I have what i believe to be a 1974 Hobie Monocat. I dont know anything about it. Can anyone provide any info on this model? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There is a reference to it on the Hobie Bravo pages... about it being the grand daddy of the Bravo:

>>Design Note: Hobie History revisited. Hobie Cat's new Hobie Bravo combines decades worth of design and experience to achieve a boat with the style, function and durability expected from a Hobie. (more)<<

There is a link to a copy of the original 4 page brochure:

Now that's great service Matt.

:idea: How about going through the Hobie archives again and finding the same kind of info for my '75 Hobie 3.5 ? :D

Matt, thanks for the data on the Hobie 12. I had one from 1972 to 1975. Great little boat. The Bravo seems quite a lot larger. We also had a Hobie 10, made of ABS plastic same as the H-12.

Matt,

I had found that already. Unfortunately it doesn't show much details. :cry:

For example, I am missing the mast top cover. Is there a chance that it could be the same as the Hobie 12 or any other boat HC made in the past ? :?:

I imagine that there's not much staff left for Q&A from the time my boat was built in 1975 ...

Still thankful for everything you can provide.

Hubert

I recently purchased a '74 Hobie 12 for my daughter to learn the basics on. I've found the manuals for it on here but I'm still lost on something. This certain boat had the Hawaiin Tropic logo on the sail and on the port/starboard side of the craft. Is this some type of promotional boat for Hawaiian Tropic through Hobie? Anyone have any type of history about this or other boats like it? please feel free to email me! Thanks
