Q: How do I put the mast up on a Hobie 16/Hobie 14?

Using a mast step link kit. Make sure you put the pin in the hole that matches your boat. The Hobie 16 hole is the lower one, the Hobie 14 hole is the upper one. Make sure you use the correct hole, as otherwise you can break your mast base and replacing a mast base is a bear of a job!
