Re: Too big for a sunfish?

If you can find a Phantom, that would be a good alternative. The cockpit cutout is larger and molded into the top, so it does not have the sharp metal edges like a Sunfish. You can plop your butt into the cockpit with your body transverse (legs hanging over the side) and be much more comfortable than in a Sunfish.

I got mine for $700 in sail-away condition with all rigging and trailer. So it's well within your budget if you can find one.
