Finally got out in my AI conversion.

Thanks to all who helped me with advice. While playing around I discovered...Instant "Barber Pole". Doesn't require any additional bungie, or whatever.

It's built into the yaku. Just slip the main sheet over the cross member holder.

Caution. This was in a light wind.

Had previous done this with Sidekick slipping sheet under the yaku tips.

Aloha

CONGRATS! on finally getting ALL the parts!
:D
You should post (in between sailing) your thoughts on the conversion, and any new AI changes. In your picture, I see a new paddle holder, and it looks like a bolt connecting the aka to the cross brace instead of a pin.

Happy sailing!

Yeah it's a relief.

Your right on the bolt. See the other thread on the kit.

The rear paddle holder is probably a part you can order. Just requires a slightly longer bolt. The front blade holder is just cloth covered bungie with the ends folded under and screwed in along with a washer. Maybe you can order that too.

Thanks for all your coaching!! :D :D
