A: Not anymore, all of the Sunfish we bring in have the new and modern Fiberglass Rudder and Daggerboard.

Q: What is the best trailer?

A: Two options here: If you have the a Seitech or Dynamic Dolly, you can use the Right On Trailer. https://westcoastsailing.net/right-on-laser-and-sunfish-trailer/.
