Hobie 14 Turbo Jib blocks  Bottom

  • I have a 14 Turbo (converted from unirig) that has the jib blocks on the front crossbar. As a result, I cannot get the right sheeting angles on the jib. Can I get the wire for under the tramp, and the proper blocks for the conversion? I believe I can modify the tramp with grommets to accept them.
    Many thanks. I am new to cat sailing, and appreciate any and all suggestions.
  • I'm sure you can still get the parts from any Hobie Dealer, they still sell the Hobie 14 Turbo Kit on page 16 of the current catalog.

    Make sure your Hobie 14 has a dolphin striker if you are running a jib. It might help get you setup if you look at the Hobie 14 Turbo instructions. It shows where to put the holes in the tramp for the jib blocks.
