Have have also recently Purchased a Kolbri Sailboat. I have spoken to Gord at Glenmore he has been very helpful. I would not mind exchanging some picture. I am questioning if the rudder on mine is original. In addition the keel was broke in half I am busy trying to repair it.
I'm looking for parts to make new rudder - need a cheek assembly and the tiller straps. Do you have any?

Are you absolutely set on buying a Sunfish sailboat? Chinese boats have major quality problems. Did you ever consider Europe dinghy? If one day you are in San Diego CA, please let me know and I will set up a boat for you. I race in the Sunfish Club and you can read about it here: Home - Sunfish San Diego Club
Take care,

Another member on the forum suggested reaching out to you as perhaps you can help me out:

In recently acquiring my 1981 Sunfish, I realized the rudder does not have the tension springs attached.

1. Do you have an extra set you are willing to sell & ship to me to NJ?
2. Can I substitute the Sunfish parts for tension springs purchased elsewhere?
3. If so, what is the length & diameter of the springs?

Thank you!
I have a Alcort Flying Fish. Recently acquired the correct centerboard. Can anyone provide information as to what may have been used to replace the two strips of material screwed to the bottom of the hull where the centerboard would be lowered into the water. The original strips (left and right) were of a semis rigid plastic. Assume the strips add friction to board and hold back water.
You should post this in the Sunfish Talk section of the Sunfish Forum
I can't ship this. If you can make if to Merritt Island, FL you are welcome to pick it up. Price: $150
Thanks for quick reply! Only part I need is the mast base plug (that holds mast secure). Are you willing to sell that for less? Understand if not. Thanks again.

Hi Tim, Are these sails still available? I'm interested in the genoa. The shipping would be to New Brunswick,so not complicated by customs.
Re: your sail up for sale. I might do $600 - Are you coming to Marsh Creek for the 40th Anniversary Philadelphia regatta this Saturday? Thanks
If you need only the 4 (2 pairs) they are $3 which includes postage. Let me know what your address is and I will mail out. You can Venmo the money or send a check.
So you're in Dowagiac, Mi., right by the casino? Where do you plan on sailing Capri? I took mine out on Lake Michigan once and it was a humbling experiance! Nothing like the days when I did lots of open water cruising on my Catalina 22! And email your # to me @, it got lost in the shuffle
Hi, Want to put a Baby Bob on my Capri. Your photos are helpful. Did you make the attachment transition yourself?
I’m looking for a large manual (the 20 page one I have is not specific enough for a beginner) for my 1996 Capri 14.2. Trying to figure out what will be needed in the way of fittings/hardware and how to get it rigged and sailing! Right now the mast is hanging under the patio roof, rudder is in living room, sails safely tucked away in laundry room, boat down at the dock, trailer with flat tires parked. It’s a puzzle!
