    Tracking down Hobie 33's

    Attention owners, crew, anyone at all. I would like to get a gauge on who had/has what Hobie 33, with the intent of starting a hull directory. If you owned, sailed on, or sailed against a Hobie 33, could you share the boats information? A hull directory would let sailors track boats they have sailed on or find boats local to them. Specifically looking for-Hull Number, Serial Number, Boat Name, Sail Number, City, State, Country, and Yacht Club. Thanks!

    Totally lost...

    Hobie 33, yes yes yes i know its over 31 but its not as large as it feels. Can be trailer sailed and travel on the trailer anywhere. Fits a shoe string budget, ramp launch capable. Keel can retract and the mast can be raised and lowered easily as its a deck step. Boat is a wicked fast beer can as well as cruise friendly. No headroom is the downside. One in OKC for $9k. 31 ft or less (No, but close, feels smaller then 33) Budget: $15,000ish (+/-) (Yes) Location: WLIS (Hobie 33 will go there) Lively/fun sailor (able to beercan) (Yes, Like a dream) Solid, able to handle some light coastal ocean work (Yes, Like a dream) Simple systems & not a huge project (Yes) Some wishes: like the 80's model looks better than 70's, (1980s) would prefer more cockpit space than space below, (Big Yes) toilet not porta, (No) would prefer lighter displacement over heavy. (yes, is a ULDB) 8/10 My teacher said that is a good grade

    Myasasaur is a great boat, can not blame you for missing it. We repainted the mast and boom and bought a reaching strut for it. We are in the process of repainting the interior as well, it looks amazing down below. Added a new radio, speakers, vhf, cabin lights, wireless instruments, new mast lights, replaced all the noodles as well. Took the outboard out for full servicing, and replaced the lifelines. Boat is going north and having high bunks fabricated so the boat can be single point lifted. Side note, who sprayed the Vc PE on the bottom?

    Jesus, wire luffs? What size boat would that be on? What kind of speeds did you hit in that kind of wind?

    While we are on the subject on what sails are what. The Hot Yellow S2 kite, is that a PHRF or OD kite? Is there any difference in size between the two mains?

    I'm always down for a full send! I honestly was not sure if the boat needs a spinnaker like such since they get up and go so fast.

    Good point, the boat came with a 1.5 oz reaching kite that i have only had out of the bag once. Laid it out with the normal S2 and it really is not much smaller, just way heavier cloth.
