A man 'o war can kill a human
A sunfish can eat a man 'o war

I'm going with the sunfish.

Being a fan of Chrysler sailboats and knowing that Chryslersailor.com has a great group of dedicated members were you can get any info on a Chrysler sailboat, I have to go with the Man o war.

I had to look up what a man-o-war even looks like (the small sailing dinghy). Sunfish are still numerous here at the shore, As are Force 5s and Hobie cats.. never seen a man-o-war before.

Guess that puts the sunfish cooler in my book

Man-o-War looks kinda tough to single hand:

Go with the Sunfish. Like the Laser, any boat that sells that number has to have something going for it.
Unlike MarioG, my experiences with Chrysler marine products were nothing but horrible:
A friend of mine bought a Man-o-war brand new when we were kids. The boat leaked so much we had to run it aground periodically to drain the hull. Otherwise every time she'd heel a little, the water in the hull would shift and we'd capsize. I had a Chrysler outboard that was suitable only for ballast.
