Helps prevent Turtling. Displaces 59 pounds of water to keep the mast from going turtle (mast staright down). This Hobie mast float will give you the time you need when preparing to right the boat without the worry of going turtle. It also helps prevent damage to your rig and sails that can be caused when the mast head contacts the bottom when capsized.
This streamlined float is shaft mounted to the side of any mast and is easily removed for racing or trailering. This float is contoured and held in alignment with the mast for minimum drag while sailing.
