At 1/15th the cost of an Inter20, the MAXI rig sailed to a tie-break and won the White or Wheat regatta in Pensacola, Fl. There was to much wind for the reacher up wind but really put on the afterburner going downhill. Trapezing upwind and blasting downwind; WAHOO!!

I know this is an old post, but can you tell me the basics of your "MAXI" rig?
Getting back in Hobies after decades absent.
Like the rotomolded hulls, but no sporty offerings.
Don't really care about class rules or racing.
Want a single handed speed deamon.
My brother had a modified H17, but he sold recently.

Oh boy, that was a while ago!!

Squaretop mainsail fit onto a H14 boom, roller reacher on a 16' pole, reacher tang 12" above the mast hound on an all metal H14 mast, sheeted off the turbo slots on the tramp (need the wire underneath). Sorry the pics are long gone. Maybe Damon on the Beachcats can find them for you. It was a lot of fun! It was the basis for the Formula 14 here in the USA.

Have fun!
:wink:
