f-One Swing strut inflation hose leaking and then came off
« on: April 01, 2024, 09:11:27 AM »
Heard a hissing from my F-One Swing wing  today and when I got to shore I noticed it was leaking badly at the strut inflation hose on one end.  I tried securing it and it stopped the leak for a few seconds and then but just came off..the other end pulled off easily too.  Did these break off or are they glued on and maybe the glue broke down from hot Caribbean weather over the years? 
Thanks in advance.   Don

Upon further examination on dry land it appears as though both ends of the connection/inflation hose dry rotted. Looks to me like a soft rubber nozzle on either end and both tore cleanly off at the widest part which would fit into the other end. Guess Ill have to bring back to US for a replacement.
