Sunfish sailboats:

These things were everywhere ca. 1974/75/76/77. When we'd go to Hardings Beach in Chatham (which, btw, is closed this weekend due to Great White Shark sightings, 4 of them to be exact), there were always at least half a dozen of these things either in the water or on the beach. I wanted to try one, but no one in my family owned a sunfish.

I do remember these sailboats, don't think I was ever on one and I didn't know those sharks came near the coast of New England ...

Yes there's quite a few sharks off the coast of new england. they just usually stay farther out to sea.

I too was totally unaware of sharks hanging out in New England waters!

There was a series of shark attacks in New Jersey in the mid-30's that inspired Peter Benchley for Jaws.
Off the coast of Mauntauk (sp?) is infamous for sharks.
