Sunfish hull repair method

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!

sailing supplies

I was trying to organize my basement shop, and had my sailing supplies in 3 or 4 different boxes.  I decided to organize them a little better, but before I did that – I laid most of it all out on one of my workbenches.

there is a little bit of everything there: an old rudder head that needs to be cleaned up.  a pair of old tiller straps that have been polished up to look almost like new. a new tiller extension (a Ronstan Battlestick). bailers, old and new.  sail rings, old and new.  inspection ports. new lines – a mainsheet, halyard, outhaul and cunningham.  cleats – cam and clam. two options for Sunfish mainsheet control – a new ratchet block and an old swiveling fairlead and cleat. eyestraps, standup springs, hiking straps.  Interlux varnish, West System epoxy stuff, and the remains of my 2-part expanding foam (use to reset my foam blocks).

anything else I should add to my collection?

 

2014 Sunfish Worlds boat & sail logos unveiled

the Sunfish Worlds will be held this year at Camp Sea Gull Camp Seafarer in North Carolina.  the custom sail and boat design by Laser Performance and the Sunfish Class have been released and look pretty awesome. the ship’s wheel and anchor on opposite sides is a neat touch.

my only complaint? does it have to be blue and yellow?  NOT my favorite color combination.

here is another great video of the 2013 Sunfish Worlds racing at Lewes, Delaware.  those were some crazy conditions! heavy wind, huge waves… made for some challenging racing, I would think.
