I am at Camp Hi-Sierra in California where one of the Hobie Bravos is down with a broken A-Frame.
Jeremy (Surf City) has the A-Frame on Order to direct ship to camp here.
The problem is during the wind storm that the front A-Frame support pulled out of the boat and broke out part of the anchor nut from the boat.
I could glue part of it but I dont think it would be strong enough to hold.
Is there a plate that could reinforce the base of this or an alternative?
I am thinking of taking a rudder connector and longer bolt and then drilling sideways and bolting through the A-Frame support base
Matt - has there been any problems with the front support pulling the base support "plug" out of the boat and is there anyone who has a way to repair this?
This puts one boat down for the youth for the boy scout program so I am trying to get this back into service ASAP.
Thanks for your help
