Broken Hobie Wave Comptip  Bottom

  • Anyone ever fixed a broken Comptip? I can get a Wave with a broken CT. They are 700 to replace the tip alone., yike. Repair seems like a bad idea as sail channel will never be right.. Maybe easier to just buy an extrusion and have a one piece mast.

  • The comptip is just a fiberglass tube and anything fiberglass can be repaired with enough expertise.

    Of course it depends on how it is broken and what you plan to do with the boat.

    I believe I've heard that a Hobie 14 mast will work on a Wave, so that might be an alternative if you can find one.

  • It all depends on the extent of the damage. How exactly is the mast broken? Is the comptip snapped in two pieces? Is it just cracked? Is the damage on the fiberglass section or the plastic luff track?

    I have repaired cracked comptips and damaged luff tracks, so some repairs are possible. If the tip is broken in two pieces, then it is essentially not repairable and needs to be replaced.

  • u can take a hobie 14 mast, cut it shorter and use it... w/o comptip, and remount the mast float... no shortage of beater h14s around with bad hulls.... just another option.

    Rob, can he use the H14 top casting for the Wave?
    Is there a change to the halyard necessary, like a nicopress stop?

  • I will look for a beater Hobie 14 close by. Not surprisingly, not many boats for sale this March in the midst of major blizzard and clean up. Only 74 more "fix up days" til Memorial Day weekend!

  • How about a complete Hobie 14 turbo on a trailer for $500 rather than the wave? There was an H14 turbo
    in western Mass last week for $250 which lasted about 4 hours before someone offered $500 to hold it LOL.

  • I missed out on the $ 250 boat probably by one hour, and the NJ guy ignores emails. It's probably sold too.

  • I thought the mast on the 14 Turbo mast looked like it was bowed significantly...
