I used to own a Super Porpoise. They were made in Dowagiac, Michigan (my spelling may be off) but it was a fun boat to sail, a little heavier than a Sunfish with a true self-bailing cockpit. If you go this website, you can look at this class on their Sunfish clones pages:http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sunfish_sailor/

I think you have register on this site to use it but it's free and they have some good stuff on Sunfish-like boats.

I have an SP and it has been a lot of fun. They are slightly bigger than a standard sunfish so they have more room for a crew.
I am eager to see your pictures. :)

HiI sent some pictures yesterday of the Super Porpoise I had recently come across and needs TLC. Where did the pics. go? I`m about as smart as a bag of hammers at times when it comes to certain computer applications. So If the pics shop ulet me know please. Or I could send them elsewhere. retire_610 m.hyland55@shaw.ca Prince George British Columbia Canada. P.S. she will be forsale when I get her spruced up. I am actually looking for a larger,wider boat to sail with my two Grand-daughters. I do have one in mind. Cheers Mike.

These two images purport to be "Super Porpoise". (See sail's symbol/logo).

(I have a Porpoise II, which is a shorter version of the Porpoise-looking hull in the black and white photo.) I don't know about the hull in the color photo. It doesn't appear to be "Porpoise". :confused:





Another site, which has specs to divulge the proper "board" boat:

I also found that a new sail for the "Super Porpoise" is available from "catsailor" at $345. :eek:

BTW: There is a "manage attachments" area which will take you to "My Pictures". (Your pictures)

Click on the photo you want, and then click "open".
