Hi, My hobie adventure has developed a crack in the front of the mirage drive well. I have contacted hobie through "support" but have not gotten a reply yet. I bought the adventure as a demo boat from a dealer in Olympia, WA in 2011.
Having done some research (googling) on the subject it appears that a repair is very difficult and I may be able to get another hull. I really like my hobie adventure and would like to take it offshore, but I am very concerned about the steady leak.
Any tips for moving the process forward so I can get back on the water?
Do not take it off shore. that crack will allow water into the hull at a very rapid rate when you are peddleing... You need to contact you Hobie dealer who sold you the yak and get them to start the warranty work and give you advice on what to do to use the yak. Just because you bought a use demo that does not void the warranty. Let the dealer work for you now that you need help. Good Luck
