Of course the AI can't be all things to all people but I think Hobie gets excellent feedback via this forum as regards innovative ways that the AI could be accessorized.

I'd probably buy anything Hobie or a third party produced that increased speed or any other area of performance. Its a great, quirky little boat. Let's make it a faster great, quirky little boat.

This is the climate we live in.Legalities and such. Hopefully everyone will lighten up and take constructive criticism to heart.

I`d rather be on an Outback/A. Island etc, than any Sea Kayak in any seas anywhere under any conditions.
