Hello, I am looking for some help.
I purchased a sailboat (not Hobie Cat) and with the boat came a sail that the previous owner was using as a jib. From the research I've done soo far I believe the sail is a Hobie 16 jib, can someone help me to confirm this?
I have taken a few picutes and can email them.
The sail is light blue, blue, purple, red, and orange in color from bottom to top.

Here are the measurements:
Luff: has a cable running through it. Cable is 187" or 15'7" , the fabric is 184" or 15'4"
Foot: 65" or 5'5"
Leech: 181" or 15'1" measured on arch
There is a window in the lower portion that is 7.5" by 21.5".
There is a trapizoidal/rectangular piece of metal on the outhaul that is 8" (longest) by 1.5" and has 5 (.5") holes.

I am also planning to sell the sail, would anyone have a good idea of price range? There are no tears or patches it does have a few little stains and is crispy!

Thanks!
Steve

If Hobie made... it would have a small company patch on the tack.

Colors sound Hobie. H16s have 4 battens in the standard sail. The rec version is not battented... maybe that is it? The dims are close for leech and foot anyway.

Yeah I supose that would have been an important detail! Yes it does have a patch that reads "Hobie Sails Manufactured by Coast Catamaran Corp. Usa".
There are no battens or batten pockets.

Sounds like the H16 Recreational / Furling jib.

List price is currently $399.95 for White.

Steve, That may be the Carumba sail color from 1980. Check out this PDF file and look at the first sail color from 1980.
