Based on what the other guys said, I’m not sure if you are interested in getting a new or newer set of sails or not. But if you are looking for a newER and in better shape set of sails I have a extra set of “Cat Fever” sails that I’m looking to get rid of. I just dropped them off to be repaired this week, the main had some wear spots and the jib has some minor rodent damage (from the previous owner, not my fault).
In reference to a link posted earlier -
this is a color history of hobie 16 sails. I have the same dilema I think my hulls are 1986 yet my sail pattern shows 1983
They are the sails in pattern #53 in the year 1981.
I’ll be honest, They aren’t brand new world class racing sails but they are crisp and have good color. They are good for someone looking for a good pair of used sails though. If they weren’t the exact same as what I already have I would keep them, I’d rather buy some other upgrades though.
As long as there aren’t any surprises with the repair costs then I’ll be looking to get 350 out of them.
Also it looks like you are in Hastings, MI. I live and work in the Grand Rapids area and I’m usually headed south once or twice a month to visit family in Indiana, if you end up being interested you don’t have to worry about shipping.
I’ll PM you my info and we can stay in touch if you are interested, if not let’s keep in touch anyways and maybe hit the water someday.
