We recently had a request to build some bow covers for a Hobie 17. We designed and built a set that are easy to install on a boat that's rigged up with a zipper to clear the bridles or they can be installed for trailering protection, to keep grime and debris from hitting your boat on the way to your next sail. They are made with our SofTouch material to protect your gelcoat and have two buckled straps to secure each cover to the hull and front crossbar.
The covers are on their way out to a sailor working to put on the Hobie 17 North American championships on June 7th in Clear Lake, Iowa. They've already got almost 30 boats signed up! We sent them a few things to help out with the event and hope they have a great event. Clear Lake is supposed to be a fantastic Hobie venue.
