No I don't have both, in fact, neither. I have a Sunfish hull and am working on getting the mast & spars for it. I,ve been offered a Minifish with the sails and spars missing. My thought was that I could use a Sunfish rig on the Minifish as those are still available new and are much more common used.
I was not thinking of putting the sloop rig from a "Super Sunfish" on a "Minifish", but rather a standard Sunfish lateen rig on a Minifish. (I am, of course, assuming that the Minifish uses a scaled down lateen rig similar to, but smaller than a Sunfish, but I have not been able to confirm that is in fact true. ) I'm sure if you sloop rigged a Mini with the SuperSunfish mast & sails it would fly, but you might have difficulty keeping it upright.
Wayne, I think I need some directions navigating the site you sugested. I tried the link and registered there. I was not able to find the information I'm seeking about a Minifish. They did have "SuperSunfish" diagrams, etc. but I found no specific info on the Minifish. Further directions or sugestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Here you go...
Spars 12ft 3in
The sail should end about 4 inches from the end of the spars.
The spar material is exactly the same as the Sunfish so if you can get a hold of a set of regular spars you can just pop out an end cap and cut them to size. If you want to put the full Sunfish rig on your minifish I think it would require moving the block on the boom so they are over the cockpit and the traveller. As for the rudder and centerboard, the rudder is the same but uses a shorter tiller. The centerboard is enough the same that the Sunfish one works fine.
A previous post says a Sunfish daggerboard will work fine for a Minifish. While this may be true some of the time, it is not true all of the time. When the winds pick up you'll find you'll have much difficulty, if not imposible to make the Mini come about. The solution is to raise the board substantially, which proves the Mini was meant to have a shorter board. I too, am trying to determine its optium length.
I am thinking about fabricating a set of mast/booms for a Minifish and need to know the thickness of the tubing, diamater, and grade of aluminum (if anyone knows this)... I plan on ordering the fittings but figure it would be cheaper to buy the tubing locally (MD, DE).
