  2. SOLD!!! Maricat 4.3 metre, off the beach, racing , fun sailing catamaran. Complete with Registered trailer, in excellent condition. Also has brand new (only used a few times), Cat Hauler, catamaran rollers which cost $650. Has a lot of new gear fitted to it, including, racing design downhaul and outhaul systems. New mainsheet. New rudder steering set up, which has taken all slop out of the the rudders, making the rudders, having very positive and effective steering. The trampoline, has been strenghthened, and is in great condition. The hulls have also been strengthened, so the boat can be pushed to the limits and not break up. This is done by reinforcing the side stay chainplate fastening points, and fittings stronger chainplates. There is also a boat cover, that had been custom made from heavy duty taughtliner truck tarp material, with re-inforced binding around all of the edges. (this cost over $600 for just the materials to make). The boat comes with the orange and yellow striped main sail and matching jib, with roller furler for jib, at the asking price. The sails are in great condition, and hold a good shape. Please note, I have only sailed the boat as a cat rigged (main sail only) hence why photos do not show it as sloop rigged. I have all of the deck hardware and jib sheets, and jib halyard to fit, and sail as sloop rigged. For an extra $1100, I am prepared to sell my racing sails. These are Lilac and White in colour. They are made by Redhead sails, and are radial cut. They are made of ripstop dacron sailcloth. These sails have had only a small amount of use. They are in excellent shape and condition. With these sails fitted to the boat, it makes maricats, extremely fast. The mast is raked back further with these sails fitted, and it makes the boat fast upwind and very fast on a reach. I am also prepared to sell these sails off separately to anyone that would like to purchase these. I have a genuine reason for selling the catamaran. As I had a knee injury back in January. After having a knee operation in April, and then physio since the operation, I have found that I am unable to hike out (with straightened legs) on the catamaran with my knee not allowing me to do so. I therefore need to sell my boat, and to revert back to sailing and racing a dinghy (hiking out with slightly bent legs). I am willing to consider a direct swap on a dinghy of equivalent market value. It must be fibreglass, no plywood or timber boats. They must have a trailer and a launching trolley. Tell me what you have. Interests, in 420, 470, ns14, tasar. I am prepared to negotiate on price. The boat is available for viewing at Yorktown, just 8kms north of Beaconsfield, in the West Tamar Valley. (50kms north of Launceston). 74kms East of Devonport. MORE PHOTOS, SEE THE LISTING UNDER SAME TOPIC HEADING IN BOATS AND ITEMS FOR SALE CATEGORY. PHONE 0490 026 843 Thanks for looking, cheers David.

    H16

    HI guys, I have acquired a second hobie 16 locally! It is in pretty good condition and I would love to get it going again. I am missing a few parts so thought I would ask around - The boat needs 1 left rudder blade 1 left rudder casting upper and lower. tiller Main sail. Are there any interchangable parts with other cats (Mari/ windy/ caper) or h14/17/18 or would all parts have to come from a H16.. Other option is to sell what I've got left over, H16 trailer (GC) H16 hull (GC) H16 right rudder/ casting upper and lower, cam H16 boom H16 mast H16 jib Just thought I'd put the feelers out to see if I could either source the parts to get it going? or if anyone was interested in taking on the project, or interested in any of the parts?. that and my wife would probably kill me if I came home with another H16 for parts!!! Thanks Matt

  9. I posted a few questions on Seabreeze but someone suggested I should post the questions here. This is just a cut and paste from Seabreeze, but I would appreciate any help I can get. I just bought a Hobie 14 which I think is a Turbo from looking on the Internet. It has a furling jib. I plan to rig and sail it on my own. I have a number of issues I could use some help with. When I first went to put up the mast, I thought a pin went through the mast end fitting and the mast step. There was no pin with the boat so I bought one. When I raised the mast, the pin broke the mast end fitting (see image). Looking at the step, it appears it has also been broken in the past as the holes have an opening as though a pin has pulled through the fitting. After much searching on the Internet, I found a mast step kit which is probably what I should have used. I could use some guidance as to how you raise the mast without the pin??? and should I be using a mast step kit. Also where can I buy Hobie bits around Sydney. The next question is about the jib. Looking at an online store they have a turbo kit with two pulleys on the clew. (http://www.hobiecat.com.au/pdf/sailing/e_turbojib.pdf) I just have a single jib sheet tied to the jib clew in the middle of the sheet. Can someone throw some light on jib sheeting? On the kit, there is also a wire strop from the top of the jib to the mast. On my boat, there is no strop but a pulley on the mast. It looks like it is designed to use a rope halyard. Is this normal, or recommended? Finally, for now, there is no boom vang. Is this recommended for fun sailing as opposed to racing? Help would be appreciated.
