Hello all,
Just wanted to say hi, as I just TODAY purchased a Hobie 14. She's well used but appears to be in pretty solid shape. The PO is a sailing enthusiast and just upgraded to a 16. I'm introducing myself since once I get her home in a few weeks, I'll be cleaning, checking, repairing, replacing a few things (or more) and will probably be on here asking a lot of questions if I can't find info in the archives. I sailed with a friend on his Hobie 14 last summer and fell in love.

So...HI!

Chris

Sweet, welcome to the club! I got mine in late December '09 and it's a great hobby. Not just the sailing, I also enjoy improving, restoring and fixing my boat. It seems the previous owners didn't take much care, didn't have much of a clue and didn't sail much either.

I've been taking my 14 out a lot and the old girl isn't used to that much action, so I've had to fix a few things along the way. It can be a very pricey hobby if you have an old boat, but you learn some great DIY skills on the way, and makes it more rewarding. This forum and the Internet in general can help you gather a lifetime of knowledge on a new subject in such a short time.
