here is an excellent video created by Shoreline Sailboats on Sunfish hull repair. Shoreline Sailboats is an authorized Laser Performance dealer in western New York.
as an aside… it is nice to see Shoreline using the Total Boat product line from Jamestown Distributors. I’ve purchased some of the Total Boat Thixo, but have not used it yet. the Total Boat product line seems like a good alternative to West System products that is perhaps a little easier on the wallet!

I was looking through some of my GoPro video footage from sailing my Sunfish last summer on Lake Erie, and I put together this little clip of me flipping the boat over. I had been sailing a while and came in close to shore so that I could adjust the way my GoPro video camera was mounted back on the end of the lower boom.
in retrospect, I’m not really sure why I didn’t go all the way into the beach to fiddle with the camera – maybe I thought the process would be simpler? either way, it ended up a bit of a mess, and flipped the Sunfish right over when the sail caught the wind just right. thankfully the water wasn’t deep enough for the boat to flip all the way over and “turtle”.
I hope you find some joy in my stupidity!
