Hi, I need some help. My sunfish is sitting in the garage of my shore house and every year it floods. It was on a dolly but that rusted away. We are trying to move it to my home in Medford. We don't have a trailer nor a hitch. Also the thing in the hull that you unscrew to let the water out has corroded over time. How can I fix that so we can sail again? Does anyone live in NJ that can help bring the sailboat home? Does anyone know of an inexpensive trailer?

Thanks for your help,
Victoria ~2293

Medford, MA? How big is your vehicle? I car-top my sunfish on my 2005 Subaru Outback, which is not a very big vehicle. That might be a doable option as long as you don't mind driving a little slower and checking the top of your car every once in a while.

I'd be careful about how much the hull weighs before car topping it.
If it's waterlogged it could easily exceed what is safe, especially with
a high center of gravity vehicle. If you are in a hurry probably best
to drill a hole in the transom and install a drain plug later.
