sunfish cabin cruiser

I saw this South Jersey craigslist ad posted on the Sunfish Forum.

14′ Hand crafted replica of a Cabin Cruiser …..

Great Advertising piece for a Nautical themed business, Seafood Restaurant, Marina, Boat business, Ale House, Bar, Lounge etc.

Parade float ? GIANT scale R/C Radio Controlled Toy ? Garden Art ? Yard Decoration ?

Just needs finishing touches and stain OR paint OR varnish ….

Built on a REAL SUNFISH sailboat hull and made to seat 2 adults in the cabin ….

Limited Only by Your IMAGINATION !!!!!

$750.00 With FREE local delivery

apparently, the old fiberglass hull of a Sunfish wasn’t a good enough design – nothing a little plywood and creativity can’t improve upon.

complete with cute little windows and an operating door.

no more rudder mount.  no engine mount either – I’m not sure how this thing will move across the water.  did he install oar-locks if you wanted to row around the lake in this bad boy?  I don’t see any installed.

luckily it has a roof that pops open for easy access.  this is a serious party boat.

    Before scrolling down, I expected the first comment to be O Docker’s.

    What I want to know is, is the trailer included in the price? This is brilliant.
    It would be great for duck hunting…..pop open the cabin roof and BANG!
    There’s obviously plenty of room down below for a large cooler and lots of
    shotgun shells. Piney heaven.

      must be a Jersey thing.

      I’ve seen other Sunfish turned into duck boats. I just would be afraid this particular model would be a bit tippy. not what I want to stand up in with a couple beers in me while holding a loaded shotgun.

      or maybe that’s the point?

    I don’t duck-hunt much, but when I do, I use a 10 guage. Stay seated my friend.

    That’s one of the finest-looking Sunfish I’ve ever seen. The ad’s spot on – just a dash of varnish and you’re ready to go.

    I’m thinking two Laser masts – one in the bow and one in the cockpit, for a perfectly balanced cat-ketch rig.

    A couple cases of PBR down below should be all the ballast you need.

    A South Jersey thing of elegance and beauty.

    I knew there was a reason I left New Jersey.

    With the center board down just amount 12 to 18″, that would sturdy an outboard motor thrust, if less than 10 horse power (after a simple modification on the stern to accommodate a short shaft unit). There is plenty of room inboard to hook up a steering mechanism, or just cut out a slot for the tiller? You could actually plane it like you are sailing a Sunfish but you would have to be very careful because of it being top heavy!
