  1. I'm looking for a 2009+ Hobie Kayak for my son to use. I currently have an Outback and will consider any model, Sport, Revo or another Outback. My budget is $1100.
  2. I just bought a 2018 Hobie Revolution and it came with a 180 drive . I already have another brand new drive so I'm selling this one . Still in the package . $780.00 . Located in Somerville . Stock pictures . My drive is in the package .
  3. Took her out for the first time Friday on my local lake and made this short film for a bit of fun. No fishing, just getting used to the boat and playing around. A few things stood out: 1. paddling was easier than expected. 2. peddling at slower speeds (3 MPH) was effortless, but felt like a was going quite fast. 3. the Vantage CT seat is amazing (glad to note I can alter it whilst afloat). 4. perhaps most of all, I was surprised at the sensitivity of the rudder control to be able to position the boat even when not peddling. 5. seems very stable, and refreshing to be able to access all hatches without feeling tippy. 6. car-topping worked well with new racks, and no real issues at the ramp using rubber mats etc. Overall I'm delighted with this new boat.
  4. Looking to upgrade to a pedal drive kayak this year, trying to avoid paying for brand new. Would also consider other brands (old town, wilderness system). I’m looking for outback or compass if Hobie as anything over 12ft is really going to be hard for me to transport.
  5. As posted I'm trying to install a basic sill that I bought from on the whole be outback, the outback kayak is about 11 years old, it's an excellent perfect condition the previous owner had it stored at the yacht club, if anyone out there has updated information really appreciated, again this is not a whole be sale it is a generic cell that I bought from
  6. Okay. Okay. Let's try to be serious please. I'm sure this is going to spark a fire, but I'm asking anyways. I haven't owned a kayak before and have been looking into purchasing one so I don't have to spend money and time taking the boat out alone. Or at least thats my justification for it. Who knows, maybe I just have a problem spending money on fishing gear... I mean who doesn't? Anyways, I currently have a float tube and have taken it into the ocean a few times, but have figured it's time to upgrade the tube. A fish finder, a bait tank, and some speed will definitely help me produce more than my float tube! I love the hands free aspect of the float tube, which is why I definitely want to go with the Hobie mirage system. I plan on using the kayak in the ocean, bays/harbors, lakes, and rivers. I have done what I believe is adequate research and have come to the conclusion that the best Hobie Mirage Kayak for Open Ocean/Surf Launching is by far the Revo. The PA 12 and PA 14 both look like awesome boats. (I mean kayaks!) But for what I plan on doing it seems very bulky (Climbing hills & putting on top of my car) and seems to have plenty of incidents with flipping in wind and surf. I'm sure this is due to stupidity and newer kayakers.. but let's face it, it happens more than in most other kayaks. If I wasn't using the kayak in the ocean or to surf launch, I don't know why I wouldn't get it. Moving on.. The Outback. This is where I am having trouble deciding. It has basically boiled down to either the Outback or the Revo 13 for me. From what I have seen/read, the Revo 13 trumps over the Outback when it comes to surf launching. I have rented both but can't find a place where I can mess around in the surf with them. I haven't seen too much concrete information on whether or not the outback is better or worse than the Revo 13 in the open ocean with wind and swell though. Basically if I was only doing ocean fishing I should get the Revo 13, and if I was doing half and half I should get the Outback. I will probably be doing about 70% ocean and 30% calm waters. I'm leaning towards the Revo 13, but I would just like to hear everyone else's "opinions" in regard to the Revo 13 vs. Outback...and whether or not the outback would be a better choice for my uses. P.S. The Riddler and barrell I respect both of your opinions and have taken them both into account.. Thank you for your guys enthusiasm for the sport! Please don't fight!
