These are free from Hobie for new Outback owners, that’s a good thing. I’ve patterned and cut a 1/4” closed cell foam pad with 3M backing tape that I think will also work wonders in other models. Cheap and easy to find online.

I think the bigger shame is calling this an Outback, but that’s my personal opine.

Through your dealer. We can ship direct to you, but they need to order.

Awesome Matt! Thanks for the update.

What is the wait time for the gaskets to be shipped? I got my Outback on the 16th of December and the dealer said they had asked for the gasket to be mailed directly to me. That is now a bit over 3 weeks ago (although I understand that there is a week of holidays during that period). Any estimate on how long the wait will be for the gasket to show up?

We had an annual inventory closure the week before, so a real slow down for December. Updated inventory counts are not yet posted, so not sure what we now have on hand. We have a large number to ship, so a few more weeks I would imagine.

Thanks for that info Matt. I will hold onto my horses for a few weeks.

Figured I would update this.

I picked up my hatch seal and installed it on Saturday. After a full day on the water I could see the indentation of the hatch on the newly installed seal when I opened it up to unload. When I got home I ran my hose over the closed hatch, trying hit it with water from every angle, and not a drop in the kayak.

Thanks Hobie!

Wish we could get some accessories and parts here in Australia. Still waiting for the hatch seal (luckily mine is pretty good) and the trailer cradles. I cannot even get an ETA on the cradles.
