  1. Hello from New Zealand I previously owneed a hydra and am looking at buying another. This may be well known but I changed as per the following boat which made a huge difference in speed Changed the boom to a carbon fibre one Bought a second hand Taipan jib and cut the top off added 1 horizontal batten and 1 45 degree angle batten to hold the top out, What a Flyer, Although are a heavy boat with a heavy mast thiss is one cat I could not subraine although at thimmes the cross beam was in the water The biggest feature is the ample forward hulls and the great centrboards ( if you need them) I am looking for a Hydra 16 in Sunshine Coast sso email to ron.heydonnz@gmail.com I will post some hydra pics when I can find them Ron Heydon

    Hydra 16

    Hi I had a standard main and purchased a taipan main and cut down to a square top. Huge difference in performance. Added 2extra battens to support the top. Great modification
