My rudder line broke inside the hull. I pull from both ends and am unable to pull the line out. Does anyone have a video or description on how to totally replace a broken rudder line? I think the stearing lines are ok, but just need some adjustment as have stretched out.

It depends on what broke and where. If you are not sure what broke and where to connect it, I recommend you take it back to your Hobie dealer and let them fix it, especially if it is still under warrantee.

We have been having some burrs on the little loop of stainless at the bottom of the rudder mount fitting. The line passes over this and could get frayed. A little attention there can prevent the problem. Something the factory has already been doing.
