Hi, what I most need are new pins for the rudders... the sorta real hard white plastic pins (about 8" long) that the rudders hinge on. Dave M.

I have a couple 14s and you really should probably use the aluminium pins instead (if you are not launching in the surf). Those pins were made for breaking away in case you're going backwards in the surf and your rudders hit the bottom. The breaking away ability will save the rest of the boat.
I got the lecture about these when a Hobie dealer saw them on my 14. He said you'll like these fiberglass pins until you 30 yards from the finish and they break.
Hobie dealers everywhere

Download the hobie catalog from the hobie website and order them directly from hobie. They aren't too expensive.
