Sunfish Sailboat Hull, Spars and Line Specifications

Here is a list of Sunfish Specifications, provided by Sunfishsailboats.com aka Yankee Boating Center. They have great a great parts and service department, even live people to talk to on the phone. I have bought several class legal sails, line kits and other Sunfish parts from them. One neat thing they will do when you buy a line kit is pick out line colors that will compliment your boat's color.

  1. Dear All
    I recently bought a Navigator II 400 inflatable boat. I want to build myself a sunfish sail rigging type.
    I need some information such as:
    - the most appropriate length and diameter of the Aluminium mast.
    - the most appropriate length and diameter of poles (spars).
    - the sail shape and dimensions
    - angle between the 2 spars
    A plan will be wonderful if any.
