    Question  Fatheading a pinhead Minifish cat rig

    So I bought this minifish2 (for those who don’t know what that is, which is likely most of you because this boat is incredibly uncommon, it’s a cat rig Minifish, see the attached photos) at the beginning of the summer and I’ve been sailing the hell out of it. I want to get a new sail for it...

    Wooden Sunfish Floor Boards

    So I am working on this wooden sunfish and it did not come with original floorboards. So I made some quick out of 1/4" okoume marine plywood and put a coat of primer on them. I know there should be finger holes but I'm not sure if I got the dimensions quite right and would appreciate any insight...

    Question  Sunfish similarities to the Butterfly?

    Hi all, I’m a complete beginner to sailing. My friend and I recently acquired a Sunfish but haven’t had a chance to take it out yet. I also recently went on a vacation at a lake house and had full access to a Butterfly sailboat for about a week. That was my first time ever sailing. I got used to...

    Vang Solution with a Deck Cleat Only?

    Hey Now, I rigged my sunfish for the first time this morning — just in time for the wind to die out. I followed a how-to video showing the rigging of a mast with a cleat on its side, but my boat only has a deck cleat, so the procedure for tying my vang had to differ. Eventually, I managed to...

    Old-Style Rudder Cheeks?

    Hey now, This 81 sunfish belonged to my late father. I took her on, and as I was prepping to sail later this week, I discovered there's no damn rudder cheek assembly (main bolt, tension springs, etc) — looks like he never got around to mounting his latest homemade blade. God knows where the...

    Paddling/Motoring from canal out to lake

    Hey everyone! New to the forum here. I've been sailing Sunfish on and off now for close to 10 years, and finally got the chance to buy my first boat.

    Help identify “sunfish” please

    Looking for help identifying a possible sunfish. I don’t know the full history but I’m guessing this boat is pre-1980’s given how long it’s been in our family. The molded coaming is throwing me, can’t seem to find anything definitive online. I do know the rudder bracket is custom made, so...

    Boat repair and upkeep - advice wanted!

    Howdy everyone! I am a counselor at a summer camp in Maine currently in possession of four sunfish sailboats.

    Hull Repair Advice for a "Sunfish Clone"

    Now before anyone gets mad at me for posting about an imitation sunfish in the Sunfish Forum, here me out! I have a Lockley-Newport Panther that is essentially the same thing as a Sunfish, so I imagine the hull repair would be the same, hence this seemed the most relevant place to ask. Also...

    Help identify this 1978 craft. Minifish or Flite 12?

    Hello, I have just purchased what was listed as a 1976 Sunfish. I have since learned that it was an inaccurate listing! I knew something was off when I bought it, but I just figured I was misremembering what a Sunfish looked like as I’ve only used one a few times and it was probably 10+ years...

    Wood roof-rack for Tacoma

    First post, just joined today. Heading to Lake Moomaw. My wife bought me a sunfish for $50. I was scared to open the sail bag, but turns out the sails are new. Lucky me! Boat has been sitting turned over in the woods in a pile of leaves for 3 years. I built a wood rack for it a couple of nights...
