Hobie 16, 80s+90s forestay thingymejib?  Bottom

  • Hi all, been away from the forum for 10?years or so but have been enjoying my summer boat 5.2 through that time.

    But recently have been dabbling with a 1980 and 1994 hobie16.

    Both have a seemingly meangingless plastic/stainless bit in the lower section of the forestay chainplate, have removed on both boats to get the jib lower and hopefully hanging-up less but am wondering what this little complicated bit was for , before it got phased out on the 00 boats

    Hopefully pic to follow

  • Perfect, thank you Mike!

    I'll go back and get that bit from the box of parts I had to assemble the current 16 from
