Hey all, I have put this in the wanted section, but thought it might get a run here also.
I am on the lookout for a pedal Hobie, would like to keep in under $1600.
But realise I might be dreaming. There was an outback that just went for $1600 but I missed it!
Doesn't have to be decked out, just need the yak and a seat really.

Also if anyone has had any problems with the mirage drive I would like to know about it.
All help appreciated.

Good luck Red, they are rare to find at that price mate. Most people spend around $2400 for them new, and there isnt much to wear out or go wrong with them and very few people sell them as they meet all requirements.

They are a great fishing platform, and I would probably buy a 2nd one if I could at that price :)

I know my 2007 Hobie Outback is still looking almost new. I was tempted to sell her and get an outfitter so I could take the missus.... but I am undecided whether to get a 2nd hobie for her :)

They are rare, but it does happen, so worth a try.
There are a couple on ebay at the moment around that, but the price will ramp up.
They both have buy now prices under $2Gs so I'm hopeful.
Just can't afford any more, the $1600 will be stretching it.
I'd love an Outback...
Cheers Roydsy.

Hi mate,
You can try the www.akkf.com.au (http://www.akkf.com.au) website ,there are a few guys that pick up some good hobies used on there for under $2000. I have an outback with the mirage drive, if you wash them when used in salt, give them a spray with Inox and keep the chains adjusted and they will last years. Great yaks the Hobies.
Cheers Mate.

thanks guys I'm a member of about 3 yak sites and I'm checking all of them constantly.
The guys at Sunstate have a couple, but both over $2Gs.
