I installed a Dalan from  on my Avant. Had to
grind off the  metal tow strap from the Audi. That was the only pain.
Otherwise it fits with no problem. I use mine to tow a 15 ft. Seadoo jet
boat, which is much heavier than that Hobie Cat. I even towed a wood chipper
with it once. Guy says, 'we don't see many people pick up a wood chipper in
an Audi!!'
