One advantage is that you can swap the steering lines and get the tiller working the same way as on a tiller steered sailing boat. I will do that as I have used such tillers for the last 50 years.

Matt,
it looks like the new rudder is just what the doctor ordered. Any chance registered owners who actively follow this forum could ship first :?: Seriously what criteria is used to determining the shipping sequence?

No way to cross reference active forum users, let alone... that does not make someone more eligible for the upgrade. We simply have a large list and have to work through it.

Matt,
My first post as a new member. The instructions (video) were right on! I had no problem installing the rudder upgrade. Can't wait to try it out. Only problems I am having is that the gear bucket in the rear hatch can't be used anymore and the cables seem to rub the underneath of the hatch. Will this eventually cause the tiller and up/down cables to break? I hope there will be some type of fix for this.

hmm....I bought from a dealer in Florida, but he shipped it to me here in the Turks and Caicos Islands. So I have no idea whether or not I am 'registered' anywhere.

Is there some way to access Hobie's customer data base to determine whether or not my TI is registered?

What serial number?

Will ship to your dealer if not registered... and likely since you are off shore. Contact them with any updated shipping info. Should be shipped within the next month.

My serial number is HCCP1154K011 . Can you tell me if I am registered? And if not, what I need to do. Thank you very much.

I emailed the dealer to ask if they registered the boat to me, or what I need to do to get my rudder update....No reply about that yet. They just replied that the guy who sold us the boat is away from the office this week. Arghhhhh!

I am NOT a disciple of delayed gratification. Of course very few of us are.

Hey we use our boat a lot here. And it's all offshore. And there is no Coast Guard to save us. A broken rudder, in our case, could mean drifting toward the Bahamas' Gt. Inagua Island. which could take a few days.

The boat is registered and notes a PO box address in BWI. Order was already in the system, so should ship soon. Direct to you.

Oh, Cool!

Is there any conceivable way to get it shipped UPS instead of via US mail? There's about a 50% chance of it getting to me via mail. No mail delivery here. We typically receive Christmas cards in March...

We would happily pay the freight for UPS. Just call up UPS and tell them you got a pickup and then ship it freight collect. Easy beans. We get lots of stuff that way. They get stuff here about a day or two faster than even Fed Ex...

The mail people won't even start looking for it until several weeks after you start bugging them that it never made it.

We will try. We can't normally ship UPS to a PO box.

WI or BWI?

Oh, no UPS won't deliver to the post office here. You'll need the street address.

Which has only existed for about a year now. We even named the road.

I'll PM you the right one.
