Sunfish Coaming


Well-Known Member
I recently acquired a mid-seventies Sunfish which sat outside under trees for fifteen years. It is my first experience with a Sunfish. The hull is in nice shape, but I am in the process of refinishing it with Interlux epoxy. I would like to remove the coaming which looks like it is held on by pop rivets. Am I correct, and can I just drill them out and replace them after I spray the hull? Also, there are three holes on the coaming that are empty. Two are on the ends and one in the center........what was there? Thanks for the info!
My most-original Sunfish, with bronze rudder parts—identified as a '71—has the following as metal-attachment hardware:
