Sunfish Bungee Cord Line Holder
Category: Sunfish, deck organizer, sailboat, boat
Problem: Some of the other modifications, have related to adding functionality to the Sunfish rigging, particularly the concept that all lines be brought back to the cockpit. However, if the lines are in the cockpit, they can be tangled and not easily accessible to change the rigging configuration. I wanted them easily accessible, I wanted them out of the cockpit, but yet held in place for easy access.
Action: The Sunfish that I had, had the mainsheet hook at the front of the cockpit cowling. I made a small loop out of a small piece of line and then took two bungee cords, connected one end through the loop and the other end to the outside of the splash rail. To adjust the tension, I tied some knots in the bungee cord to shorten it. When the lines were coiled, they fit under the bungee cords and were held to the deck in place, ready for easy access.
Result: It worked great!
