How old is your rigging, there have been a lot of post about having shrouds break, clevis pins failing, ring dings giving out. I would like for everyone to please check your rigging on your boat, if it is in anything but great condition replace it immediately. Think of it as a bad tire on a car, if one is worn out more than likely all of them need to be change, this is also true with sailboat rigging. I know coming from a dealer this sounds like a nice way to make some money, I don't care where you get your rigging as long as it is in good condition so everyone can sail and be safe! As with most Hobie Cat dealers I am not out to make huge amounts of money from this sport, simply provide service when needed to keep this wonderful sport we all have grown to love alive and well.
Have a Hobie day!
