Re: How to choose a daysailer/dinghy

Mstern, my comment not directed at you. No offense intended!

I guess i am oversensitive to some of the uniformed comments made about the boats. As well as the misconceptions. Comments that the boat is uncomfortable, it's slow downwind, it won't go to weather etc etc. Says who and compared to what?

That said, a Hobie 16 may not be the best boat in this situation. The boats are powerful, some people aren't comfortable launching off docks, and by design, if you want to sail the boat to it's potential, usually you are going to get wet. But then again, That's how it goes on many small boats. Part of the fun!!!!
