Hey, it floats, moves in a generally forward direction, and cost less than
a $100 in the '60's - I bet quite a few of us got our first sail in one.
It got me hooked on sailing, which some 30 years later I still can't get
enough of. So IMHO it wasn't a stupid boat...
I also owned a Hobie 18 for years, and had a lot of fun in it. I returned
to monohulls, though. I get enough of the fast lane at work - I decided I
enjoy going slow (relative to multihulls) under sail, and like the rhythm
and pace of single hull locomotion.
To each his (or her) own,
