The boat would be used by my teen age daughter to sail in local races.
How strict are they on having official ICLA sail, tiller and centerboard?
Maybe I buy the knock offs, and see if she wins and then shell out for the legal. I would be open to used if class legal and in good shape. Which pieces would you recommend I consider ? where would I get them.
Hi, As noted I just got a 1995 Laser, just the boat and blocks, need all the lines, sail, tiller, centerboard, tiller bracket.
I am near Los Angeles, I am trying to decided to buy after market "not class legal" or pay a lot more money for the class legal.
The sail is $150 vs $650. center board and tiller also seem to be at least double price.
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.
