A while back I posted 'VersaTIlity' where i tried to show just how versatile the TI is.
What other craft can be sailed solo, duo or even trio in skinny, sheltered or open waters and in all kinds of conditions, yet makes a great double kayak as well?
With the addition of haka that versatility is increased to cover camping trips, expeditions and even allows sleeping on board.
What a truly versatile craft! 8)

Thanks Stringy. I have your original video on my youtube favorites. It was one of the video's that helped me to make up my mind about getting a TI. I have one ordered and it should be here in the next week or two! I can't wait to get it out on the water! :)

thanks

Thanks for that Ron and congrats on your purchase.
Over the last nearly 5 years the TI has given us some unique experiences and great memories.
I'm sure you'll love it just as much as we do. Maybe even more with those cool upgrades! :wink:

Nice piece. Good fun. Great solo sailing.

You run a tight ship there Stringy. Where's the "loo"? :lol:

Great video, watching your video I see we are not the only ones that have to deal with rough chop on a regular basis.

Yes, your video definitely shows the Tandem versatility, Stringy. Nice job.

Thanks for the comments Nohuhu, Bob, Tony, Keith and frenzy.

Bob, yeah when the wind picks up here so does the chop, especially on the closed waters. I find the open waters/ocean generally a drier ride. Give me a rolling swell over chop any day.

Nohuhu, there are some things that still have to be done on land! :wink:

Great video. I took a guy out yesterday that was used to a higher performance sailboat, but he quickly realized how versatile the TI was and even said "I could do this all day."

Thanks Tom. Yeah there are better sailing craft and there are better kayaks but nothing comes close to the AI/TI as far as versatility. IMHO of course! :wink:
