Definitively looks much better on the water now than in the yard that first day! Nice video.

Yep! That's me.

Hit over 10 mph - several times yesterday.

Ron rode in a front for a little bit - he had a nice and wet ride.

Still need to install the tramps and make a spray skirt.

Having a few issues with very tight steering control but I think it is related to repairing the rudder. I have a new one, and will install and hope to improve steering issue.

For anyone that isn't up to sewing a sprayskirt themself, my wife Dee makes them: http://www.kayakingbob.com/sprayskirt-purchase

On your tight steering, try not pulling the 'down' line as tight to see if that helps.

Doing circles round the TI, eh Ron? That's not sporting.

At least you did it with a Hobie sail though. Is that from a Wave or Getaway?

NOHUHU, Must be the editing that made it look like I was circling...actually the Fulmar seems to be faster in 15 knts of wind...I'm a bit surprised given it's heavier 260 lbs and the Hobie Bravo sail is a little smaller than the TI...must be the very different hull shape of the Fulmar...If it only had a Mirage Drive! 8)

Just put in the order. Tell Her Denise said thanks so much (I give her the front seat).

You and Ron should put that pict in the photo contest.

It's my favorite so far.

Larry, think I will order one also.

Reconlon, my tight steering is mostly due to the repairs I made to the top rudder eyelet. I took it apart and sanded it and I think it will be much improved. I have a new rudder assembly ready to go if this does not work.

NOHUHU : I will add the Ron splash bath to the mix.
