Has anybody noticed that their rudder has warped? I've had mine for about 3 weeks, always stored upside down or on its side and always moved by 2 people or using the loading device, never been left it the sun. I noticed yesterday that it was warped, haven't had it on the water to know if it changes anything with the operation though.

The rudder is thin and typically does have a warp right from the mold. Freight damage may make this worse.

It was perfectly straight when I bought it, that's really why it caught my attention.

Seems like most have the issue. Hobie said it was normal when I asked about it. I haven’t seen any performance issues with it and that’s the important part.
