I'm racing a 1991 Hobie 16 with original sails and rudders. I'm going to replace both...does anyone have information on the best rudders, tiller etc. and the best deal and type of sails to buy. Also, does anyone make sails to match original color scheme. Thank you

Sails - Order from your local Hobie Dealer. You have to use OEM Sails. You can have sails made to just about any design you want if they have the colors, which they have alot of colors to choose from.

EPO3's just came out. Those are the Racing Rudders. Only Option out there other than the Std OEM. Believe you can use the Composite "Hot Stick" but check the HCANA rule book on that or someone here can chime in. Either Matt or few of the other guys will.

You can use whatever you want for tiller.Fiberglass is most commons,Carbon Fiber if you want to get fancy,PVC tubing or aluminum if you want to go cheap.
