I have almost completed the refurbishment of an Ebay Hobie 14. On vacation I sailed a Hobie Wave but know nobody who has a Hobie of any description.
I have dry rigged it at home and know everything fits.
When the rudders are lowered, how do you lock them in position ? Should they latch automatically or is there a procedure ?
How should they unlatch ?
Are the plastic latches easy to remove or do you risk breaking the castings when you drive the pins out ?
When they are in the raised position should they latch up positively or do they just rest this way. I don't suppose the Cat can be trailered with the rudders raised ?
Anybody in Fort Myers FL on this Forum ?
Thanks in advance.
