Hello - I recently replaced the rudder lines on my 16' Mirage adventure. I used the universal kit for the Mirage but the guide tubes are much shorter and the spectra line is making contact with the inside of the hull. Should I be concerned that will cause premature wear from rubbing over time?

Should I have gotten the kit for the AI/TI instead since this is a 16' boat? It looks like that kit has longer guide tubes.

Appreciate your insight.

Thanks,

Kevin

Thanks Matt - I would say Hobie should add that exception for 16' boats to the description of the "HOBIE LINE KIT MIRAGE RUDDER UNIVERSAL" as I spent a hundred bucks on it and now I'll need to get the AI/TI kit which does not have any mention in the description that it works on certain older Mirage models.

Cannot find this part anywhere. Out of stock from all usual sellers online.

Does anyone have one they would sell or can recommend where I can find one?
