Yes, he ordered red. If you want to discuss it with him, the owner is Bruce Damon. The store is Nomad Ventures. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
and he should be on the Hobie dealer locator for Escondido (phone # etc.). He has more than one store so e-mail would probably be best. If you come down, we'll have to go out on the lake while you're here. With your speed, we'll probably tour the whole lake in 15 minutes!! We can take my Tandem so you won't leave me in the dust!
Sounds like your friend is a real trooper, and I'm sure he appreciates you including him. We have a Hobie amputee here and he manages pretty well with his Outback.
I've been up to 10.7 (GPS) on a boat wake and the Turbofins were still providing thrust. Matt indicated he had exceeded Turbofin speed, so I'm guessing the AI can push beyond that by a fair margin with a decent wind. Once you get to planing speed, it's getting a second "wind" so to speak. From what I understand, it takes a little technique though.
