I was able to finally purchase a Hobie kayak sail this winter when they became available again. However, I called Hobie the other day about the availability of the furler kit for the sail and the lady on the line said they’d been discontinued. I knew they were backordered, but this is not welcome news if indeed it is true. I’ve scanned YouTube on DIY videos using PVC pipe for something temporary. Does anyone have information about the future of the Hobie Kayak furler? The Hobie continuous line kayak furler with mast locked to the kayak seems like a very well thought out solution.

I just bought one over the weekend from my local Hobie dealer in SF Bay Area. Maybe look around online?

I've yet to install it but I hear that it's not as good as the STAR sail furler. Some say that the Hobie one is hard to furl with wind in the sail.
