Has anyone seen these before? This is the first time I've come across them. Are they made by Hobie? Looks like they mount right on the front of a H16. A guy has them posted on Craigslist for $45.

Looks like a piece of history there! I feel like it's the '70s again!

Amazing how people will post stuff for sale without even cleaning it.

Not '70s. Late '80s / early '90s. This ad was from the Jan/Feb Hobie HOTLINE magazine

And what cost $190 in 1989 = $350 today.

Awesome flyer. Thanks for posting that. I'm on the fence on picking these up. Would be handy for a slow day on the water and a place to store a cold beverage.

Cool! Those will probably clean up nicely.

Hey buxton,
Sorry, but I couldn't pass on this one. Picked them up for $70 about 2 hours ago after I got out of work. Also, made some new friends that I look forward to sailing with.

Thanks DanITman for posting this or I would have missed this great deal right in my own area.

That was a pretty crappy thing to do.
