Winter is coming do not forget to protect the Best Hobie Ever from ice damage. I have drained my holes and will do my usual method to protect my boat see on previous posts. FYI I also block the trailer tongue way up to drain any water in the hulls
Also I just got a nice HC 16 so the fleet includes a HC16 actually two one is for parts. Also I have a great HC21SE and a project boat Catilina 18. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Gary.

For the last two years, I have 4 pieces of foam pipe insulation that I cram down in the holes and cover with tape. I found this was the easiest way to displace the water in the tube and to prevent damage if water does get in and wants to expand by freezing.....

Sailing season is not over!
