Help! Is this fixable? The hulls are pretty solid (no delam) but it is an old boat. 73 model Hobie 16
I was sailing at the Texas City Dike in wind about 16-18 mph and setting on the edge of tramp frame flying this hull when it made a load crack/ tear sound. It lifted me up off my but as I was hooked in to the trap wire and getting a feel for things before pushing out.
A piece of angle aluminum on the inside of the hull and bolted through the side of the hull with the angle trimmed off except where it extends out on top of the anchor bar. Then Fiberglass patch the top.
and maybe add a new Anchor bar about 3' long too?
Duct Tape? lol
Maybe just make it a cheap ugly fix for the rest of the season and watch for a new starboard hull?
