Re: Too big for a sunfish?

Back in the day before I was able to drive I saved my pennies and bought a Super Sunfish rig. It was similar to a laser rig with Cunningham, outhaul, halyard.....
Unfortunately it was a dog compared to the lateen rig. So I cut a jib out of an old sail and rigged it up. Now it was as fast as a traditional sunfish.

Sunfish just fine

Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.
