The first day of our trip was "marked" by the TI's rudder bolt break. That was the "STAR" here in the forum. I would have liked that "the turtle saving" was, but of course most of us are worried about problems, that's probably why "NEWS" are always not really "nice".
The second day was much quieter: eating, resting, sun bathing, swimming and a bit of pedaling and sailing.
I made the mistake of leaving the TI with the cart on. One of the collar clamps looses and cart now is bended (difficult to notice in the video).
I can say now: the TI is between 1 and 2 knots faster than the AI in any situation, but specially with no wind and pedaling as a main power source.
The AKA Bench is a great idea I'm pretty happy with, but combined with the tramps give the sense of a bigger boat, more comfortable if windy



greetings

And up until now, we had never envisioned it as an olympic diving platform. :lol:

Thanks for posting. Very enjoyable video. It's always great to see how others around the world are enjoying what we do.

De-bagging that turtle was a bonus.

I enjoyed watching your video here - and lots of others you have on YouTube :D
The broken rudder bolt is a bit alarming and must have been a bit of a shock :o
However you got it sorted out relatively quickly and managed to continue your adventure. 8)
Look forward to hearing/watching more of your trips and ideas. :wink:
