I have 2 Hobie 16's. The first one I've had for years, but is a parts boat due to soft hulls and one of the hulls folding backward when I pitchpoled it. The other I bought for my son a few weeks ago. Good hulls, but needs other work. Good thing I have the parts boat. For 450 I couldn't pass it up.

If the H18 is in good shape, keep it and get rid of the 16's. The H16 doesn't have enough buoyancy in the bows and is way too easy to pitchpole. Besides, the 18 is much faster.
