I am a new owner of a 14 Turbo. I am clueless as to rigging it. All the terminology is also new to me. I could really use some sort of colored line diagram as to where everything goes including the trapeze because the assembly manual isn't real clear to me as to what the end result looks like. Right now it is just a pile of ropes, cables, and hardware. Also would like to know the best ways to care for the sails and rigging. Any good web page or book?

Thanks

Welcome to a great forum -
:) Some of what you need - including catalog numbers for purchasing Hobie related books - etc are on this page:
http://www.hobiecat.com/experience/learn.html

Then take some time to look around the forum, especially posts by the famous JaimeZX who has photos posted as well as links to his own website showing more than you ever could ask for :shock: - about Hobies that is :wink: (HINT: use the "search" at the top of the page for posts by JaimeZX)

You will soon turn the tangle of wires and cables into about the most fun you can have with your clothes on 8)

Jim, you really have some of the most useful posts up here and realize that a picture IS worth a thousand words indeed! You are inventive, helpful to other members (me for instance) and not afraid to try stuff (ie, non-slip paint that didn't actually work) so, yeah, I bow to talent and creativity! :)

YOU DA MAN! 8)
