Hello,

I am also looking at the spin kit from Hobie for the 16 and had a few questions. I am an experienced H16 sailor, but new to spin sailing.

1. Comptip vs all aluminum mast. Hobie says you can install a mast tang (the H14 mast tang) into the comptip, but this seems like a lot of pressure to put on fiberglass using rivets. Any comments on comptip vs aluminum mast with a spin?

2. Will my bow tangs be able to support the additional stress? Any issues with the hull tips not being strong enough?

3. I have read some forums from around 10 years ago talking about how the Hobie Europe spin sail is better than the US version. Is this true? Has this changed in the last 10 years?

Thanks!
Andy


We only offer the Euro kit with snuffer now complete - If you buy a Spinnaker kit from a US dealer it is the same as sold worldwide.
Part # 20999020
The tang on the comptip works fine - we have installed hundreds of spi kits this way and have never had an issue - not once.
