Does anyone in south-east Australia want a free set of Hobie 20 hulls and beams?

    We had our Hobie 20 written off after the mast was broken in a capsize. We've replaced it with a Formula 18 and now have the Hobie 20 hull, beams, jib and main available for free, if anyone is interested in parts for a project boat.

    The Hobie 20 hulls are basically modified Tornado hulls. They are big and tough and would make very good amas (or even a main hull) if anyone is building a small tri.

    The boat is in Canberra, on a good trailer (which is NOT free!) and could be delivered to Sydney or Melbourne for petrol money. The hulls and beams are in pretty good condition for a '90s boat. The only damage is a broken inspection port.

    The jib is old and has a dodgy luff zipper IIRC. The main suffered some minor tears in the capsize.

    That was quick - the boat has gone to someone who has a 20 with a dodgy hull and beams. It's great to know she'll race again.
