It would seem that I have purchased the only boat in the fleet that cannot sign up to race without some slight modifications first which sound like BIG $$$ going out. I have not called hobie to confirm, but here is the situation.
I have a 1994 17 Sport which has the boomlett. I saw that there is a conversion to equip it to an SE boat. However, I think I have to buy a main sail. Is it that I have to have a boom to qualify to race. If so, It just might be in my best interest to buy another boat and race it. If this racing thing pans out I might just step up to a Tiger or Miracle. Can anybody give me the 411 on this. Any advice on what to do?
