I haven't heard anything yet on the cable tendon break. The "Worlds" finish tomorrow so I guess things will be back to normal next week.
Meantime I've been busy on V2 of the modified tiller knob which is much more compact.
I'd like to see Hobie come up with a redesigned knob assembly so that it takes a standard tiller extension universal/tendon.
Something like (though obviously much better than) this:
The universal on the left is a Riley and on the right is a Ronstan
So, Hobie engineers, how about it?
Do-able do you think?
