I noticed that. What's a new jib cost? I guess I would need more than the jib though- hardware as well.
The other thing that its missing is EPO rudders.
Definitely things to consider. New EPO 3 rudders are approaching $1k for a pair and I would guess that a new jib, battens, forestay, and halyard would be close to another $1k (of course you Hobie dealer can give you firm numbers). So if those items are needed, you are beginning to approach the cost of a new boat for one that is over 10 years old.
You also mentioned that the boat is in Florida. The front crossbar is clearly faded which would lead me to believe that the boat has spent some time outside in the sun uncovered. I would question how much life the tramp has left.
All in all, I would assume it's a good boat as long as no major structural defects, but you definitely want to consider all the added costs to get the boat up to speed.
If it's got the original jib, then I'd say that's a bonus as you can sell the furling jib and recoup some of the cost. If it doesn't have the original jib, I'd say that's a major negative. Even the cost of shrouds- if the boat has original rigging, then it's due for a change and you're looking at close to $500.
