Sailfish

I need to rebuild my sailfish and i was wondering if anyone out there has ever attempted this feat. I need to replace all the foam on the inside and was wondering if the hull will pull away from the deck very easily or if i should not even bother. If anyone has any advice to offer out there let me know!

CalebD will become famous soon enough
There is a ton of information on Sunfish over at Yahoo Groups in the Sunfish_Sailor group about what you will want to do. Join yahoo by getting an ID and then join that group and look in their files section as it has most of the info you are probably looking for. Over 2000 members there.
It is not so much that the folks here won't help you but they have more model/brand specific info you will want.
Good luck.

Looking at my hull, it looks like if you peel off the rub rail, it will just come apart. I can try it on mine if you want, as it's just sitting back there waiting for big garbage day. I was going to take it apart, and cut the hull halves in half. It will have to wait until the USA vs. Netherlands soccer game is over though, (USA up 2-1!!!! WOOOO!!!)
