It's probably true about Papaya. Not sure about the red.
I know that dirt just sloughs of of my dune colored Island like water off of a sea gulls back.
Sometimes I actually think it looks cleaner when it's dirty.

From what i can tell, red is for liberal democrats, and yellow is for all others.
Whenever i approach a person in a red A.I., i always Say, "gee i guess they were out of yellow ones when you went to buy it, hu?" Gets me some pretty strange looks. As for the original question about hard to keep clean, who knows.

... I noticed that the colour was not named Golden Papaya. It is named Island Breeze or just Breeze, (not sure about that).

I asked my local dealer about it and she said that the plastic material now was a bit harder and little more glossy than before. And therefore Hobie changed the name. ...

You're over a week late on your April fools joke 8)


It was never intended to be a joke. By coincidence I just found a PDF file named "2010-11_Hobie_Sailing_Collection". On page 10 is a picture of 3 Adventure Islands in different color schemes. Grey hull and with blue in the sail is called Island Azul, yellow hull with yellow & blue in the sail is called Island Breeze and finally red hull with red in the sail is called Island Smoke.

Um, no, they are the names of the sail colours, not the hull. On page 46, under the comparison table, the hull colours are listed as
Golden Papaya
Red Hibiscus
Ivory Dune
