Eugene & Sharon Cisneros & Ollie
Mr. Oliver (Ollie) waits anxiously for his first sailing experience.
Since that first outing, Ollie is the first to board.
Here is "Sail Cat"
in pretty much the condition in which we found her.
The PVC tubes are materials for trailer mounted cat boxes.
Hobie 16 rudders adapted to V15
I have routed the rudder plate 1/16" deep for a better fit, but it really isn't necessary. The plate must be located with the same relationship to the cord of the rudder as with the original rudder. I just laid the old rudder on top of the Hobie with the cords and one of the holes lined up and then marked through the original holes. I then plugged the unused holes with marine filler.

They say that a boat is a hole in the water that you throw money into......
Actually, when you think about it, sailing can be a very inexpensive aspect of boating compared to most. The wind is free; no $3/gal
fuel required! No noise, no pollution.....just fun.
