Does any one know if the hulls from a Hobie 14 or 16 will fit in a 3.5

Indeed - had never heard of it until I ran across that post while browsing one day.

The "memories" PDF there indicated the pylons on the 3.5 are round. So without a lot of work (a lot of work) the other hulls would not fit.

Yep, pylons are round and spacing is totally different. Not going to work without major modification.

So, why the question? The rig and rudders are so small on the 3.5 that it wouldn't power a boat the size of a 14 or 16 very well.
