Went hoopin for Lobsters for the first time to weeks ago and developed a serious leak. I was pump out @ 1" of water every 30 min from inside the hull. The next day after skunkin out I brought the REVO back to XTREAMLINE Sports in San Pedro. Greg water tested it and found a double leak !!!

The plastic had cracked under the cams that lock in the mirage drive. Basically it started from the threads that hold the 3-4 in stainless steel bolts that hold the cams down.

Unfortunately most of Hobie's staff was off on work in Fiji, must be nice
:D

Needless to say Hobie sent a replacement REVO, it took 2 weeks, although the Hobie HQ is only like 60-90 minutes away. I think that my delivery was based on their delivery schedule to the Los Angeles area. I think it was totally appropriate.

Will be doing sea trials with some fishing monday morning. Thanks HOBIE and XTREAMLINE , you guys rock !!!!!!!

Unfortunately not really
The black plastic cams covered it.

We actually had to do an inverted water test to find it
