Did everyone look on their hatch covers? At least here, Hobie includes a spare rudder pin in the rear hatch cover.
Nice video! But you need to build a sprayskirt to tame that spray, wow!
What a way to go to the local pub!
No pins under our hatch covers unfortunately, the yellow AIs are 2008's and Russ's red job is a 2009. I did actually have a spare pin, but I think I gave it to Russ, he claims I did'nt - who knows ! But the real issue is steel/brass or plastic. My original pin went about a year ago, I was going through the harbour entrance shown in the last video in really bad seas, then suddenly I lost all steering, & was being forced onto the breakwater. I used my paddles to steer by and was able to sail to Weymouth harbour - which was where I got a steel pin from a chandlers & was then able to sail back - but it was quite a hairy experience.
As for sprayskirts - we like the spray
Not just the pub, we also get fish and chips from the chippy next door - which go down beautifully with a pint
