Hey there--I recently bought a 1981 Hobie 16. Novice sailor but already enjoying sailing it on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Using Rick White's videos to learn but of course understand that time on the water is key..
My original Neil Pryde sails are in good shape but do not have tells. I need to 1) buy tells 2) place them on both sails. Would also like to get shroud tells but may end up using cassette tape (I am old and there is plenty lying around). Is there a best tell to buy and is there a good diagram that shows best placement? I
The boat leaks, is a beach cat, and electricity access is a problem. Any ideas about how to best deal with leaks? Figure it takes on about a liter each 3 hours or so...(replacing boat not an option, smile.)
Thanks for any help..RWs videos are amazing. Bravo!
