As I looked at all the interesting home-built sailboats on the beach, I could not help thinking that paddling or rowing them would not be fun.
I looked at the AIs that were participating and thought that perhaps it would be fun, if the boats had a bit more room to move about and if they went over waves instead of through them. 300 miles in an AI exceeds my attention span.
I want a different Mirage Drive. One that you pedal from the side, not from in back. Actually, I want two of them. I see a cat ketch like this Core Sound with two Mirage Drive wells and two sideways Mirage Drives.
For most of my life, I did not believe there would be a better way to move a kayak than a good paddle. Ketterman changed that with the Mirage Drive, making the paddle obsolete, an astonishing accomplishment.
We put trolling motors that belong on fishing boats into our kayaks. Why am I the only one who wants to apply the Mirage Drive technology to little sailboats? Am I going to have to do this myself, or is Hobie going to do it? The Bravo Mirage would be supercoool!
