I have a new 2012 hull I just received from Hobie via my dealer. The steering is different than on my other boat it is replacing.

I need a schematic on how the steering shaft and steering handle are configured. Does the upper roll pin that holds the steering shaft in place have a bearing surface under it such as a stainless steel washer? The hull was a replacement hull and didn't come with any documentation.

I called the dealer (nice folks) and they suggested that I look on the website but it isn't there. I could call them back and they will call Hobie but it is likely quicker to find out here.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks Matt, but I am looking for info on a 2012 PA14 which has the second generation steering. The attached is for the third generation steering.

I'm told that at one time we used a rubber washer between the roll pin and hull to add friction, have gone without it now.

Okay Matt, thanks.

Via trial and error, I have discovered that if you put anything between the roll pin and the embedded brass fitting/sleeve it raises the tree up on the lower end of the steering shaft where the lines connect and binds the rotation.

So bottom-line, simply let the roll pin ride the brass sleeve and possibly the hull. Mine is working smoothly now.
