Re: Too big for a sunfish?

I have had a Sunfish in my garage for the last decade. It goes on the roof of our minivan a couple times a year. I've had over 500 lbs in it and it did just fine. The darn thing has sailed in the Hudson river, Newport RI, Lake George. Had it out in 15 knots one time coming back in. That was interesting. They are amazing and fun to sail. I will never sell mine.

I'm a big fat middle aged guy. The boom is low and the foot well is small but I manage. After an hour on the Sunfish I want to come in. Not very comfy and you can't bring anything. But man- is it fun!
