The crucial defining issue for most boards from that era is: do you have the mastbase/mastfoot connector that need to make the board useable? If yes, do you want to sail the board?


I do have the mast base for the fanatic and the mistral. The hifly has a regular mast track screwed into the track.

Back when I had boards with proprietary deck boxes, I'd fabricate a pair of flat rectangular metal blanks, drill and tap them for Chinook two-bolt deck plate bolts, drop them into the slot, mount the deck plate, and ... violins! ... plug in a universal universal. Simple and solid for sailors who can't be bothered with sliding a fragile track-mounted car back and forth dynamically.

I learned to sail on one of those Hifly 320 fun boards. Looking at the specs on it now, I'm not sure how I was ever successful learning on a 63 cm wide 140L board- that thing probably had to float 240 lbs between me, the board and those absurdly long booms. But once the safety release mast track started releasing all of the time, I pulled everything out and jammed in a Chinook box into the aluminum track along with a bunch of sawed up plastic cutting board to keep stuff from sliding around.

Maybe 2 years ago when we were getting ready to sell my parents house, I had to pull it out of the shed that it had been sitting in for 20 years. I listed it for free on Craigslist and IWindsurf; and someone who had recently broken the same board came by and grabbed it.
