Help Id my first sailboat project.

Thread starter #5
If I don’t find exact model of boat what weight should I shoot for on the fiberglass hull or how would I find out? And what about the rigging I can’t seem to find a sloop/macaroni rigged “boardboat”.
The exact deminsions are oal 13’ 7” beam is 46”. Mast is 17’ 1” and boom is 8’ 7”. And by the way thanks for all of your efforts in the hunt.

As for weight, this site shows (a heavy) 175 pounds; whereas, a Sunfish is (a one-person) 135:

While Howmar makes decent boats, Sunfish parts are deliverable to your door in days. :cool:

Having left my three beach catamarans behind, I started my "board-boat" sailing with a Porpoise II :oops: "orphan" :(.

Pardon my obvious bias, but the painle$$ $wap to a Sunfish was very worthwhile—and now I have five! :confused:
