new sailboat: Rocket by Fulcrum Speedworks

there is a new “Sunfish” style sailboat on the market, and it looks pretty sweet — the Rocket by Fulcrum Speedworks, built in Bristol, Rhode Island.

the boat hull weight is only 90 pounds, so similar to a Minifish, the smaller and lighter cousin to the Sunfish. there isn’t specifications shown on the Fulcrum Speedworks website, but the sail is the same lateen rig style of the Sunfish and Minifish, and it says it should compete with other 14-foot dinghies (like the Sunfish, the Minifish is a bit shorter). the long open cockpit looks like a great improvement on the Sunfish/Minifish design – a simple change but looks like a much better design.

Each $4600 Rocket is a complete “sailaway package” with
-Fully outfitted hull
-Complete assembled mast and spars
-Sail and all lines and ropes
-daggerboard and rudder
-Launching dolly

    Nice!! I wonder how sturdy it is being so lightweight. I’ll be interested to see some more videos and read some reviews.
    Thanks for the info!
    Love the Sunfish
