As I was reading the posts on this topic, did I understand one of them correctly and the new Spin-Kit is made only for 2015 Islands or newer? If so, what type of modifications are needed for lets say a 2011 TI model? Thanks. Dom

There is nothing related to the spinnaker kits that make it model year sensitive... They fit all year model Islands.

Good to know. I was told that the AI one was for 2015+ only (by Aus factory) and as such I'd reported that on the SLH website and Vic Isl FB Club, so I best go and retract that. Thanks for clearing that up Matt

My local dealer told me that the TI spin kit will retail for AUS$975 (converts very closely to the US pricing.. well done Hobie!)

One question however.. can I please see a photo of the underneath of the masthead fitting? Is it one piece, or is there some sort of bearing in there to avoid chafing on the top loop of the sail? Inquiring minds need to know! :lol:
