1. Looking seriously at this boat vs. an Outback, would anyone with experience on the water recommend turbo fins vs. the standard GT. Would there be an appreciable increase in speed, performance?

2. This is more for Matt, does the addition of the Square hatch negate the warranty? I love the tackle management system and really can keep nearly all my gear only in that space. I then only use a few pack of soft plastics and a few additional topwater lures, etc.

I am going to check out the Compass Owners Facebook page for more customization ideas.. TIA

Yes on the Turbo fins. Faster and with a slower cadence.

No on the warranty being voided. The hatch is recommended by us. Any work to install that or another accessory which causes an issue could limit warranty on that area, but the warranty would still be active.

Matt, does that mean that you recommend the dealers to do that work then? I am more than capable of doing that work, but would not want to void any portion of the warranty. Thanks so much!

Cdcraw550 - I do not believe that if you install the rectangular hatch yourself that it will affect your warranty if installed correctly. Hobie has a YouTube video for folks to use as a guide for installing the rectangular hatch and moving the circular round hatch to the front deck. Did mine myself. Easy to do and a perfect installation...lol! I posted pictures on the Hobie Compass Owners Facebook page. :wink:

Just my thoughts...
