Can you post a pic? The correct config is that the sheave is inside the casting with a rivet (from the top) acting as the axle. The castings should have the Hobie H logo. Do your front castings visually match the rear ones?

This is of course assuming the front cross bar is still original.

That would be an incorrect assumption.
Integrated travelers were brought to the US in 1995 (they were introduced in Europe prior to that).


The actual track is integrated it is just the blocks on the corner castings are not, they are riveted on top.

The castings must have been replaced at some point, since the integrated track / integrated blocks in the castings were introduced together.


Not sure the above is correct. I have a 1994 SE model with integrated jib tracks, new style traveler cars, but no jib traveler adjustment blocks in the casting or otherwise. My neighbor has a 1995 boat set up the same way. We have both added after-market traveler adjustment systems.

Hobie may have been clearing inventory of older castings during the transition period, but by 2002, that certainly would have ended. I owned a '98 that had the integrated block castings.

I'm standing right next to a friend's '95 Worlds (Mexico) and it has an integrated jib track but the old style castings.

I don't have a good photo unfortunately but it is similar to PurdueZach's photo except my castings are black.

If it helps I am in Australia so maybe they were doing different things.

We have a big regatta in a couple of weeks so I might have a look around at different boats and see what I can see on them

Not seen that before, have I (said in a Yoda voice). Obviously there was a transition period in '95 where the integrated track / new cars were introduced, but not the control system/new castings.

Still doesn't explain why the guy with the 2002 boat has that system.
