Hobie 16

I was 30 years old bought a Hobie 16 with a 15 degree bend in the mast. I figured I could straighten it out somehow. Before I could a storm blew it over and totaled the mast. Me and the insurance company split the cost of the new mast. Sailed it in the ocean mostly. Fun going in and out through the surf.
Windsurfed after that. Now I can sail and stay dry. What a concept!

A styrofoam Sea Snark, back in the mid-late '60s. My dad hauled it on top of the family car down to the Ohio River just below Lock #13 in McMechen, WV where we put her in. She had a drop board and a single yellow plastic mainsail.

I was hooked ever since.

A nice fast 505 but too hard to handle with no experience. Moved on to a Hobie16 6 months later. That was in 1972. Wouldn't mind having the 505 back now
