OK, I want to buy something for my new FX One.

I haven't herard on the forum yet from Hobie Cat about supporting this boat with a parts and price/availability list yet.

Matt M., whats up. Dagger boards, rudders, and all the other spares I would like to have.

Next years cataloge or can we expect maybe online or dealer info sheets?

I'm off to my local dealer for the info and hopefuly it will be available.

Thanks

Hey Mike,

Did you put more prebend in the mast yet?

A lot of the part#'s are the same as the Tiger...rudders, castings (older tiger style), dags, boom, X-bars etc. And if you have a hard time finding Tiger part#'s I believe the Hobie Europe site has them in PDF. To order parts here in the states, just put an F in front of the Euro part#. Did your boat come with the parts diagram? Should have. There are part#'s in there too. and a pretty good breakdown. Also, if you haven't found it yet, there is a good tuning guide on the euro site.

Somewhere I saw an FX tuning seminar offered somewhere. Anyone know where it is?

FX Part guide is also in the Hobie USA support area.

We have many of ther parts on hand. Others may have to be ordered in from France.

Where is the pricing for parts. I realize its hard to keep a constant price on things with exchange rates changing up so much lately, but a rough idea is better than nothing.

Pricing is another story, i think some part numbers have changed since the part diagram was printed.

Hey Jeremy,
Yes I did put more prebend in, or some because I didnt have much at all to start with.
I set the speaders at abiout 2" and tensioned the diamond wires to just over half way down the guide. I do not have a gauge.
This took some of the fullness out of the main. Amazing it became faster in light wind and the middle tell tail started to flow better.
I dont think the middle is going to flow to well untill bigger air, just too much pocket.
In light air I have been using some down haul just to flatten the sail. That seems to have made the 5-7 knot performance inprove. But it does not take the fullness out of the main in the middle.
Looking forward to more days in higher winds this fall. Big air has been in short supply.

Like battens? I had to get lengths of battens and match up tapers, and length. I could get a whole set, but not just the top 3.

[quote="Karl Brogger]Like battens?[/quote]

We don't even carry sets for US product. All are done with "universal" lengths.

Really?! Hmm. Would've thought otherwise. There is part numbers for individual battens in the FX parts guide.

Hey Speedawg,

I saw by your post you are in Idaho.
I have an FX 1 and I am over in Seattle.
I have raced it abit and it saiils great. What kind of onfo are you looking for.

We are hoping to build up a fleet out here in Seattle. So far there was two at a few regattas this year.

Are you planning on sailing races in the Northwest?

Mike
