Hi guys... I have 2 Hobie 21 SC's. They were built in 2000 and 2001. The one manufactured in 2001 i bought Brand new from Hobie in Aug of that year and it had a sail number of 340. The other one was used and i was told was purchased new in Mid 2000 and had a sail number of 333.

Since i have had my new SC i have purchased 2 new main sails from Hobie. The first in May 2003 sail number 354 and the colour scheme was outrigger (turquoise blue yellow and green) and the other was only in April 2008 sail number 374 ( All turquoise blue, Special order).
I bought the used 2000 built SC in Oct 2005 and was given a brand new never been used all white mainsail numbered 373.

Whats fascinating to me is that if you go by sail numbers. Since OCT 2005 when i bought the used boat 373 there hasn't been one sail or even sport cruiser catamaran sold by Hobie cat cause i purchased a special order sail 374 in April this year. I have sinced learned that the sport cruiser line has been closed by Hobie a few years now but doesn't really explain them not selling any replacement sails between mid/late 05 and now?

By the way i use my 21 SC commercially in the Caribbean island of Barbados doing coastal cruises and snorkelling excursions. I have also had every single problem posted on these board about the SC i.e Comtip luff pull out, replacement centerboard springs etc. I can also give you some other horror stories especially since i use them 24/7 365. You know what i love them and wouldn't trade them for anything.

Happy SC sailing guys.

Please post your "horror stories".

I'm planning to take my SC to Baja, eventually, it would be great to be able to anticipate problems.

I have # 211 (from a 95 boat) and 172 (i think) from a 94 SC
