Over the winter I converted my H14 to a Turbo, but I rigged mine as a "Mini 16". It has no roller furler and utilizes a separate forestay and jib halyard system like an older (pre-Aussie halyard) Hobie 16. It works great and allows me to remove the jib when I'm not sailing. Here's a link to how it's done: http://midwestsailing-teh.blogspot.com/ ... erger.html
. I modified some of the measurements on the rigging based on my own second guessing, but it works great. If you send me a private message with your email address, I can send you the rigging measurements that I used. My motivation for going with the Mini 16 rig was that I didn't want to leave my jib up all season either. My boat is stored mast-up. Even Hobie tells you in their catalog that the jib snorkel is not intended to be a permanent storage solution.
