79503121 BASE - SPINNAKER MAST ROTATOR ($5.00 / USD USA 11-2017)

Will be on all new kits soon.


Geat news Matt!
Any pics of this new device?
Can it be ordered from Hobie Europe?

This might save me some work on making my own extension. I just got the Carbon tubes delivered but I have another good use for theese if I can solve the batten issue with your upgrade.

All the best/
Gustav

Matt, I ordered the mast extender base on the part number you listed. It came in today but it was nothing more than the old spinnaker mast topper. The distributor double checked the order number and it matched the part number you listed.. Can you double check that part number and let us know if there is an error. What should the extender look like? Maybe there is just a suttle difference in cup size/height?

Greg

Matt I compared parts. The mast rotater I got was exactly the same as the old rotater. Hobie must still be shipping the old mast rotaters out when you try to order the new one. Matt, should we use a different part than the one you gave us?

It is certainly possible they have mixed the stock. This is a new SKU, so odd.

Have your dealer contact our parts department again.

Hello Matt!
Any pics available on the new mast tip rotator? I have some dificulties to understand what has been changed in the new kit.

Thanks Matt. Yes there must have been a mixup. This is not what they sent me.

Nice fix.
