Next get rid of the silly plastic mast tip.
Snowball's chance in Hell on that one.
My 16's so light (312 lbs), I'm looking for ways to add weight, not remove it.
Also, I'd rather replace a $96 stock stick when it breaks than a fancy-dancy carbon stick that costs >$300.
And if you think a carbon stick will give you a competitive advantage, think again. If you want a competitive advantage, spend more time on the water, not $ on the boat.
Take a look at IHCA General Class Rule #2:
2. INTENT AND OBJECTIVE
Hobie Catamarans are designed to be easy to sail with the least amount of trouble to owners. Boat and component changes, which have no direct bearing upon boat speed, are the only changes allowed. The intent and objective of the
INTERNATIONAL HOBIE CLASS ASSOCIATION (IHCA) RULES are:
a) To keep each boat as equal, simple and cost free as possible by rigidly maintaining, without deviation, the one-design features of the Hobie Cat for class racing.
b) To increase boat speed only through the use of racing tactics and sailing skills
This proposal is more likely to fail on this aspect than anything else.
