    Any idea what material I should use for this Sailfish part?

    I ve looked over the super sailfish plans but can’t find the dimensions or type of wood to replace the wooden strip that covers the hull halves and into which the aluminum rail gets screwed. I took the original one off the boat yesterday and the back half is dry rotted. I’m also concerned that...

    What year is my Sailfish?

    1960s Fiberglass Super Sailfish

    I have great memories of sailing a wooden Sailfish in Maine as a boy. After being out for few hours it would get waterlogged and I'd be sailing it back an inch or two under water. Maybe that is why LIFE Magazine referred to it as the "World's Wettest, Sportiest Boat". ;-) I purchased a 1960s...

    Sailfish vs. Sunfish dagger board

    Hey gang. I have heard that the fiberglass Sailfish had a different rudder assembly than the Sunfish so a Sunfish rudder would not work on a Sailfish, but I was wondering if the daggerboards were interchangeable?
