Actually SplashTX, I'm feeling kinda responsible for your situation. It was I that quoted the dimensions you cut your spinnaker down to. Got them from a sailmaker and not Hobie.
No worries, I researched everywhere before pulling the trigger to have this size made. It was most unfortunate that Hobie couldn't come through and share the size for those of us in the USA that wanted to try a local built spinnaker on our Hobie 16's. These things aren't class legal in any of our races here.
It was a lot cheaper buying this than the Hobie built one from Europe. And because Kelly Hanson had some production issues they discounted it 50% off for me too.
I'm sure when I'm done with it it will make a great spinnaker for someones Hobie 14.
If anyone is out there with an actual Hobie 16 Spinnaker, please measure it and share the sizes including mid girth.
I'm thinking the new size would need to be closer to: Luff 23.5', Foot 10', Leech 20.5', a bit bigger than the one I ordered Luff 19.5', Foot 8.75', Leech 17.25'
