I picked up a Hobie 16 that has no rudders or tiller. At the online shops I see a bunch of rudder and tiller parts but it's not obvious everything I need if I'm entirely missing rudders and tiller.

I got these two boats from a government auction from a local town that was selling them.

One is a 2007 - CCMB9246E707 is the serial number.

The other is 1982 - CCMQ5580M82E sn.

They only had 1 rudder/tiller assembly and weren't sure what boat it was for. It's not obvious to me how to connect the rudders to the boat. It seems I am missing some kind of pin. Should I order some of these? - https://www.murrays.com/product/01-2269/

With those pins will these rudders work in either boat?

The rudders and tillers you have belong to the 80s boat.

Murray's is not an authorized Hobie dealer, don't buy from them.

For the parts you need for the 2007, page 51 of this is your friend - https://media.hobie.com/digital_assets/ ... mzJJp3.pdf

Page 18 of the assembly manual shows you how to attach the rudders - https://media.hobie.com/digital_assets/ ... Manual.pdf

Agreed, rudders look like they're from different boats, (color) but from the older cat.
I disagree with the advice of not using Murray's. They have been outstanding with the personal attention and assistance in helping me rebuild two different older cats. However, always do your own research as well.
A you-tuber Joe Bennett site called Joyrider has lots of videos, some quite detailed on rebuilding and tuning rudder assemblies for the H16. I rebuilt my rudder assemblies with full rebuild, choosing what kind of rudder pin, ( steel, fiberglass, nylon ) new cams, delrin screws, attachment to the hull, and tuning for best sailing performance, the works watching his vids.
Hobie has some good vids as well, I'm just not as online savvy to find all of the ones I want as easily as others.
Definitely check out an exploded diagram of parts for full boat assembly to give yourself and idea of what to look for. Then go on parts search.

I think the choice between a tiller and a rudder largely depends on the type of boat you have. Smaller vessels often opt for tiller steering due to its simplicity and affordability. In contrast, larger boats typically utilize rudders for their stability and precision.
