I have an 85 14 and have been thinking about upgrading it to a turbo. The kits are pretty expensive new, are there used turbo kits out there?

I have a complete turbo kit and an aftermarket dolphin striker kit (both used) that I would consider selling for $350.

What all does the turbo kit contain? My 14 already has the dolphin striker on it.

I've got a "kit" with everything, less the jib sail and dolphin striker

which includes:

Upper forestay w/swivel
Jib furling assembly
Bridles
Jib blocks w/sheet and shackles
Jib block support wire

This describes the turbo setup pretty well but strangely it doesn't mention the dolphin striker which is a necessary prerequisite.

My kit has:
Upper forestay w/swivel
Jib furling assembly
Bridle wires
Trapeze wires
Trapeze adjustment lines and rope locks
Trapeze dogbones
Trapeze shockcord
Jib blocks w/sheet and shackles
Jib block support wire
Dolphin striker kit (seperate kit if buying new)

$350 for the above

I also have a used but workable Hobie jib that has had a repair for an additional $80

Cheers,
Sullivar
