After my recent issues with the vantage seat, thought it might be a good idea to have one of the repair kits mentioned in the hobie video on hand. Could one of you hobie dudes share the part number with us? Thanks in advance for your help. :D

The two items that would seem to me, you would want to have as spares are:
1. Back control line, P/N 84507551 @ $4.49 and
2. Bottom control line, P/N 84507561 @ $47.99???? What I sez is with this price as printed in the Summer 2013 parts catalog.
There must be a typo as no nylon line can cost that much....maybe the price is really $4.79???

I wonder if flexible steel cable might work better?

So...why is the back control line $5 and the bottom control line $50??

I sure wish these lines were made out of more durable material

I just bought both control lines for he vantage seat. One was $10.00 and the other was $11.00

I think they cost that much because of Hobie's excessive $5.00 shipping cost on everything
