Hey,

On an excursion this morning, the steel spines on one of my "Flipper-Flops" (mirage drives) poked through the tips of the rubber turbo fins. We hit a gravel bed.

Can I buy replacement rubber fins without buying the steel bars? And how much will that set me back?

Thanks

Replacement fins are available from any Hobie dealer - part # 81192001, they are $29.99ea

Usually you can just put the mast back into the fin - and keep using them - not a catastrophe really... do a search on the forum, this has been discussed to death already

Rest the fins and plug the holes with GOOP. I think they make a specialty Mirage Drive Fin GOOP now, to go along with the Marine, Shoe, Plumbers and Household types.

Seriously, use GOOP. It's all the same product and it'll plug the holes just fine.
