I've got a Hobie 16 that I've been restoring and was hoping for some advice on the jib.
There are small tears by jib batten ends where the battens were pushed through. What is the best course of repair? Sail tape and hand stitch over? Ideas?
Should this be tied or shackled? Parts diagram shows Hobie part 11220000, a 3/16" D shackle.
How much tension here?
Does Hobie part 22240000 include rivets? What do I use to set them (do I need a die or just a hammer and anvil?)
Anyone have recommendation for these grommets? Many of them are falling out.
Thanks in advance.
