It may or may not make life easier for you... but a lot of SX boats have been converted to SE boats, more sails and rigging are available, and it may be cheaper to go that route than to rebuild back to SX glory.
You can cut down the mast if you're careful and get things where they need to go... and then just hook up the more common SE equipment to it. It's a bit more work than that of course... but it may be an easier road to go down.
I believe SE booms are the same either way though.
I've got a project on my hands: to rebuild two hobie 18SX's!
The good news: the hulls, masts, rudders, trampoline frame and trailers are in usable condition. There is one pair of daggerboards.
The bad news: I have basically nothing else.
The trampolines are still on, but are definitely rotten. At least I can use them as patterns to get new ones made.
But I have to source everything else.
So! anyone got any 18SX gear that they don't need anymore? Anyone know of anyone who does?
Right now I'm starting the project with a search for sails. Hoping to find some used ones. Well that goes for all the parts: I'm hoping to find used gear.
So again, hello to everyone, It's nice to be here! And I look forward to getting to know you all as I start my rebuilds here.
