If you ask nice at Hobie they will give you or sell you a new guedoen that is much better made for the TI and new rudder system. it fits better and compensates for the bit of bulge at the mounting points. it is not the compromise design they had for the old twist and stow rudder. This also gets a tightness check every pre sail . Has not come loose in a year. Look at a new boat to see the difference.


Any pics of the new gudgeon?

Brendan mentioned that it was possible to replace the bolts with the larger, stronger bolt.


Any more info available on this?

FYI, Steve's gudgeon snapped off last week while sailing the flat waters of our local river. It did not break because of anything "extreme". It broke simply of stress and fatigue. These failures are of great concern to many of us.

I ditto Stringy's request for more info and pictures of the new upgraded gudgeon for the TI.
