I am currently in the process of for a used Hobie 16 that I can use to sail and possibly race (Probably not). I have found this one that the seller says has all the rigging and he sailed it earlier this season. He doesn't know too much about Hobie cats so I am wondering if this is a good deal or not.
Also I will just mention my total budget for getting a sailing ready boat is $1,500.
The seller claims the following:
- He has 2 sets of sails
- I have pictures of one of the sets
- All rigging is in place and ready to be used
- May or may not have trapeze wires
- No rips or tears in the sails
You can see some pictures on the craigslist ad: http://delaware.craigslist.org/boa/4673081725.html

I know to look for soft spots and to thoroughly examine the boat when looking at it.
So is this a good deal? Should I meet the person to see the boat? And lastly what should I pay for this boat?
