Google search in your geographic area for sailing clubs. Try your local sailing areas. Go out and find other Hobie Sailors. For the price of a smile, most Hobie sailors will OVERWHELM you with advice. For a beer or two, they might invite you to go sailing with them. Life could be worse.
Start with the teflon chip under the casting at the bottom of the mast, the raising of the mast, then the shrouds, then the forestay, then the adjustments.
The rigging is interesting in that:
A: You are dealing with a sailing craft that has an extremely high power (sail-size) -to-weight ratio. This translates into stresses that can only be managed by clever engineering and proven rigging.

B: Sheets are generally double function with no loose ends.
