Default Pitot system - odd event

The glider is a glasflugel 304 (original version, 1980).
Pitot is on vertical fin, static port on side of boom about 3/4 toward tail.

Two places where the pitot tube could possibly get pinched
and transmit a shock to instruments:
- under the seat (hard landing, rolling over bump, heavy pilot)
- hinge-up panel (check tubing routing in this area carefully)

Let us know what you find!
See ya, Dave "YO"
