    New sail

    My new Intensity Sails sail arrived today. Woohoo! I can't believe how much difference there is in the crispness of the sails. My old sail was about as worn 20 year old seedy hotel bedsheet.

    New Sunfish owner

    Just bought a '77 model Sunfish. I have never sailed one before, so I have been perusing the forums to learn all I can. I also own a Hobie 16 so I do know a little about sailing. :) I have been cleaning her up and decided to remove the splash rail in order to clean off old caulk and grime. I...
