I went and bought a sail, sailing rudder, furler kit, and most importantly an AMA kit from Sunstate Hobie. When I got home and tried to install the AMA kit, the side arms that plug into the center tube are VERY difficult to get in. It appears that someone has previously tried to do so (e.g. I have a second hand kit...) as there are significant scuff marks.
The dealer is telling me this is normal and the plastic ends of the arms often require sanding to make them fit, is that true? Did yours require any sanding?
