Thanks but I have already received that gift and have been receiving it for many years. I am a subscriber to Sea Kayaker (excellent magazine) and fully understand how to read their stability charts.
I also know that the current incarnation of the Hobie Outback, in large swells and seas, will turn over or toss you out long before the 2005 model will. And I understand why.
Although, I still have no idea what your point is supposed to be. This thread has been about sailing the Pro Angler, not stability of various hulls.
I think it is wishful thinking on your part to believe that Hobie will do a retro outback series in bringing back the 05 model, I would imagine it would be hard from Hobie's perspective to justify the retooling etc.
