Being the owner on a new china made Pegasus I have to ask you all something . How difficult is it for you all to rig your oc's ? Mine is a unbelieveable to rig and while I can get it together with some effort its unbelieveable how difficult it is to get apart and has actually forced some new owners to already sell theirs .
I have tried different ways and thought I got it to a point where I could live with it only to try to unrig the next time and it wouldn't come apart .I even had others try it and they thought it was unbelieveable and figured we were going to damage the hull or ama if we tried any harder .We were told to take 200 grit sandpaper and sand the iako tubes down inside but we left it to the distributor only to have our oc1's come back w/ the paint damaged and still have the same problem.... now they are scrambling to find some to try to repair the paint but the blends show ........ugh !
Its not something I expected w/ a brand new oc1 and the sanding did make the tubes slide in easier into the hull by themselves but try to attach the ama and it becomes a nitemare .Its like the iako's are not bent correct and when you try to attach the front hole first ( forget even consdering trying the rear first) you have to use the ama as leverage and swing the back towards the hull and then try to twist the bottom on the back of the ama inward to try to get the iako to slide down and you actually have to lean on the iako with your chest and pull up hard on the bottom of the ama ........something tells me it shouldn't be like this .
To get it apart you have to push down hard on the rear and then go forward and move the front out just a little (if it will move at all ) and go back to the rear and push down extremely hard again and pray that it will let go and if it doesn't just step back take a deep breath ...pull yourself together and try again in a few,lol.By this time everyone else is gone and your praying the crackling sound isn't doing much damage
any suggestions would be appriciated as everyone seems afraid to touch it for fear of further damage ...sigh
