The man, Hobie, known by just one name worldwide, has an epic life story. This 12” x 9” hardcover book shows how it all came to be, and more, in 17 chapters with 300 pages, 120,000 words of text and 585 photographs and illustrations.
Ride the wind: A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a retractable centerboard prevents lateral slip, and the larger amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches, on deck stowage and Vantage CT Seating encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive with Glide Technology offers paddle-free locomotion when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The “AI” is also an exceptional bluewater-capable fishing platform. Equip the accessory trampoline kit for extra space and walk-around capability.
The Snorkel protects your expensive sail from harsh ultraviolet light and the elements. It features a full-length zipper for easy storage. This is not intended for long term storage. Sails must be furled tightly for the snorkel to accommodate.
