Re: Trimaran- Hobie AI
The Weta looks like a more sophisticated design and should be able to hit higher speeds when there is adequate winds, but the combined main hull and outer hulls are 168 lbs and that does not include the rig so the Hobie is probably a little lighter. The Weta looks more expensive, but it also looks much, harder to paddle or portage. I also agree with Overbored that the ability to pedal while doing other things is a huge advantage.
