Interesting, still waiting to get my used 2012 PA14 wet. Wonder if Hobie incorporated this in their latest model?

I installed the rudder BOA in my 2013 PA-14 several years ago too. It really takes the "slop" out of the twin tillers.......you will find the BOA will need to be snugged up when the hull is cold, but loosened up when it becomes warmer....the hull expands a tad and places extra, unnecessary internal tension on all of the hardware unless you loosen the BOA.

Lastly, I always relax the BOA tension once I have loaded my PA on the trailer and drop the rudder as there is no need to place any strain on the internal pulley blocks/sheaves.

The BOA was made standard in the 2014 model year PA-14
