Re: Too big for a sunfish?
Sunfish is a great little boat.
Before you bite on a bare hull price out the rudder, tiller, daggerboard, sail, sail rings, mast, booms, gooseneck. Then price out a second used Sunfish WITH all its parts ($650). I almost guarantee the latter will be well much less.
I went from a Sunfish to a Gloucester 11. Needs a trailer but it sails much better and is all the world more comfortable. (I'm 6'3" and 200 lbs.)
