I saw this sail on craigslist....is this legit? Any reason it would not have numbers?

Also, can a 14 sail be rigged on a Hobie 16 mast?

Not made by Hobie Cat would be my guess. Class "H" logo is too large to be Hobie Factory Made. Head panel looks wrong.

Too small for use on a Hobie 16. Especially if your boat has a CompTip. A sail head has to be fully hoisted and held locked-in my the halyard on a CompTip. Otherwise the sail can pull out of the plastic luff track.

I don't think I have a CompTip.

Also, wouldn't running a Hobie 14 sail be similar to a reefed 16 sail, as far as how high up you would run it on the mast?

Yes... if you have an all aluminum H16 Mast.

Ah ok, sorry to be a pain, I'm pretty sure I have an all aluminum hobie 16 mast, is there anyway I can double check? Is there a serial/part number somewhere?

One piece of aluminum (all aluminum) or aluminum lower and fiberglass upper (CompTip).

CompTips are black in color and have a seperate piece snapped-on for the luff track. Double sheaves in the head for the halyard. The aluminum mast has a large single sheave head.
