    You could use these automatically inflatable ones: http://www.rakuten.de/produkt/secumar-kenterschutzkissen-secumar-ksk-20-und-ksk-40-selbstaufblasend-546898625.html

    What type of trapeze line/wire?

    On my Hobie FxOne, the standard trapeze wire is a 4mm Spectra rope, which can be spliced relatively easily. You could eventually buy a Hobie trapeze and then adjust the lenght yourself.
  4. Ahh yes, I read about that somewhere. Thank You
  5. lifejacket, Gps, VHF, epirb is my standard equipment anyway but what is a V sheet? Is it paper or rope ;-) ?
  6. I want to do a long catamaran trek up the Australian East coast and need to know if there are any legal constraints doing so.

    Maybe you could use something like this, made for FxOne http://www.fx-one.de/index.php?id=40 [ATTACH=CONFIG]749[/ATTACH]

    This is the origin of spam ;-)
  9. This stuff is made for exactly that. After I used it, my sail comes down by it self. Its a dry lube, so sand and dirt will not stick to it. http://www.harken.com/McLube/McLube.php [ATTACH=CONFIG]640[/ATTACH]

    Aroung Cape Horn in a Nacra F20

    Somewhere in the text it said F20 and also in the sail it says Nacra but there is a mixture of pictures. When they crossed the Mediterranean they used a Hobie but the curved daggerboards are unique for the Nacra I believe

  13. I DID find the guy but he has no report of the trip although he was willing to answer questions
  14. Hello I see a lot of talk about Hobie 14s in Australia and wonder if they are bought/sailed by adults or bought for their children. Here in Denmark there are almost no Hobie 14s, adults are sailing minimum 16s, I have a FxOne which is 17 and a one person boat but can be used by two. I'm interested because I'm thinking of, at some time, buying a cat and make a long trip somewhere along the Australian coast (or in the Tuamotus in Polynesia :-))
