A counterfeit is an illegal copy of the original that is usually worth
less. There are at least a dozen boat manufacturers who recognized the
popularity of the Sunfish and produced clones in order to get
a share of the market. Some of these boats are in my opinion superior, but there
are also a few that have faults, incorporate poor quality materials or shoddy
workmanship. Here are some clones that I have owned or still have.
