Hobie® factory replacement part is the hinge necessary for raising and lowering the mast. To avoid breaking the mast hinge on a Hobie® 18, check proper alignment of holes to allow correct seating of hinge to mast base. It is also important to limit side-to-side travel of the mast when raising/lowering the mast. It’s a good idea to keep a spare mast hinge on hand just in case!
