Post subject:  comp tip damage question

I purchased a 2008 Hobie 16 a few years ago. I haven't been able to get out much, so, still getting used to it. I had a 1975 Hobie 16. I am new to this comp tip. I have been having a lot of trouble getting the boat to come around. I have been working with the mast rake and of course positioning of my weight. But i notice when i view up the mast that the mast angle changes a few degrees where the comp. tip attaches. is this normal or should the sail track be perfectly straight? The boat has been stored outside since it was new. I see some what i believe are cosmetic surface cracks in it all over. But i also see some chunks out at the joint. Do i need to replace my tip? Hopefully i have attached the pictures! Thanks in advance for the advice! well it looks like i cant add my pictures. faq talks about a way to add pictures. i don't understand those directions. can anybody help?
