After unfolding the boat after a fantastic shake down- I noticed a what appears to be a kink in the housing for the rudder cables.

There is no loss of operation.
The kink resembles a soda straw that has been permanently creased.
My intention is to practice stowing the boat in the bag avoiding this bend point.
Any input would be appreciated.

I posted same/similar issue last year (July 2011) and got no replies. On my i9s, the covering actually split open revealing the hard cable housing. I just put a patch over the area and have had no further issues. I do worry sometimes about possible damage due to folding. Just the other day I notice the scuppers (on the bottom) seems to be getting bent harshly. But, again, so far just worry - no real problems. Enjoy!
