I found an H16 for $100 for a friend of mine, with trailer and good sails. Only problem was some old lines and a tear in the tramp.
I'm thinking: pitchpoling means you ran into a wave whose height is greater enough than the length of your boat that it can toss it tail-over-tincups.
How does a Hobie 16 get into a sea state that severe? Or are there conditions that will toss a Hobie less than that?
