Reduce mast compression by 66%! The Aussie Jib Halyard Kit for the Hobie® 16 allows easier tacking, better mast rotation and consistent mast bend! Use with existing lower forestay assembly. The “fail-safe” pigtail keeps block failure from resulting in de-masting. A similar system is stock on new Hobie® 16’s. Complete kit includes everything you need: hardware with all Harken blocks, 70′ of prestretched line, zippered pouch and instructions. Racing class legal. Compare to Hobie Cat® item #80660000.
This kit will upgrade a classic jib halyard system to a the “Aussie Halyard” system. It utilizes the classic halyard: Murrays PN: 02-0244-00. If you already have an Aussie pigtail you can call in for a kit without the pigtail, or upgrade to the Aussie Forestay.
