Sunfish-ish
 
I am looking at a small lateen rigged boat that looks (to me) just like a sunfish. He said it is a Lightning. Anyone familiar with these? (sorry no pix available)

While there are a number of Sunfish-like boats out there with various names I've never heard of one called a Lightning.
The only Lightning I know of is the 1 class sloop rigged racer: Welcome to the International Lightning Class
Something is a little amiss.

Probably a sailfish.

The Aqua Fin and Howmar Phantom and are two lateen rigged boats that are most similar to the Sunfish. The Phantom has been renamed Pointer 14 by its new manufacturer.
