I am glad I am not the only one with this illness!

1 '82 H18
1 '81 H18
1 '86 H18
1 '82 H16
1 '72 H14

1 '85 Prindle 16
1 '83 Prindle 18

I have 3 acres so I think I have room for a few more.

Apparently one H16 wasn't enough in my case. I just picked up a yellow hulled/ sail '84 nationals that I really couldn't pass up.

Must say that feeding the itch more than anything is the need to have more sail suits. Count is up to 3 sets now: '84 Tsunami set, '84 Yellow Nationals set, '04 Seaside main w/ blue furling jib, and a while furling jib.

I think the Hobie addiction is alive and well.

If I had the space to store them inside I would have an M20, an F18, an F16, and a DNA. That's only about $100k in catamarans...... :D

As is my F16 sits outside far more than I like.

If I lived on a lake I would pick up another jetski, and I'd have to have a wakeboarding boat too.

That seems to be correct!

I keep finding them and reminding myself to get good at sailing the one I have before getting more. It would be a blast to have a couple so that I could race friends when they came out to the cottage, but I am going to try hard to not get another older one. After next summer, if I can get some good hours on it, I want to get a newer one and start racing. It seems like a blast.

A less expensive answer:

One H16 + many sets of (colorful) sails :D

Cool post. Good to know I'm not alone....

2 X Hobie 21 SE
3 X Hobie 16 (Looking for 1 more)
4 X Lasers

I'm shipping them all to Mahahual, Mexico where I'm building a small 6 suite sailing resort. The aim will be to do what very few other resorts offer....well maintained fleets of one design boats with decent sails and a race course just off the beach.

I was a one boat guy Prindle 18 then end of last season I got a free H17 and I just picked up 1.5 Prindle 16's for almost nothing. So right now the backyard is a little full. I still would love more but probably can't handle any more right now. All but the P18 needs some TLC.

My fleet is much smaller than I would like:

'73 H16
11' styrofoam snark monohull
12' jon boat with '72 7hp sears outboard

I know, I know, only one Hobie. However, if I could afford them, I would like to add: A Hobie 14, a Hobie Bravo, A Getaway, two AIs, or one TI, a Narca (just because the name sounds cool!), an H18, A smaller sized bowrider, and some kind of submarine.

Even if all of these boats fell into my lap, I doubt my thirst would ever be quenched. After all, when I built my first plywood boat, I felt completely satisfied crawling down the river in a 6' rectangle with a trolling motor. But now, many boats later, I still yearn for more.
