      Thanks for passing on the news. He was a legend.
      Jeez, I’ve got to clean up my H16 and get sailing!

      Hello Old Friends -

      I hope everyone is well.  I rarely see traffic on the beachcats listserve these days (certainly never the 50+ post days from a decade ago).  I suppose most of us have moved on if not from hobies, then from the old listserve formats.  I hope those of you who still receive these emails are well -- especially those of you from the old hobie-nichimen listserve days. 

      For those who haven't heard, Hobie Alter passed away today.  Surfer, sailor and general renegade he was . . . he will be missed.  The H-16 changed my life and is still my idea of the funnest boat to sail.  I hope I have another one (or something similar inspired by it) again someday soon.  For now, I am sailing slightly larger much slower displacement boats and chasing the dream that the days on the water on my H-16 originally stoked.

      A couple of links:
