishes. I've seen people stuff styrofoam in there to try to put the ball in the right place to try and make it work. Now I see a new product with is a donut shape black plastic part that encircles the ball and I'm told attaches to...
