should I upgrade?

Thread starter #1
Got a line on a newer Sunfish--not sure of the year but it's got the new rudder style. Sail looks a bit rough, and Hull dirty. But comes with a trailer and asking $500. I've finally got everything straight with my current rig, but if I swap over the sail I'll have a newer boat in nice shape. Could probably sell my hull, older sail, old rudder and trailer for close to (maybe more in the spring) $500...

"Flipping" boats is one way to upgrade. I put some cash in my 69 fish (which already had the newer rudder) towards a new tiller/extension, daggerboard, sail and lines, and it's a truly great boat. A little bit of previously owned hardware too. The upgrades were my only cost as I got the boat free. Oh...some nice graphics also :)

Careful! :eek: That "plus" side cuts both ways. :oops:

On the "plus" side, I've gained one new modern rudder, one excellent mahogany rudder, two North sails, two excellent composite tillers, a bunch of decent boards, one HD mast—but now have five hulls! :confused:

:cool: But did make $500 on one older complete Sunfish, and now am waiting for the new sailing season—to put three complete Sunfish on the market—after some epoxy and paint work. :rolleyes:

"Flipping" is addictive, but there are some weekends it's too windy for sailing... ;)
