I checked on the Hobies yesterday both are covered ready for the winter The trailers are jacked way up to drain water and the trailer tires are on concrete blocks I really need to get the Hobie Hell Box ready for next year or at least off the dining room table
Thank you Hobie Alter for a great idea and a great fun product
Only Three more months till they are back on the water. Already have the week at Edisto Beach SC planned. I think that Edisto is still one of the best Hobie places in the Carolinas
Last summer I really enjoyed the new Hobie Captain in the family (my son Wyatt) hitting the surf in his HC16 which we rebuilt last year.
Happy Holidays to all
Former Hobie Admiral Gary

I'm doing the same thing over here in Goose Creek! Just installed some cradles on the trailer and waxed the boat to protect it somewhat while I build a cover. If you hit up edisto a lot you should really check out sailing from FT. Moultrie. Its a pretty small secluded beach that has almost no waves but access to either the harbor on windy days or the open ocean/beaches when you need the sea breeze to get going.

Mine are uncovered and on the water at least twice per week. Had to knock some ice off the rudder grudgeon the other morning in order to get it to move freely, but that's about the only trouble I've had. I intend to sail all winter, unless the local lakes freeze completely over, which they only rarely do.

Guess I am lucky to have winter water temps of 60 degrees :!: The only thing that keeps us off the water down here is wind and rain.
