I upgraded my AI when the new rudder first came out. To keep the hatch clear I used a combination of new and old lines. I kept some of the old tubes because they are longer. Hardest part is to tie the knots under the deck. Hobie uses a special knot to attach the lines. One end of the line is a loop. This loop is folded over to form a double loop. The other line has a figure eight knot. This knot gets slipped through the double loop and tightened. I remember there was something about the port side of the hatch. I had to make up the line aft of the hatch so I cut a short tube as a slide around the hatch. Stays in place with some electrical tape...
