Anybody know of anyone in Chicago area that knows how (and has done) hull bottom jobs on a 16? I prefer not to attempt this, lest I end up screwing up my hulls. :?

Its really hard to mess up
You can always sand away your mistakes away
Unless you are racing a bottom job can probably wait
My 16 had a really bad drag area however hobies have really thick keels
half the fun of a hobie is working on them

If you do not race
Try Marine Tex and place a little on the flat spots
I have done this with a few boats with really good results
important to mix per instructions
Marine Tex is also good to have in the Hobie Hell Box
The above fix is really fast and easy

Have you read the SEP/OCT 2008 Issue of Hobie Hotline. The The Old Hobie section should have you answers
