    Aloha From Maui, I have a '72 Hilu in California that needs some TLC, Would like to ressurect it.
    Are there parts available? As a kid I would have contests with my friends to see how far we could keep it on one hull, strapped surfboards to it and sailed from Newport to San Clemente and back,
    sailed it on the Chesapeake and would tow it with my bike to the beach in Huntington and surf it up and down 'til the lifeguards chased me out. Versatile design. didn't like to jibe though, always stuck in irons. This last bit is a part of the design I am trying to correct. I was wondering how the mistral
    sail worked for this, any input is warmly appreciated.
    MAHALO!
