A sunfish Pirate?!?!? Are you f...ing crazy? A Hobie 16 sure but a sunfish? You can't do Cape Horn in a sunfish! Step into my office 'cause you're fired!

I guess the boat with the escape hatch was not suitable, eh? And yes, as suggested, don't forget the BBQ grill.

PS - What was the name of your boat? Giulietta is already taken. I guess you could try it with one 'T' versus two.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

All these fine jokes and no Portugese to throw them at.

Such a waste.

Hey, I passed a billboard tha other day that had one of those preprinted "stretch over" ads on it that was coming loose. I couldn't help thinking that it would be a great spinnaker for your high adventure!

I hate to say it guys, but it's already been done! Brazilian sailor Beto Pandiani has taken his Hobbie cat across the Drake Passage to Antarctica. His first adventure was going from Florida to Ilhabela (Brazil) by Hobbie cat. he also did an Arctic trip (East coast NA-Newfoundland to Greenland, I think). Anyway, just google his name and you'll find a number of links.
I know this thread started as a joke, but sometimes fact is stranger than fiction ...

Oh, and I forgot to mention his latest expedition: crossing the Pacific in a hobbie cat. I believe he's already underway.

Well if its already been done in a hobie cat then I want to change to a Macgregor 26. That way we can waterski and tube if we get bored. Everyone on sailnet loves the mac26.

Don't bother with the ballast, it will just slow you down.

Beto Pandiani did it in a 20' Eagle Cat, carbon fiber proto. Not even close to a 16" Hobie
