For a trip of a week or more on a Hobie, it requires some creativity for storage of some food supplies and dry clothes etc. Any ideas of how to modify the hobie for some storage space???

Well a loooong time ago (1990), my brother and I went six weeks and 1100 miles of sail camping around the Baja penninsula: http://www.hobiehawk.com/BajaAdv.html

We used some rather large custom made dry bags that literally took up the front half of the trampoline. They had a zip-lock type seal and then you rolled the top a few times. Keep in mind we had an 18 with wings, so we had someplace to sit, otherwise it would have been terrible.

That was for 6 weeks, for one week you should be able to find (non-custom) dry bags to accomodate your supplies, clothes etc.

Keep in mind that if you flip, you wand to be able to somehow get at your stuff to untie it (if needed) so you can right the boat.

I would NOT recommend putting too much down inside the hulls, if you get flipped and have too much weight in your hulls it might be imposiible to right.

Have fun! Sail camping is a blast :-)

No, it was an episode of the Discovery Channel show "I Shouldn't Be Alive" about some guys who almost died when sail camping on their Hobie.

Quote:
SHIPWRECKED
The Survivors: Cousins Mark and Rob
The Dilemma: Could you survive on a deserted island?

Cousins Mark and Rob are on a fishing trip on the Sea of Cortez when they are shipwrecked on a desert island. With no food or water and with temperatures soaring they must survive on an uninhabited island until help arrives. Testing their friendship to the limit the two men drink juice from cactuses, eat raw crabs and share delusions and delirium before they finally escape.
