Hobie Catamaran 16, 1988 and trailer.

This boat was purchased used mid-summer last year (2013). It sails like a dream and is roaring fast. The improvements and additions bring it up to a fully loaded model wanting for nothing. It's back on the market because I moved from MN to CA and cannot trailer it out nor can I store it at my new residence.
