Oh woh is me!
I have 10 grand burning a hole in my pocket and I just can’t make a decision (I know I know I sound like your wife). I have sailed Hobie 16’s since the early 70’s but my 87 model is really starting to show her age, I keep flip flopping back and fourth between a new 16 or a new getaway. I sail mostly by myself in a small inland lake and have always like the power and excitement of my 16. On the other hand I have never sailed a getaway so I would be buying the boat on a recommendation only. I like the higher capacity and the loose footed main and the roller furling jib of the getaway but I have also read quite a few negative comments about the getaway. I am just about to turn 59 and the getaway I think in not such a handful single handed as well. Sigh any input would help. Maybe we should take an online vote.
