I just bought #647 after a 20-year break from sailing. Can some of you Miracle veterans recommend a cat tuning guide book that's applicable to the H-20? Videos? I'm US Air Force in Korea and will be back home in Bossier City, LA, in August. Once I figure out how to assemble and tune this thing I'll be mixing it up with you guys on the central Gulf Coast, Texas and Southern Plains states next spring. Thanks.

Karl, The Hobie U link was awsome! I didn't know that existed. :D

Lots of good info on there. Makes me think I need to read it again.

:D John, Good stuff also. The Fleet 297 website is great. The sail pattern link conjurred up a lot of old memories. In my teen age days in the 70's I raced a Banana H-16 and moved up to a Boomer H-18 in the 80's. I think the striped jibs that matched the mainsails looked a lot better that the generic solid color jibs that we've seen for many years now. I look forward to hitting some regattas in Div 7 next year. NW LA isn't that far away.
