  1. V3.5 repairs and restoration

    You can restrain your second tiller with electrical conduit clips. They have 25 mm and 32 mm $0.84 a pair. One goes over your tiller bar with the other sitting on top to retain the tiller extension. They have existing holes for fixing . Works a treat for under a $1 if this isn't clear let me know and I'll post a photo on the weekend. my boat also came with twin extendable tiller extensions and it was a pain in the arse until i put on the clips.

  6. More advice for first timer

    Should the Downhaul rope pass over the gooseneck and back down to the cleat or thru the eyelet in the sail ? Also do Hobie 14 s have boom vangs as mine has the fittings to mount one but no vang came with the boat? I have an old paper tiger one I can fit but is it needed.? sorry if the questions are basic but everyone has to start somewhere.
  7. More advice for first timer

    Boat will be based in Blairgowrie in the Mornington peninsula. im a windsurfer and am looking for something to get me on the water for s bit of fun in the 15 knots and under days. picked up some new parts from sl Hobie today, very helpful and everything in stock , not bad for a 30-40 year old boat to still have parts easily available
  8. More advice for first timer

    Ok fixed. Previous owner had converted to a rope halyard because when he fitted the mast float he bolted the top two holes thus preventing the swage from passing through the mast top. i have managed to reverse the halyard back to original via the fix on another thread ( very clever idea) so next question is four pop rivets enough for the float ? (Seems pretty solid) 
  9. The previous owner had reversed the halyard from the normal position. So that the swage that normally locks the sail in is at the mast base. The halyard is fairly heavy duty but sail is only really held up by the cleat. Is this a common change  and is it safe? I looked at reversing it but cannot  see how to do it without removing the masttop. Help!!

  14. Windrush help please

    Thanks for all your help, Boat had fairly large repair on top of hull (rhs rear) Looks like beam had pulled out of hull at some stage. I could not see any bulkheads and hulls had two layers of horizontal poly foam glassed to side walls ( which had come off) so useless. I'll keep looking for a good one as my kids are growing up and Might be able to find time to race at local clubs again! Again thanks for the advice and help!
  15. Windrush help please

    Thanks Quinn I'm driving down today to check it out, it's sloop rigged with trapeze, I hope the photos match the boat( I've looked at some real piles of crap in the last 6 weeks) When all these old boats die what is there to replace affordable fun durable family boats ( that can also be raced) Cheers
