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.
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

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?
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.
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 @ email@example.com, it got lost in the shuffle
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!
