I am a long-time (20+ years) Hobie 16 sailor, but the boat hasn't been in the water for a while, as other activities have intervened. Normally I sail on a smallish lake, but have sailed Narragansett Bay, Lake Sebago, Hampton, NH and other large bodies of water often in the past.
Does anyone know of anyplace in New England or New York state that rents Hobie cats (or other decent catamarans)? I would like to take the wife sailing during an upcoming vacation, but am not prepared to do what's necessary to haul my boat, i.e. install a trailer hitch, register trailer, fix trailer, etc.
Thanks in advance.
I am not aware of anyone in Maine renting cats. I tried the (only) Hobie dealer in Maine, in Falmouth, when looking for a used Wave, inquiring about picking up a used rental at end of season. No rentals here.
You may want to try Fayes Boat Yard near Lake Winipawsaukie(sp?) NH, they may have something. Google them. They are a Hobie dealer also.
