I have seen many Hobies bite the dust from the Delam issue. Even after the fix there is always a doubt in the back of your mind. A real eye opener is to see how thin a hobie deck really is.
The only body part allowed to touch my hulls is the butt the larger the better in order to even out point loads. This Former Hobie Admiral gets uptite when people walk or even worse jump on the top of the hulls. I do allow well trained crew members to walk on the area where the top and sides of the hull meet.
The best delam work is done when the area is small.
Former Hobie Admiral Gary and the huge butt mentioned above is a JOKE
I allow all sizes of butts to sit on my cats
