"...The only way to make them feel the same, is to make them the same boat, and then there would be no sunfish. Steve
I never tipped it over but also never felt secure while sailing it. When my B-I-L visited (and he is an experienced sailor), he took it out in a moderate-to-heavy wind and capsized it in four minutes! (Captured secretly with HIS video camera -- hee hee ).
For a secure ride, ease of maintenance, handling on land or water, convenience of storage and transport, the Sunfish is super hard to beat.
