Right on Plumper. I was about 11 I think when I went out on a small lake in a Sunflower which was a styrofoam contraption making a Sunfish look like a Club Swan 42. Those 2 hours more than 35 years ago did it for me.

Her's a link to a picture of a Sunflower... I can't believe they are still made!

OMG. There it is! I too learned on the Sunflower. Boy Scouts, Camp Kit Carson. Sailed one of those all over whatever lake that was in the Sierra Nevada some 35+ yrs ago.
