Re: sunfish keel repair

One thing to check might be whether an old Sunfish might have a gap in the hull to deck joint that could let water in and make the boat too nasty (heavy with water) to sail after a while. Soap and a hair dryer (with hull openings closed except for the one used by the hair dryer) might be useful tools for finding any hull leaks.
