Thank you everyone for your replies.
@ hrtsailor, I take my hat off to you sir, keep on doing what you are doing
Well I took the plunge, it was an ebay blind purchase, bought the H16 in the same way.
Its not the best I have seen, well only ever seen two for sale in the last three years, the H14 seems to be rather rare here in the UK and the Turbo even more so. This actually appeals to me. I have a number of Hobie items starting back when I was given a Hobie Skateboard “sidewalk surfer” back in the 70's and now I have a H14 to add to my collection!
So, the Hulls appear to have had some work done on them, I just noticed ports have been added which would indicate transom restoration, but according to the seller the hulls have been totally refurbished a couple seasons ago. Dont think this is to much of problem, the H16 required a bottom job due to it taking in water and I enjoyed applying what I learned from this site and other when fixing the H16 up. For me it's all part of the enjoyment of ownership.
So, Final bid: £663 with trailer, not too bad and one thing is for sure people were bidding to push it there, so there should not be any issue in selling it some point in the future, if I so wish to.
Here's a pick:

Something just occurred to me after writing, hope the disappointed bidders don't find me here!
