Browse the VW ad websites and you can find the rest of the story ... year of publication, magazines run in, sometimes quips on how the idea came about and its success..., or failure.Saw this at VW dealership today. Found this copy on eBay. Pretty cool.
Your observations are correct, except the spars aren't extended, they are stock parts..., as is the sail.Ok, second guess. The upper boom apears the same length as the lower boom. The extended length of the two booms support an oversized sail, hence turbo-charged?
Not tied at the most efficient spot, I agree. It's rigged very beach resort style.Halyard is in the wrong location on the upper boom?
True, what gave it away, the sail emblem?It's not a Sunfish.
This boat appears to be conventionally setup, though the halyard is just piled up in a rat's nest at the cleat. Probably the Wolfsberg sailing club's hasty setup....is the sail rigged on the wrong side of the mast?
Looks correctly installed to me.Is the bow handle backwards?
Unterfish ? nicht gutIt's the German SF clone, the U-boat!
A lot of thought, but as I said earlier, the spars and sail are normal Sailfish parts.I think this is the right term, the leech of the sail is to long? For it to have the upper spar that high the lower boom should be angled up at about 40 deg.
I think it is possible this Sailfish has had a nose job and is shorter than a normal Sailfish. Or alternatively it is a standard Sailfish with the rig of a Super Sailfish. Standard Sailfish were shorter with a four panel sail. BB
