Hobie outback cracking
I have been thinking about getting one of these too. I did just receive this note about them.
Hobie Outback and Adventure owners should be aware that there have been some issues with cracks in the drive area of these kayaks. Hobie has done a great job replacing these cracked hulls and designing a fix kit that prevents the crack from happening. Hobie has extended the warranty coverage on these kayaks to 4 years from 2 with 100% coverage. Affected serial numbers are A3753 through F2853 or an Adventure with serial numbers D0001 through D1875 Contact the place you bought it so they can forward the info on to Hobie.
