If you have a V1 MD180... yes. You can get the V2 upgrade.

We have made a change to MD180 fins, masts and booms to help fin durability and replacement. This is a running change. Kayaks have been shipped with the new fin version. V1 and V2 mast, fin and boom parts are not interchangeable.

The new "V2" version removes the adjustment thumb screw from the clew attachment. The fin adjustment is now a screw at the mast head (Similar to the Eclipse flow fin). The boom is modified to accept the new fin with a simple clevis pin and ring connection.

The "V2" brings us back to a known simple clew attachment which allows tool-less fin removal.

Old version fins, Turbo kits, and booms are no longer available (we have V1 masts). If a V1 fin, or boom needs to be replaced... warranty (with claim) would send a complete update kit, including instructions, at no charge. Be aware that, as before, we are somewhat short on these parts as the factory is using all available parts for production.

Here is a list of the new parts:

Kits for MD180 V1 drives to convert to V2 Std or V2 Turbo:

V2 Update Kits
81501111 MD180 V2 BOOM-MAST-STD FIN KIT
81501112 MD180 V2 BOOM-MAST-TURBO FIN KIT
(Includes two booms, two masts and two fins per kit and instructions.)

I see the part arrived today.

We are closing down our old shipping facility tomorrow and are in the middle of a move to a larger building. This will cause a few more weeks of delay.
