Currently a Bravo owner, buying a used Wave. Year presently unknown but likely pre-2005/pre-EZ-Lock. If I were guessing I'd put it around 2000-2003 based on what I know. The boat is missing all removable rudder parts... the closest thing to a rudder are the pintles. My questions are:
1 - If the boat was originally non-EZ, should I upgrade to EZ, and if so do I need different pintles?
2 - Is there a "group" part number for a full rudder assembly, or do I need a list of individual parts?
3 - Do rudders or parts thereof from other Hobies fit this boat? Particularly an earlier (1980) Hobie 16?
Thanks in advance for any help!
