Description

Sew it yourself! Hobie 16 Jib Sail Kit lets you make your own jibsail. This full battened kit is made from 4oz white Dacron® using the designer's plans and features four full length batten pockets and a wire luff.

Computer plotted with seaming and hem lines plotted right on the cloth, this sail kit can be made on a home sewing machine. All panels and patches are computer cut and ready for basting and sewing. Complete instructions and support from Sailrite means there is no guess work!
