    Hobie 16 mast huge failure

    I recently purchased a 1987 Hobie 16. In the process of raising the mast, as soon as it clicked into the foot a huge cracking Noise followed as the foot of the mast failed causing the whole thing to topple over nearly killing everyone evolved and the Cadillac Escalade it was hitched to. Does anyone know how I might reattach this piece.

    How Much to sell fair condition laser hull for

    Thank you for the offer, I would love to. However, I live in Upstate Ny and can’t travel far next weekend. If I could go I would be thrilled.
  3. I have just purchased a slightly beat up laser Hull without rig, centerboard and rudder. How much is reasonable to ask for it when I am ready to sell.

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    I just re read that reply and realized that I worded it as though I was uninterested in the boat. How much would be considered reasonable?

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    Because it is, in normal use terms, more durable than fiberglass, also, the interior of the JY is made from fiberglass

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    Also, I live in the Hudson Valley, NY so unless it is reasonably close I can’t pick it up

    Laser 2 vs JY15 Turbo Rig

    I don’t know what prices they go for, the reason why I said I wasn’t in the best position right now to purchase is because I can’t offer all that much

    Racing/family dinghy

    If you think you would like a 29er, just get a 49er while your at it, novices will always learn, used 49ers can run as low as 4K or lower depending on condition

    Racing/family dinghy

    If someone wanted, they could put cushions in the 14 on the seats, as for the 15, comfort is not intended, fun, simplicity and speed are (relatively when it comes to speed)
