Hello all!

Just wanted to get the scoop on having a custom sail number. What are the procedures for going about it? Do I have to register a custom number with Hobie to see if its available, or does it not matter and you can just have a sail maker apply your new number?

Any feedback would be much appreciated! :D

Go ahead and do your own thing.
there is no 'register' of sail #'s.

Thank you for the info….

Anybody ever peeled the numbers off your sail? Does it leave a nasty residue? What kind of product is safe to use on Dacron to clean off any sticky residue left behind?

Goo Gone works well, however....
the sun will have bleached the fabric differently when covered/uncovered by sail #'s.

I was told by a sail maker to use lighter fluid. So I bought a can of ronson lighter fluid and used it. It worked well. Required some work but didn't hurt the sail cloth.

cheers
Bill
