I hate when this happens.

We had a couple of 17's destroyed in a storm a couple of weeks ago, which kind of pained me. Then one of my old sailing buddies brought his 17 in for a new traveler track install. And since my first cat (a 17) was one sail number after his, it brings back a lot of memories...

And now I find out that one of our customers is probably wanting to sell a '97 17 Sport...

Do I keep it a secret and buy it myself, or help find it a good home? Would all my windsurfing gear be jealous? Would my wife hand me my butt for buying a boat?

Decisions, decisions...

BUY IT! I currently have a Hobie 18, 2 paddleboats, two sunfish style sailboats, a dingy, and a canoe. Next week I'm looking at a 20' powerboat on a trailer for $600, (needs a new interior).

I am truly an Admiral of my own fleet. :D

Get some underlings, a few cannons, you'll have the making of a nice navy. Even with out the cannons you might be able to take France with minimal if any loss's. :lol:

Heh, we have our own Hobie Shop of Horrors going on in one of our fleet member's yard. An '86 18, an '80 18 with Magnum wings, a 17, two 14's, and at least one 16...and sometimes others as well...

You mean like this?

Be careful. I've got a ton of these (all courtesy of my military buds and budettes).

And yes, I'm seriously thinking about how to get a Hobie 17 into my driveway along with all the other "schtuff".
