I have a complete set up I am selling.

Pictures are here: http://www.thebeachcats.com/index.php?m ... emId=17781

It is the sail without the face on it--the one on the black trim boat.

You can have a hardly used sail, Harken furler, 2 piece Carbon spin pole, mast tang/pulley, halyard, Hooter sheet, frame rail reinforcements, and freshly rebuilt Oxen blocks.

Basically, you would have to drill one hole in the frame for the pole mount, drill 4 holes to rivet the mast tang on, drill 2 holes in the deck lips for the reinforcements, connect everything and you are done.

One more thing on my kit--The sail was designed specifically for a Hobie 14 and was built by Whirlwind sails. It is the Kevlar laminate sail.

I'm asking $1500 for the complete kit.
