That's only part of the problem. HobieCats are not meant to be moored - period. If you leave a traditional cat (fiberglass sandwich construction ie. the 16, 17 18...) in the water, it will become waterlogged. They don't have a barrier coat! I'm not sure what would happen with a rotomolded boat (ie. the Wave or Getaway).
My windrider leaks, but only through the bolts to the outside of the boat, not through the plastic. The plastic part of the boat has held up very well.
I am still trying to keep a battery and automatic bilge pump working on the boat.
