    The install was a disappointment. Hobie seems to believe that all of their boats come with a rear hatch... they don't. I had to discard useless pieces and make a run to the hardware store to get well nuts to complete the install. Besides the install, I have been very impressed with the trolley. Movement is fluid and it held strong in 20mph gust today.

    I have a couple of beefs with this package, although I don't think they detract from its function or quality (which are both good). I have a 2005 Quest which has the single paddle retainer, so I needed to use the eyelets included with the kit. My boat doesn't have an aft hatch cover, so I had to use well nuts for rear block. The kit only included two well nuts, but now I needed four ( I couldn't get my arm through the midship hatch to use the washer/nylock arrangement for the eyelets. Throwing in a couple more wellnuts would probably be a good idea. The second issue I ran into was driling out the rear block to accept the 3/16" bolts (the instructions have you do this if you wind up using wellnuts for either block). When I tested the fit of the bolt after drilling it, it was snug, and when I pulled sharply, the outer cover of the block separated from the inner cover, and a fine spray of itty bitty polymer ball bearings went everywhere. While it is fantastic that you can open the block in this way to service the bearings, I sure wish there was a snap clip or something that would prevent it from happening accidentally (or maybe wrap a piece of tape around it so that its obvious that the block can be separated). I think I'm still short a few bearings :) It would also be handy if Hobie added a cleat to the kit! All that being said, the quality of the components and instructions is very high. I suspect that owners of newer boats will have fewer issues, but if you have a previous generation Hobie, add a few extra wellnuts and stainless bolts to your order, just in case!

    I installed this kit on my 2008 Wilderness Systems Tarpon 160. The pulleys were put 10-12 from bow and stern, on top edge of the deck. This is a huge improvement compared to my last anchor trolley setup that was installed from rear grab handle to the middle of the boat. I used wire coat hanger, tape and some extended wrenches that I cut and welded together to get the nut and bolt fasteners to attach the pulley at the bow. My one issue is that the rope included greatly changes in length wet vs. dry. Example: The trolley line is very tight when parked on my car roof and then slack once I get it wet on the water. I may change the rope out for something with less variability. Great kit.

    A bit pricey but works perfect as long as you take your time during installation. Lets you concentrate on fishing while placing your yak in the best position relative to the current.
