Looking through the forum posts I notice that there appears to have been a change to the rudder. At some point the control cord entry point for the lift/deploy cords appears to have changed. Can anyone at Hobie (Mr. Miller perhaps) confirm this change? and the reason for it?
I suspect it has to do with the added friction on the cords which is exacerbated if the rudder is in any position BUT 0 degrees. Is the modification as simple as the attached images suggest? Is this a recommended change?
