Does anyone own or could comment about the Treadwell Topper tent for a Hobie 16?

Thanks

I did a quick google search on it and nothing came up.

Where did you hear about it? Can you provide some pictures?

Right, I saw it on Craig's list but they only have a photo in the bag, not out and set up. That's what I was hoping someone had.
These are what was in the ad:

Damn...that thing has gotta be a b*#ch to tack! :lol: Seriously though, what advantage is there to pitching a tent on top of the boat versus in the sand. Seems like a gimmick. I guess you could pee through the mesh and not have to leave the tent.

I think I would prefer it. It has to be more comfortable than a rocky shore, and it keeps you up and away from the creepy crawlies. Besides, anyone can go tent camping, how many can say they spent the night on thier Hobie?!

I just received that tent designed to fit on a Hobie 16 and I am impressed.
I will try it out this spring and posts some photos. :D

Let us know if there is any info with it as to where the tent could be purchased new.

Thanks,
