In short if somebody buys a hobie and uses it once a year their good. :laugh: 

In all seriousness this reminds me of the auto industry, some cars make excellent daily drivers, others can only be used as "pleasure vehicles" for a limited amount of miles a year because of the maintenance involved.

I have some insight into auto part failure rates.  This is a broad number, but in general, an 8 year old Chrysler vehicle will have parts failing at about the same rate as a 20 year old Toyota.

Not yet available apparently :laugh: 

And that’s the thing...for whatever faults Hobie has, no one is making a demonstrably “better” pedal kayak. Other brands will have offerings that are a better fit for some people, sure, but they all have their pluses and minuses and as far as I’ve read they all have mechanical failures and weak points.

My 1998 Jeep GC was a giant money pit and everything broke on it. My 2010 4RUNNER is amazing and low cost of ownership. It goes to the shop only every 10K Miles.
