Write a review for Hobie Island Conversion Kit
*Please Note: Both colors and patterns are for general reference only. Colors may vary from computer to computer.
A year ago I was in a sporting
goods store looking at Hobie
kayaks. The manager told me about
Adventure Island and gave me a
Hobie catalog. I ended up buying
an Outback, then later a
Revolution. But I always kept
seeing the Adventure Island in my
mind. I sold the Revolution and
bought a used Hobi Adventure with
plans to buy the conversion kit.
My experience with the Hobi
Adventure Island was everything
that I had hoped for and now I
know why it is called "Adventure
Island." I think buying the kayak
and installing the Island kit has
been more enjoyable because I
built it. If I had to make the
choice, I would do it this way
again - the kit is the way to go.
This is a great upgrade. You'll have an up-to-dates AI when you are finished. Some pointers are 1) make sure all parts are included with the kit (I was missing the sailing rudder and instruction sheet), 2) leave the stock mast receiver cover on and center a woodworking compass on it to measure out the new mast cup hole size--this will be a big hole in your kayak so you'll want to measure and cut it carefully, and 3) use the parts diagram from the Hobie catalog to ensure you have the mast cup frame assembled in the proper orientation. When you are done you'll have an exciting new kayaking experience. You should also check with Hobie about the rudder up/down control upgrade to see if that will be included in the package (it's now a free retrofit for all AIs). If you do get this, search the web for user experiences in installing this -- good advice is available for this.
