I have been thinking about installing a Harken 2135 ratchet block on my recently purchased 1975 sunfish. Not having any experience with a ratchet block, other than reducing the effort required to pull the mainsail in will it hold the line to allow you to free your hands up? If not, has anyone...
I have a 1975 sunfish I bought this summer. The hull is as dry as a bone. I want to add a ratchet for the mainsheet and was wondering if there is anyway to do this without cutting a 5" hole in the deck????
If I have to add the port where should it be placed?
After setting the boat up...
I have a 1976 Sunfish and was wondering if I should install inspection ports, what size, how many and where? Any direction would be helpful. After sailing the boat 3 times in a week I could hear a little water in the hull.
Thanks in advance :D
Just bought a "new to me" sunfish (1976) in great shape. Is it ok to store it on its side? The person I bought it from stored it this way to increase space in his garage. I built a small platform out of wood with eye hooks and use a strap to hold it in place. Any feed back would be appreciated:D
I want to start sailing and we have a lake near our house that only allows a mast height of 18' or less. I want a boat that will work on the lake and possibly in the ocean / bay when I advance. Is the sunfish mast height 18' or less and what other options are there?
Thanks in advance:D
