SNARK

The Super Sea Snark monohull sailboat comes complete with nylon sail, daggerboard, kick up rudder and tiller, riggings and fittings. Mast, spar and boom are aluminum. Wooden parts are marine varnished (available as upgrades in plastic). The open cockpit design (like a canoe) gives you plenty of legroom. Just add water and go. Snark's are unsinkable, the internal hull being completely filled with EPS foam leaving no voids. The external hull and deck are formed out of rugged ABS polymer, which is vacuum formed over the core to give an extremely durable hull. And, all Snark models are car toppable at just 50 lbs all up weight (fully rigged boat).

RIGGING INSTRUCTIONS

Run one line thru mast cap (22) and pass thru eye strap (18) then tie around spar at "C", haul sail up and tie off at cleat (21). Take other line, tie one end to eye strap on tiller handle (4), pass other end thru  ring (19) at "A" then thru next  ring at "B", tie figure eight knot in end to prevent slipping back through the ring. Hold knotted end of line in hand to control sail.

SNARK TIPS FOR REPAIRS AND REPLACING PARTS

REPAIRING YOUR HULL - Two part epoxy cement can be used to keep your rub rail for coming off or repair that little hole you received on shore. Large areas of damage will requires a fiberglass repair. Fiberglass comes in bulk or as a kit. Both epoxy fillers used on autos or general epoxy cement works.

Remember to NOT USE Petroleum based products or related to Fiberglass on your hull using Polyester resins is not a good idea as they tend to melt the hull material.

Painting your ABS hull is done best with enamel paints but just to be safe with the paint you purchased do a test spot to see how it sticks. Several coats will be needed versus doing one heavy coat. Paint tends to dissolve foam so keep the paint on the ABS plastic only. All foam Super Sea Snark hulls must not be painted but can be lightly sanded to get a cleaner look. Fiberglass-ing the entire hull is a bit over kill and so it is best just to buy a new complete hull from us as the amount of fiberglass you will have to use to cover the entire hull will be very costly.

These products can be purchased at Home Depot, and other like stores.

PARTS THAT ARE LOOSE can reduce the performance of your boat and potential cause an item to pull out while sailing.

Apply epoxy cement to loose parts by coating the threads and re-insert them.

Loose Rudders or Mast you can use electrical tape around the area that is most loose at point of contact like at the top of the rudder blade. With the masts you can also drill a hole in the mast sleeve and mast under the Mast Seat/Cross Member Assembly. This also helps the mast keep from sliding out during a capsize.

GET BACK ON THE WATER QUICK TIPS

Purchasing new parts for old boats - All new Sea/Supper Snarks & Sunflowers use a plastic gudgeon and rudder head. If your boat does not use plastic then you will need to replace your old parts with these new plastic parts.

SAIL REPAIR - Ripped sails can be fix via sail tape available from us ( email us at superseasnark@gmail.com ). Depending on the age of your sail a piece of nylon fabric can be used to repair a tear but remember with old sails putting in new stitching (small holes in the old fabric) can actually reduce the strength of the old material potentially causing more ripping. If you need a new sail we recommend purchasing our upgrade sail that is made of more durable material than manufacture supplied sail that first came with the boat.

To clean your sail use soap such a Simple Green and remember to not use too much soap as it will take awhile to get the soap out of the material. Lay your sail out and hand wash it or put it in your bath tub and scrub while it is immersed in water. Never never put a sail in a washing machine.

Mast Top Cap - if you loose the mast cap and do not have time to get a new one simply drill a hope at the top of the mast and insert an eye bolt. You can run the halyard (line that pulls up the sail) through the eye bolt.

RIGGING LINE - 3/16 Nylon Line/Rope

REPLACING THE SPARS (Mast, Boom, Spar) - Shipping a spar long distance can be costly due to their length so we recommend purchasing this item locally if at all possible. If you can not find a spar we would be glad to ship you one.

Mast Replacement
Super/Sea Snark - 84" long x 1-1/8" Diameter
Sunflower - 99" long x 1-1/8" Diameter
EMT Thin wall conduit works well for the mast.
Install eyebolt at mast top for halyard line.
Tap can be used to make the mast fit snuggly in the mast sleeve and/or install a mast base bolt.

Boom Replacement
Super/Sea Snark - 120" long x 3/4" Diameter
Sunflower - 120" long x 7/8" Diameter
1/2 EMT Thin wall conduit works well for the boom (outside diameter is actually more like 5/8"). Comes in 10' length.
To drill hardware holes use the old boom or sail as a pattern for where to drill the new holes.
Upper Spar/Upper Boom Replacement
Sea/Super Snark - 120" long x 3/4" Diameter
Sunflower - 148" long x 7/8" Diameter
1/2 EMT Thin wall conduit works well for the boom (outside diameter is actually more like 5/8"). Comes in 10' length.
Sunflower - Since the sunflower spar is a little longer use a 30" piece of 3/4" EMT electrical conduit tubing and fit it over the the 1/2" conduit and bolt it in place to make an extension so the spar is a total length of 148"
To drill hardware holes use the old spar or sail as a pattern for where to drill the new holes.

DAGGERBOARD
1/2 Plywood at 8-12" wide x 30" Long X 1/2" Thick. Cut 2" wide cap and glue to rudder top via wood glue (gorilla glue works well).
