I am in the market for a 16(upgrading from my turbo) and was wondering if a 16 would fit on the trailor that I use for my 14.

Does anybody have any experience with this? Are there beams vastly different?

Thanks,
Pete

The specs for the Hobie 14 here is the beam is 7'8 feet wide,

http://www.hcana.hobieclass.com/?Page=2168

Where as the 16 is 7'11, My custom built 16 trailer has a bit more width then the boat, so in my case it would work, however I am not sure about your sitation. How much extra room do you have, if any?

Also the 16 being almost 3 feet longer (as the lenght is actually 16'7, you would need to make sure you have the extra tounge length. Would hate to turn a corner and drive the bow into the back of your tow vehicle.

Hope this helps.

Should work fine. The 16 only has 3" more beam. Most trailers have adjustments for the side bars...loosen the jam bolt and move each one out 1-1/2". What are you going to do with the 14?

Hi,
Thanks for the replies guys!

I am almost positive that the trailor has adjustable sidses.. so i am gonna try to move them one peg out, to fit the 16.

As for the 14, i was planning on selling it.
Its a turbo, and has treated me very very well. I love the boat, but i would like to be able to get my father and i out on the same rig, and the 14 is to tight for the both of us.

I would like it to go to a good hobie person, not someone who is gonna trash it.. one of the hiking straps has come off the tramp, but other than that, the boat is in good condition.

hey petercip

Im from wilmington MA You said your 14 is a turbo. How much do you want for the entire boat? Would you be willing to sell the jib by itself?

I would like to get 500 for it.. she sails well, and the rudders have been recently replaced, and the hulls are solid.

I think it would be wrong to part-out a perfectly good boat.
