sunfish frankenboat: “folk art”

I know I’ve seen this disaster before, but was reminded of it again on the Sunfish Forum.

plywood sides, plexiglass windows, and a little cabin have been scabbed onto the deck of a (fiberglass) Sunfish hull.  it’s not clear if a motor was meant to be added or not, or if the original Sunfish mast and sail would be used? no oar locks visible either – so I’m not sure if this contraption was ever meant to see the water? or perhaps it was just going to be a prop for parades and things like that?

the “boat” is listed for sale on Craigslist at the Jersey Shore.

I’ve posted about this unique boat before – looks like it has a fresh coat of white paint… but only on the plywood.  don’t bother painting the dirty old fiberglass hull to match!

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

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 ….

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.
