Lubricant for hobie drive

3 posts in this topic

Hi everybody, 

I hope you are having a great day now.

What lubricant do you use for your hobie drive? I have corrosion x at home, the red bottle. I plan to use this on the metal parts. The guy who sold me the used hobie told me to simply use WD40 after each trip. 

Thanks and have a nice day

I use PlanetSafe AIM CLP. It's the same stuff Hobie sells as their branded lubricant. No rust or issues in my third year of owning the drive. Yeah, it's expensive, but I'm on the original bottle. You don't need to apply it that often - more important to rinse thoroughly, in my experience.
