I recently saw that there is a conversion to put Nacra Boards in the Tiger with a sleeve inserted in the well. I guess the people loking for the extra 18 cm of board are finding ways to do this.
So if i want the longer boards then I have to go outside Hobie to do it. Is there any chance of Hobie increasing the Tiger board length? What about a pull up strap on the port board? I have sen these on the Marstrom boards that Meesha runs and some caps have them.
Any chance for a nice board from Hobie or should I buy from another manufacturer? AHPC, NACRA, MARSTROM, VECTORWORKS, ECT.?

What's the problem with the standard boards - don't they get in the way enough? :D

I think Vectorworks is/was working on longer carbon board for the Tiger.
