When you get your Hobie parts, the best thing to do is take them over to your local irrigation supply or hardware store where you can find a large variety of PVC parts and try fitting various pieces together. You may have to sand or fill here and there, but you should be able to find all the plastic parts you need.

I've been able to use the mainsheet and wind as an unfurler to keep things simple. You can always add the unfurler later if your local conditions dictate a more positive positioning. 8)

I've just discovered that the 3m glue is unavailable to individuals in Italy and that I can't have it sent from the Uk as it's flammable. No luck with Devcon plastic weld either.

Stringy, am I right in thinking you used pvc cement to glue the plastic bits to each other, in conjunction with your bolt and hose clip solution for attaching the mast to the plastic bits?

(Still waiting for my AI to arrive)

No glue at all Simon. The bits are a press fit held together by the bolt and hose clamp on the end of the mast tube.

Latest hold up: apparently Hobie Europe can't ship the spare AI furling drums and rear Akas I asked for as part of my order (I plan to use the cut down akas as mini hiking planks). I've declined to take delivery of my AI until the order is complete (hoping that might speed things up a bit.)
