I just bought my first Hobies. I picked up a 14 and a 16. I got the pair for 600.00. They both have trailers and neither have any soft spots. The 16 is complete. The tramp and sail are in good shape. The 14 needs new rigging and a sail. I am excited and can't wait to try them out. Is there anyone from NW Arkansas that sails Hobies? Below is a pic from the craigslist ad. It does have the jib sail. I will post more when I take them.

Congratulations!

It sounds like you made a great choice, you can never have enough Hobies. Now you have one to Solo on, and one for when you have a crew. Once you and the crew get some experience, you will be able to run races!

Nicely done. :lol: :lol:
