    Moving a Sunfish

    That rack must have a hell of a load rating. That whaler trailer combo looks like a crimping tool. Keep us up on how it goes and send us that guys contact if all goes well. I still wish you wernt moving away from me down here before we got to visit. GOOD LUCK!

    Best sail tape?

    Thanks beldar. That's the info I was looking for. I like things that first work and hold up then are cheap and then cosmetically dont look like a wart on my nose. Lol I think your suggestion can be done and meet those requirements. Especially with help from my re connection. They will get me...

    Best sail tape?

    Thanks Alan. I just got on the interweb and did a search for sail repair. I'm in panama city FL. Turns out the old sail and canvas place I dealt with back in 1976 is still in business. I thought they were long gone years ago. They moved closer to the air base and water. I called and they will...

    Best sail tape?

    Thanks luke, I just looked it up. I was hoping to find a more economical way to get the job done. The tape is $15 and flat rate shipping is $15. Then I have to get gromets and a tool. By then it looks like I'm well on my way to the price of $119. sail from insanity. My budget is swelling already...

    Best sail tape?

    Hey guys I almost hate to ask this but I know nothing about it and have never used it. Suggestions for the best quality most reasonably priced white sail tape. It will be folded over the edge of my sail to repair gromets. I have 3 pull-outs. I probably won't need much. You know best. Thanks

    My new project boat.

    Wow. Cool custom color job. I'm thinking about getting the white $119. Racing sale from infinity. It doesnt have the sunfish on it. I would like to cut a custom green one to match my boat.

    Substitute knot for mast cleat

    Sailflow, I'm not sure where you mostly sail, but we are on the gulf coast all salt water and its devastating to these old boats. That's why you dont find many here. If you the the rings are damaged and corroded badly. I personally dont want to give it a place to start if I can help it or my...

    Substitute knot for mast cleat

    That was exactly my thought L. I just can't find what kind of knot it was or how he tied it. It was a self gripping wrap and had a loop that stayed in place to run the haliard through when rigging for the day. I've searched a bunch of you tube vids and cant find a demo or mention of it. It...

    My new project boat.

    Good info. I'll make sure the first mate is around. I found the... by the foot colored tape. Ordering this morning when I get a break. I was wondering how good sail tape worked....if it was cheesy and would peel off in use or humidity down here in florida. Thanks

    Substitute knot for mast cleat

    I briefly saw someone on the interweb rigging a haliard and instead of having a cleat mounted on the mast they had a red rope tied to the mast in what appeared to be a clove hitch or some other knot and it had a ready made loop on it. The guy used it instead of a mast mounted cleat. I liked the...

    My new project boat.

    Wow. I guess my first step would be finding some sail repair tape. Next find a grommet tool and grommets. This will be a first for me.

    Matching stain for original 76 blades?

    Hey thanks. I just finished taking the blades to wood. Will wait till a stretch of low humidity days before putting on varnish, then try to match tiller as close as possible. I couldnt find any ash so I used some good tight grain white oak to cut exact patterns.

    Is anyone else frustrated with Sunfish parts supply houses?

    Dang SC. I could have used all that stuff to make my scorpion clonefish hull into a rig.

    Is anyone else frustrated with Sunfish parts supply houses?

    By the way that stool looks almost exactly like the one my dad built when I was a kid to shoe horses with. It was moved around the barn a million times.
