My spinnaker is a Elvstrom/Stobstead run from a 12'6" end pole snuffer. Red & white color. It's cut a little fuller but I am still working on the block placement for the correct shape.
Wing struts, I was thinking about making covers. If I get something that works I'll take pictures. The studs sticking out of the track don't seem to be a problem with me. As my boat sits on a beach for a week at a time I use bolts instead of quick pins.
PS: I'm thinking of selling the 18 , two paddleboats and two small sailboats & canoe to go in with two other guys on a 26' monohull
that they race & manufacture locally. Need to work out the details yet, including a stupidy clause. I tried living without a Hobie and it was one of the worst years of my life, the other being the big D.
