Sunfish are great fun. My question is, no matter what you fasten the top of the jib to, how the heck would you get the bottom of the jib around the point of the lateen when throwing a tack? First I was thinking you could get a longer mast post at any hardware store, that way you could do all kinds of interesting things, like lifting the boom a little higher, and having a point to hook the jib to, but again, it would be interesting to try and figure out how to move around the point of the mainsail without getting all kinds of caught up. Unless of course you stay on the same POS the whole time. Good luck, I would love to hear about what you do with it.
