The Hobie Kayak Sail Furler Kit is going to make sailing a whole lot more simple. Instead of rolling up your sail by hand, this easy-to-install rigging kit can be added to any Mirage kayak sail kit. Kit comes complete with all the hardware you will need and installation is simple. See the Instructions on the Resources tab.
Another quality product from Hobie. Simplifies furling the sail on the kayaks. A must needed accessory finally available. Do check the fairlead location before drilling to make sure your pedals do not hit the lines coming from the mast while pedaling. Great installation tips available on Hobie Kayak Sailing forum. There are adjustments to be made depending on model of kayak. Instruction pages were not in order so you have to flip the pages around.
Components and ease of use super. I cannot understand why, when one of the furler balls was discovered to be facing the wrong direction and on the wrong side of the knot, why Hobie didn't notify distributers of the flaw and fix that was mentioned on the forum. Some inconsistent QC and communication.
Finely Got out on the lake yesterday to use the furling for the first time. It worked great. Installation was easy, I did put a light coat of plumbers silicon on the end of the mask so it would turn easier. Something I has been thinking of building until Hobie came out with this item.
easy to install and seems to work fine in the garage, hope to give a true test when the ice melts off the lake!
