PHOENIX entered our fleet in 1994 in Corpus Christi, TX. She is a 1982 AMF boat, made the trip to Yuma, AZ with us and sailed Squaw Lake, just off of the Colorado River. She sailed on Lake Grapevine and now enjoys her Florida waters.

Phoenix needed a little TLC, she had a few leaks and we did an air leak test to figure out where the trouble spots are. We found several, the 2 big culprits being in the bailer hole seam and the daggerboard trunk. The funniest was Mt Vesuvius blowing out the rivet hole in the coaming.

We sealed up those areas with Pettit Flexpoxy, and we also put Marine-Tex epoxy putty over several areas where gelcoat had chipped.

We also sanded the coaming in prep for paint and installed the aluminum cockpit trim that our buddy Alan sent us.

1982 AMF Sunfish PHOENIX out for sea trials after repairs to leaks in the daggerboard trunk, bailer hole seam, chine and coaming. She sailed great and Skipper did a few donuts. No leaks!
