Hobie Cat 16
How We Got Into Hobie Cat 16’s and Why We Love Them So Much
I thought I would give a little background. A couple of years ago we purchased our first Hobie Cat. We spent months getting it ready to sail for the summer. It was a ’79 so it had problems with soft spots on the hulls. After re-enforcing them and a new paint job we were off and sailing. We were hooked pretty much the first time we took it out on the water.
Since then, we have bought the boat you see above an ’85. It’s a much better boat, and by that I mean faster, of course! There’s nothing quite like being out on the water, wind in your face, the sounds of the hulls slicing through the water against the fluttering of the sails in the high wind. It’s magic! If you’ve experienced it, you know what I’m talking about, if you haven’t then call us up & we’ll go for a ride!
And for your viewing pleasure: Here’s a video about us fixing up our first Hobie 16.
