Hello all, I just finished restoring a Hobie 18sx. I showed a fellow SX owner a picture of my boat and he noted that my sail has the number ten on it. His feeling was that it is possible that the number ten indicates that it was the tenth sail of it's type ever made. I am skeptical, what can you see in this picture for clues as to it's age etc.

There are many other pictures of this boat in the following Facebook album,

This forum is awesome, identification of the insignia on your sail came up in January, most likely explains the sail number and the cool pattern.

Yep - special sails made for the Special Olympics World Games in 1995.
