I am not afraid of storms

my2fish blog’s 8th birthday

holy schnikes, 8 years? do blog years follow the ratio of dog-to-human years?

that would mean the blog is 56 years old.

that’s starting to feel like forever… no offense to my older blog readers, of course.

speaking of forever, that’s about how long it feels since I’ve been sailing.

building a new house, getting settled in it, raising four boys… stuff just keeps getting in the way of taking a day or afternoon off to find a nearby lake for a quick sail.

.

anyway, thanks again to all of you who follow along and pretend to read my posts, and extra special thanks to those of you brave enough to make a comment or two.

I’ve had fun blogging, sailing, and blogging about sailing, and hope to keep doing it for the near future!

cheers,

my2fish

old style Sunfish rudder repair [video]

Shoreline Sailboats just posted a great video showing some of the steps and process of converting an older style Sunfish rudder to the current rudder system.

Small Boat Restoration also has a good blog post “sunfish rudder conversion” about this same upgrade, with a lot of photos of the process as well.

all 1972 and newer Sunfish are equipped with the current “new” style of rudder, so this only applies to those of you who have currently, or are looking to buy, an older Sunfish.  back then, the manufacturer of the Sunfish was AMF, and they released a write-up with the procedure to upgrade the rudder.

spam not, lest ye be spammed

where’s all the mad bloggers at?

(with apologies to Dr Dre)

life is short, boats are cool 


go sailing.
