A “CHEAPSCOOTER” ?

Since Cheapskate sailors are not showing any interest in converting to soft water sailing in my unused Sunfish hull I wonder if the hull can be put to better use.

I have vivid memory of my only ride on a Long Island Scooter, one long laugh. The Sunfish hull is very similar to a scooter hull, just smaller. Al it needs is angle iron runners screwed, or even pop riveted to the bottom, two or three each side. Steering would be by weight shifting and sheeting. No messing around with pesky shrouds or runners, easy crossing of wide pressure ridges. There might be an amusing learning curve.

Comments from scooter skippers appreciated.
