Ron, That is a hardware issue... the nut on the end of the tiller has to be right.



Ain't nothing 'right' about me.... Ask anyone... My screws are always loose... I am hoping loose is fast... :D

Noob to this site but an old Idaho Hobie 16, 18sx & 20 sailor.

Matt - are there any Euro sail sets still in stock and if so what colors.

Also - if so - can you PNW guys recommend a shop? To my knowledge we have no Hobie sail dealers here in potatoland.

Thanks!

Received the Euro '11 Main & Jib - they are awesome (and stiff!)

Unfortunately will be down getting a hip replaced next week - hope to have pics at a fall regatta.

Thanks for all the help. :D

OK, it has been the 'lost summer' for sailing. I sailed once in late May, and then again last Monday. :(

I bought the Palma Euro 2013 sails and LOVE THEM!! They look great.

One question, however. I was looking at the jib wire and the clamps that hold the loop intact, and there is some green corrosion forming. Should I be concerned? I only sail in fresh water, but assume these were last used in salt water for the championships, then sat over a year in a box. I was thinking about dipping it in Coke or vinigar to try eating away the corrosion, then rinsing completely. Will that help? Or should I do something else?

Thanks,

I wouldn't worry about it too much - maybe take a stiff bristle brush to it to remove the crud, but I wouldn't try any solvent on them.

Thanks Matt. I won't stress over it then and treat it as cosmetic.
