My Kayak mate has wanted an AI since seeing mine and recently scored a near-new one at a bargain price so it's double the fun!

I'm in the Red "Hobie Wan" and Ray is sailing, "HOBO".

Looks like it was a fun run :D

It's always great to have company when out sailing.

Thanks John, I have been Sailing alone since 2007 so it's a real buzz.

My friend is a master wooden kayak builder, but even he coudnt resist the AI even if it is what he calls, "Tupperware".

Couldn't agree more Max, "racing" another Island (or more) is much more fun than sailing solo, and I have been known to discretely stick one leg over the side if necessary to keep the "racing" close. I did that for a time while a friend got more experience with his AI, but now I don't dare. Whenever I think I have him beat, I look over the other shoulder and he is right there! LOL

I don't have that problem because Jabba is insistent that he wins every time and to get a quiet life I don't argue!

Tony, Do you know how to Embed a Youtube video on this forum?
I can only get the URL to show, no mini-screen but on the Oz forum it happens automatically?

Copy the URL and paste into the thread using the "youtube" button, rather than the "Img" or the "URL" buttons.
