Sailing Texas/Sunfish et al.

David Lukenbach has a website called Sailing Texas. It's one I visit often, at least twice a week, mostly to look at the boats for sale. Don't let the name fool you, it's scope is far wider than Texas. This is a very rich website with lots of resources for sailors anywhere. Indulging a recent interest in Sunfish, Sailfish etcetera (I found an early sailfish lurking in the garage of a friend), I found these pictures,taken by David, of a vintage Sunfish, refinished and varnished to show the woods rich character and obviously meticulously restored, on the Sailing Texas website arhcive of boat photo's, a valuable resource. It's great for researching production boats, the site also has how to's, among other things and the sailboat listings are some of the best around. Visit. Often.
