Along with a bunch of other stuff that came with my boat, A piece of rigging that is about 20 feet long, came with it. Pretty much half is rope, and the other half is cable. Where the cable meets the rope , there is a series of beeds on the cable spaced out about 2 inches. And there is a pully on the cable, that i think catches on the beads. Does anyone have any idea what it is? I also have another one but it is broken.
Thank you

Sounds like it might be a discard from another boat, or maybe someones custom rigging?? I've never seen anything like that in the Hobie catalog.

Hi, I recently bought a H14 turbo with a similar line with it. I worked out that it was to help step the mast single-handed and actually replaced the standard front rigging. Mine has a long rope with a block pulley attached and if you pin the mast with the mast stepping set-up, in therory you should be able to raise the mast yourself, while standing at the front of the boat. I tried it on a still day and it did not go too well as you have no control over the mast from swinging from side to side! I don't step the mast that way now!!

The rope is attached to the top of the jib via a pulley.

Well, thats what my one has got... a consideration for you as to what it maybe anyway.

Yes I have seen those aftermarket to "help" to step the mast solo. Good luck
