NOW IS THE TIME to be checking your Hobie’s over to make sure all is in good working order after their winter hibernation. Darren’s H16 ‘Maintenance Check & Servicing List’ Very important to make sure any stay’s that hold the mast up are not kinked or frayed, if so replace before sailing. Quite a few have been working on their rudders recently so important for upwind H16 sailing. Here is a good link to Hobie tuning and servicing, scroll down for rudder tuning http://hobieclass.com/hobie-tuning/ also link off there to Hobie University is very good.
