Weight of boat

L&VW is correct. A very heavy Sunfish is easier to capsize than a light one. Also, trying to move a waterlogged Sunfish around on shore is a pain. Sunfish used to weigh about 130 - 40 new and now weigh just under 130 lbs. new. Unless you are racing, any boat under 145 lbs.is usually fine for day sailing and general cruising.
