Rivet Nut Setter

The rivet nut setter is used to compress rivets inside a hole. The nut is threaded and takes a machine screw, which is what was used to hold the splashguards in place on early fiberglass Sunfish.

Sunfish Race Rigging

Took some picture of a race rigged Sunfish, it had adjustments for outhaul and a cunningham. Sails are tied on. Sheet hangers. Wind vane. And it has a racing sail.

Sunfish Trailer and Dolly Extravaganza

Sunfish International Masters is in town, so we drove over to check it out. While the Fleet was out racing I wandered around the Yacht Club getting some ideas for trailers and dollies. Seitech was by far the favored dolly. On the other hand, no two trailers were alike.

One courageous cartopper, from New York!

I like the Right On trailer, dolly fits right on top.

This trailer wss my favorite, a basic utility trailer with a rack added. It could be used for many other things with the rack off.

Counted 45 dollies, lots of Seitechs but there were a few surprises.
