Hi,
The saltwater got to my pedal and it froze up, do i need to order a pedal assembly or pedal only? Older V1 drive.
Thanks, Bob

If the old bike pedal type that threads into the cranks... your choices are new bike pedals (sourced from somewhere) or a new pedal and shaft assembly from Hobie Cat.

Not trying to get in between the Hobie guy and an owner, but have you tried to loosen them up with some type of penetrant and/or heat? I know a guy who NEVER rinses his drive, always fishes salt water and sometimes lets his sit for months without using them. never locked up, but get a little crusty. Once it was pretty bad, we warmed it up and messed with it a day or so and still going. If you are planning to buy new anyway, give it a shot, worse you can do is ruin something you're gonna throw away anyway. And when I say "heat", don't mean a torch... wife's hairdrier would do. get it warmer and warmer a little at a time until it gets hot.. start trying to move it a little at the time, back and forth... any kind of movement is good, keep working it and maybe a dribble of something like PB Blaster? Let it soak in over a day or so, add more, little more heat... might break loose.
