Had been neglecting my Hobie Revolution for the past two years and decided it was time to upgrade the fins. Took the boat out to the Lagoon yesterday for a quick test drive..... Brought my fishing poles along and spent the first two hours of the morning doing some fishing. Trout bite was on.

The sun came out by mid morning and the temperature was rising quickly..... Fishing had slowed down and it was time to head back...

Turbo Fin upgrade on the Revolution was a great move. The boat glides well and tracks even better. Can't say how much faster it is at top speed but it sure does move well.

If you haven't already done so, install the sailing rudder. It is as big an improvement for turning as the turbo fins are for propulsion.
