I am looking at this boat, and the owner has it listed as a 17' Hobie cat. I have never owned a Hobie, but from some research online, it doesn't appear to have the correct frame layout for a 17. The frame appears to be mounted more like a 16, or 18. I think the seller may be unaware what model it is, and has measured it at roughly 17'. http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a362/ ... hobie1.jpghttp://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a362/jkwynn/hobie.jpg
If you can identify it, do you feel that $800 is a fair price with solid hulls, average sails, new tramp, and a trailer. Keep in mind that I am new to Hobies, and to sailing in general for that matter, and am not looking for top of the line.
