Certainly Hobie has put out sales pics showing 2 people on the wire (bikini babes included, nach :wink: ), but in the real world, it's always a single setup. Is there a stress limit? Will warranties be voided? Can the Marlins make it to the World Series this year?

Double Trap on a 17?

Don't recall a picture on that one, but no, we do not condone double trapeze on the 17 Mast. That is, unless the double weight is similar to one typical crew.

Matt,

Would 120 kg (264 pounds) count as one person?

Sad... whereas on the H-18, in real life, I've seen as many as 3 (or was it 4?) people trapped out, with no apparent harm.

Perhaps this is why most bikini models weigh under 118 lbs... lol.

The 18 mast has diamond wires to support the load.

264 lbs should be OK.

Diamond wires, ahh soo... GOOD POINT!

Still, the H-18 is definitely a load up the gang of 4 for a care-free night sail kind of boat.
