:twisted: As a newbie to Hobie Saling the only fault that stands out to me is the cord being used on the Rudder Controls, surely why could they not use something more robust such as flexible S/Steel which would last a lifetime, when these cords break it seems like one hellva job to replace them, while i am having a whinge one other fault (to me) is the shock cord that holds the Amas on, surely there has to be a better way of connection
don't think their are problems with either of those hobie parts. The shock cord is great and easy to use, mine seems to stretch a little bit to much on the front of one of the amas, so when your in heavy weather it can pull down a little bit but its not a drama. I haven't heard anyone complain about the rudder lines breaking, the only problem with the rudder was weak rudder pins which has since been corrected. Now that tramps are available there are whispers of hobie changing the tiller to allow the use of a hiking pole.
