    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...

    TEXAS Sunfish Rudder Assembly (Or Rudder with)

    Hey Now, I'm bargain hunting to replace the missing rudder assembly on an 81 sunfish. I have the tiller, blade, and mounting bracket, but no head/cheek plate or hardware. If you've got a spare cheek assembly, carriage bolt, springs — or even a complete rudder, I'm in the market!

    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...

    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...
