ZIP

ZIP is a 1953 Alcort Sunfish, built in Waterbury, CT, the 13th Sunfish from the first pre production batch of 20 boats. Alex Bryan and Cortlandt Heyniger (ALCORT) built these boats and gave them to friends and family to see if they would like the cockpit and wider beam. Evidently people did, the Sunfish is still in production today. ZIP came to Florida from Grand Island, NY and was due for a major restoration after fun times at the sailing club. She got a paint strip and special clear epoxy coat, new sail and new rigging. She calls the Emerald Coast of Florida home now and enjoys Pensacola Bay.
