sailing the Hobie

2 posts in this topic

Finaly got a chance to sail the Hobie. I thought the sail was just a gimick but I was wrong it makes the most inovative fishing kayak even more versatile. I dont think I would bother with it in the bay but in the fall striper run in the ocean You could troll for hours. the boat rips with the sail and holds a fairly high angle into the wind without a true dagerboard. The flippers provide plenty of resistance to tack through the wind.The sail rolls up and bungies in place in the second paddle lash if not needed.
