sending pic as email because could not figure out how to attach pic in forum
Instructions on posting photos are in the Forum FAQ. Basically, the photo must be hosted somewhere on the web (Photobucket, Facebook, etc.) and you link to it in your post.
coloring is like 40 not 38. pic looks darker than it is. maybe like 92 but solid but not 38. with gray hull. Striping in pic on hull -- orange/red -- was added by us so disregard. lettering is white, unlike 40. In article site you provided, I still do not see patterns 44 or 45.
Sails are exchanged between boats like clothes. The patterns listed are what was originally "sold" or listed in Hobie Cat brochures from the time period. Dealers very often swapped sails / hull colors to suit the ultimate purchaser.
The seagulls were almost certainly owner-added.
Also, Hobie Cat has always sold custom sails to those willing to pay for them. It may be that your sail may be one of them.
As the author and compiler of the sail pattern guide, I never noticed the missing numbers until now (six years afterwards). I looked at some of the original layouts and they are missing there, too. I can only assume that in the process of laying this out, I inadvertently skipped over those numbers.
I'll check the "Hot Flash" vs the "Heat Wave" names. I've got brochures from both those years.
