Default I-Comfort has developed leaks.

My I-Comfort has developed leaks. Last year I had no leaks when it was put away for the winter, and it now had developed a bunch of leaks. When I put it under water, bubbles seem to be leaking through the fabric itself.

I cant see any pinholes where the bubbles are coming out, this is really weird. It hasnt been used all that much. Its only the top side, not the bottom

Has anyone else experienced this? Any fixes?

Same thing happened to me, maybe fishing hooks and the comfort seat don't work together. It is repairable with a "thermarest patch kit". I got mine at campmor. Good luck

I havent sold many of the I's so havent seen that problem but you should contact your dealer and have them file a claim with Hobie. If its less then two years old, its fully warrantied if its older they will still do something to take care of it.

Well that would have been KFS. Ha ha.

Anyway I had gotten it replaced thru another dealer, at Hobies suggestion. Only cost me one way shipping!

I love a company that stands behind it's products.
