 On the Wire - Feature
You mean once you release your rudders they fall all the way down with a hard "clunk" and drag your rudder tips through the rocks and sand.
The stock Hobie rudder system is made to accommodate a variety of ills: Rudders might not always be the same thickness, aluminum castings might not always be the same size, and the skill of the assembler (your local boat shop), might not always come up to Hobie standards.
Your rudders will lock down with a click and stay down, and since you will always be locking and unlocking your rudders in exactly the same way, your cams will never break (just keep the cam plunger lubricated with something oily, NOT WD-40 because it washes out in the turbulence).

 Raceandhistory.com - African Spirituality
Traditional hymns are sung to the beat of a solitary drum which may be accompanied by a tambourine.
But the "doption" (adoption of the Holy Spirit) takes place during the singing of the "trumpets" when the solitary drumbeat speeds up dramatically, the changing becomes accompanied by syncopated clapping, and the singing grows in fervour and is joined by counterpoint exclamations much like those used by David Rudder and Brother Resistance.
And yet there is a deeper unity, because, as David Rudder sang, "When they feelin the doption/And they show their emotion/Something in the rhythm does show them where they coming from".
