I have removed the cabin from my sport cruiser and have been sailing it quite often. My question is: Does it effect the integrity of the boat having it removed. Does it add support to the middle crossbar? Is there any other reason i am missing not running with it on?

I removed the cabin so i can better inspect the boat and never put it back on thinking

1. it adds weight to the boat
2. i do not need the added storage
3. it causes wind drag
4. it may make righting the boat easier without the cabin

Thoughts

Matt?? hobie sport cruisers??

No problem!

It does affect how the forward trampoline fits, but other than that... all good reasons for taking it off.
