  • In the last H14 I had, there were big blocks of foam rattling around inside the hulls. Wasn't this for flotation?

  • tnellThanks Edchris

    You can’t simply copy/paste the URL. Click on the URL button, just below where you type. That will insert a set of brackets. Put your cursor inside those brackets, then paste.
    If your using an iPad, (or maybe it’s just a Safari thing), it tends to put a space after the 1st bracket, making the link useless. Delete that space & you’re good.

  • This is just a test......Edchris, the extra space must be an iPad thing because I’m using chrome instead of safari. Thanks for the tip!

  • I have to go up to edit in the top left and use paste from there to get hyperlinks to work.

  • gahambyIn the last H14 I had, there were big blocks of foam rattling around inside the hulls. Wasn't this for flotation?

    gahamby,

    Yes all the fiberglass Hobie's had rigid foam blocks inside to provide positive buoyancy. These were just loose blocks (usually wrapped in plastic) that were shaped to allow water to flow underneath and out the drain plugs if moisture did get in.

    That is a LOT different than filling the hulls with expanding foam, which sounds like what has happened to the Facebook boat. Doing the foam fill basically turns the hulls into trash, and also VERY heavy. (foam is a lot heavier than air)

    You wouldn't think anyone would do that to a boat unless it was on it's last legs an wanted to keep it sort of floating for a while longer. You'd also need to get the foam for free since that much foam would be more expensive than repairing the fiberglass!
