Re: learned long ago on a Sunfish... bought a vintage Sidewinder

Just bought a Sidewinder two mouths ago been out about 4 times. 5 to 10 kns I had never heard of them..
Was looking for a laser but I'm a bit big for a laser so this was a great choose. fun to sail and quick. Mine has a one piece mast and is a bit cobbled together... it has a Hobbie boom and the roller furling is made up of plumbing pipe...don't know what it would have had .
Any literature would be interesting also photos of you rig. the set up was really easy for one person. a very simple love the roller furling hook. had a hobbie 14 and there was no way I was getting that mast up solo.
