Hi Matt,

I got below from Appottomax Virginia dealer. This is not the updates I'm expecting to receive.
What is the purpose of this ? Ill go to outdoor provision raleigh nc tommorrow and see if they have the updates on stock. its only 15 min drive from my house. Appottomax dealer will be a long wait by mail.

That is a Hobie Wave part. Something was mis-shipped along the way.

Matt, a couple of things...

1) Could you please post a photo of the true masthead rotator update part?

2) If my local Hobie importer doesn't order this update, can I get it from you guys direct?

Thanks

We can't ship direct to Australia. Has to come from Hobie Australasia.

Free Island Updates Announced To Dealers Today

We have received enough parts to start offering an AKA Lock update. We have also created a furling line guide that helps to prevent the line from getting stuck around the bearing plate. Both kits are available through warranty at no charge.

Image
79520604 AKA LOCK KIT HINGED HOOK
This kit includes 4 sets of aka spring hooks and the aka bearings they lock to. This creates a more positive lock for the aka into the crossbar that is less affected by part distortion or aka twisting motions. This is standard on all new Islands. Instructions: https://static.hobiecat.com/item_attachments/79520604.pdf


Image
79512101 ISLAND FURLER LINE GUIDE KIT
Keeps the furling line from getting stuck on the bearing plate. Guides the line up onto the drum when you pull on the furling line. This is standard with all new Islands. Instructions: https://static.hobiecat.com/item_attachments/79512101.pdf
