If you're concerned about potential damage, you could always reinforce the peg recesses prior to the mod - a suitably-sized plastic cap (20 or 25mm PVC end-cap?) and a massive wadge of epoxy bunged over them should give you peace of mind...

Cheers,

Mike.

Great - a conversion kit.

That makes it easy for anyone to decide how to upgrade now :)

So am I right in thinking that Hobie have released a genuine upgrade kit to enable anyone to upgrade?? From what I can gather the kit includes the pvc caps to reinforce the seat holes.
I have had some pvc electrical caps stored away for years - just in case I ever needed them so I will proceed with this regardless.
Thanks guys for the info and advice :) :wink:
