I just installed my fishfinder and I had to remove the foam blocks to run the wires. I know they provide some structural support but I can't remembe where they go though. Can anyone she me a pick of inside the hull?

For future reference in running wiring.....if you use a good old Stanley 1" wide tape measure, you can "fish/pull" the wires without removing the foam flotation blocks. :idea:

I'm dealing with the same issue. PA 14 2012. I'm not sure what happened but all my blocks became dislodged as I was loading and most wound up in the stern. I'd like to make sure the correct blocks are in the right locations as I imagine they provide some support to the hull. I don't want to crack the deck while I'm standing.

Can someone post a diagram of the foam placement. Thanks.

Hobie should be able to send you a diagram of the foam block placement......since it's a pre-2013 model, there were fewer blocks.
I would call Hobie direct and cut to the chase.

Once you do get them where they belong, suggest using Gorilla tape to hold them to the hull so they won't move again. I have done this with my 2013 PA-14 and the blocks are firmly in place.
