Korea must be an interesting place to sail.

Loss of rudder control may be your sail over powering the rudder. I assume that is the case since the issue is sometimes.
If you have the original rudder please consider installing the larger sailing rudder or you can reduce the amount of sail when rudder control is lost.

For missing parts contact your Hobie dealer they are really helpful.

And, Welcome!!!! I do believe you are the first to post from the land of the morning calm.

Do you have the up/down rudder controls that use lines? T handles? If not... you need that upgrade. The rudder down line can be cleated (locked) down. If you have lines... use the cleat to hold the rudder down. Next is the "balanced" rudder as shown in the tech notes:


# 81397001 "Balanced" Large sailing rudder for Twist-n-Stow
Available at no charge for all AIs produced before this became standard this spring. Hobie AI production / shipping included this rudder since mid-May 2007.
