    Smile Hobie 33 - getting ready

    I have finally found my TransPac boat, Hobie 33.
    Enough of you have convinced me to not take a J/24 so I found a Hobie 33.
    Now I need a jib, asymmetrical and The Alameda Hoist to work.

    Once she is operational I want two full seasons then Hawaii bound.

    Congratulations, Chad! What is her name? Looks like two Hobie 33s have done the race. Tease in 2002 @ 14:07:12:10 and Space Cowboy in 2000, DNF. From what I have read, it might be awhile for that hoist. What's Plan B?

    That hoist will be ready for you maybe in 2-3 years, if ever. You might max out the length at Brickyard Cove but that's the ONLY 4500lbs hoist left for public use in NorCal.

    Plan B is to drop the deck stepped mast and launch at Grand Marina, after Some very needed cleaning.
