Talking about your sunfish when you were a kid brings back memories. I spent two summers on lake Winona in Madison, WI trying to learn how to master my sun fish, I must have been a pretty bad sailer, as I couldn't sail upwind in much over 15 mph wind, and I was in the water almost as much as on, still had fun though. Frustrated I ended up selling it and got into racing hydroplanes, and didn't think much about sailing again until moving to Florida 30 yrs later. So we totally missed the cat craze. Where we lived it was a two hr drive to any decent body of water (Mississippi , where my parents kept their cabin cruiser). I don't recall ever seeing a cat type boat until much later in life ( the consequences of living in the corn belt I guess). I also remember my friends and I going into corn fields and stealing giant foot long corn and eating, not knowing until much later in life that there are two different kinds of corn, one edible, and the other is not ( true story.....who knew lol,,,,, life in the corn belt). A totally different life from south Florida and the keys.
