Who has the oldest,(still functional and active,) catamaran?

Pictures are encouraged!

The winner receives the glory of winning and bragging, and not much else.

Since I'm first, I'll nominate my 1977 Hobie 16. (Pictured to the left, or should I say water-colored to the left.) Since I'm posting this late at night, I should stay in 1st Place for at least a few hours.

It would sail just fine if anyone had the desire to use it.

I just went out and wiped the goo off the back of my Hobie 14, it says it's a 1979, I still sail it when it's blowing too hard for the Prindle 18. If we get some of that tropical storm wind tomorrow, I might take it out.

The rules say it has to be in a sail-able condition. If woodchucks have chewed a hole in a hull and are raising a family in it, that certainly would disqualify it. -If it sinks, it stinks!

'75 Hobie 14. In original condition, with original sail and trampoline (white trampoline!). Last time used was a few days before my daughter was born, and that was 20 years ago. Previous time it was used was a good 10 years before that. I rigged it three or four years ago in front of the garage it is currently sitting in, and all the pieces are still there, it could sail tomorrow. It would need a good wash first however.

The Shark Class still has nearly 20 boats showing up at their Nationals.., and most of them are from the early 60s.
Hard to beat that!

If you take a wander through the Mosquito section on this forum you'd find a few old girls still actively sailed even tho their build dates are ~mid 70s or earlier.
Number 126 was recently purchased and although not sailable as she was it wasn't a great deal of work to put her back on the water.
My first Mozzie was #245 and it was bought by my dad in 1972 and he sailed it through till 1977 before handing it to me.

This old design still sticks it to the modern boats to this day, combine that with what most mozzie sailors seem to have... that NEVER GIVE UP attitude and you have a very strong fleet of boats that have been around since the early 60's with very little change throughout the years.

Did a seminar at Jericho in Vancouver, and the cats in that yard could make a museum.

Ahh. Looks like I could jump into the lead here. Sporting a wooden Tornado. No serial number, Old IYE beams and was saved from the landfill by me. Sails have latest measurement stamps from 1981 worlds in France, but I am pretty sure these sails are original, seeing as I have an older set of sails with inspection stamps from the 70's. You know, oak battens....

Just spent the evening putting her on the trailer and will be on the lake tomorrow. I am a bit of a luddite and dont have a camera that talks to the computer so easily but will try to take a few pics before heading out tomorrow. Will also try to get some once rigged. Looking forward to the giggles at the most bagged out jib on the planet.

The first Tornadoes came out in 1967. I read somewhere the early wooden ones had an all-up weight of 279 pounds! Or was I misunderstanding something?

so this thread would then be morphing from "old boat" to "hoarders"?
