Hobie kayak Twist & Seal hatches have a better seal than earlier types. The lid is hinged so you'll never lose it over the side and because they aren't a threaded style hatch, never seize up inconveniently.
If you feel a need to add stability to your Hobie kayak, you will appreciate the sense of security afforded by the SideKick ama kit. Great for use when sailing, fishing, standing when sight-fishing, shooting photos! The SideKick ama kit is simple, light weight and effective! Free Shipping!
Hobie have developed a furling accessory for standard kayak sails! This allows the same function as sail-furling on Islands. Simply furl (roll) the rail around the mast and un-furl when you are ready to sail. Safely rig and launch with the sail furled, un-furl when ready to sail. Furl or partially furl if the wind gets too strong, furl when returning to the beach / dock.
