Thanks for the info Matt!
I thought that might be the case re: a stronger material like the V-Brace socket screw. I guess there's not much more more you could do with the existing molded in brass fitting, unless you could tap it to get a larger diameter screw in.
Would this be possible?
Is there much "meat" left around the existing tapped holes?
A pic of the molded in brass fitting before its molded in would be great!
I read both Hobie Forums every couple of days...I do not remember seeing anything about the V-Brace Screw replacement? If so, the mention (notice) must have been short-lived. I own a 2010 TI.
Were TI owners supposed to replace the V-Brace Screw (bolt)? My dealer has never mentioned a 'problem' with the screw.
