Ok, so I am having two issues right now, and I was pretty ticked off this weekend because of them.
I have a 2014 Hobie Outback (or 2015, its the first year they came out with the Vantage Seat). I also have a new 2017 Hobie PA with the 180 Mirage Drive.
1st Issue: The mirage drive on my Outback is slipping forward. Once I place it into the holder and it gets locked in place, I push the pedals and the drive slips forward and the pedals wont come back. I can't replicate this outside of the water.
2nd Issue: The mirage drive on the PA wont fit into my Outback. I actually got it to go in there once but it took ten minutes and then took another 10 minutes trying to get it out. I thought they were supposed to be able to be interchangeable? I know that the new drives for the PA will fit into the new outbacks, but does it fit with the 2014/2015 models?
Needless to say, there I was with a big fishing trip planned and had TWO mirage drives that wouldn't work. Fortunately, a friend was able to lend me a very old mirage drive (like 1st edition, LOL) and that salvaged the day.
Any ideas? Also, anyone on here work on Mirage Drives? I'm in the Metairie area. I need these issues fixed asap.
