I replaced the plastic shear bolts on the aka struts with stainless steel because I have read stories of them becoming fatigued and failing even without an impact. I am in the process of building hakas for the red boat at least. Just one on the right side close to the hull for now. Mostly a place to mount gps and compass as well as a place to store the pedal drive and dagger board when not in use.
After a super slow downwind return to launch site the other day I got fired up again with the idea of adding more sail area. Wondering if I could borrow a spinnaker off a 16 foot boat just to try.
Still trying to come up with a mounting frame to place a seat from the Chameleon pedal boat into the Hobie.
