I have a 2004 with cracks around the starboard hull where the rear cross member exits the hull. I have sent pics to the dealer and Hobie will be sending a new hull for replacement. My question is: What causes this to happen? I bought this boat as a leftover right out of the box from a dealer. One thing that impressed me was the hulls. No need to paint, easy maintenence etc. I have only sailed the boat 4 times and the hull has cracked. This leaves me a little concerned.
On the left hull I also noticed on the middle/main cross member sleeve that the sleeve itself seems to have shifted inboard inside the hull about 1/4 inch or so. Is this something that can be fixed? Are these sleeves supposed to be glued/secured into place?
