BUMP!

More people need to see this. Often we cat sailors have to come up with something to accomodate several of our "toys" into one multifunctional device that makes life easier and solves several problems at once without costing an arm and a leg. You have done it! What inspiration. You definitely need a job w/Hobie. Imagine being able to carry your H.Cat, two kayaks a couple bikes and have transportation and storage worked out for all - especially useful for road trips, vacations ect where we hobie guys need to drive to regattas. I need to upgrade my H20 trailerex trailer to accommodate my H16 on top of it. Ideas? put four padded cradles at each corner on the 20's crossbars or build "T" bars? [ TT ] with the vertical supports on the inside of the H20 hulls anchored to trailer tubing?

You guys are an inspiration.

Tim
BTW, the Hobie 18 MAGNUM wings work great on a Hobie Miracle 20.

Wow.. more views than than the FAQ in just 3 days.. some impressive modifications.. would love to see some more detail on the righting pole.. can you show some close up on those attachments and lines. Do you have any video or pictures of it in action. seems like the joint where the windsurfer mast attaches to beam would be vulnerable?

I'm also interested in your righting system but could not open your photos. Could you e-mail them to me? wxup@yahoo.com. How far out on the pole did you need to get to right the boat?
