    Used the factory brackets from Hobie. Took them off the float and mounted them to the Capri mast at the top drilled new holes centered in the bracket. Then I eyeballed the float to the bracket, made some small bends with channel locks and marked the new holes for the float mounts. Removed mounts, drilled new holes, re installed brackets and mast cap. Used silicone on the float screws and mounted it. Done-less than a hour of messing around.

    I will get some pictures later this week.

    Cheers

    I'm looking forward to the pictures. I've been thinking about adding a Baby Bob, but hesitating on the installation
