I think we have seen that vid before, but it is definitely worth a second look. Great!

Getting back to the purpose of this thread, I've had a slight change of heart. I certainly think that Hobie should modify the bow of their AIs (& TIs) to better deflect waves. Also, a properly modified bow could reduce diving and cutting through waves--that deficiency was my main complaint several years ago. Of course, Hobie could also modify the amas to reduce cutting/diving. With the advent (construction) of my expedition hakas (http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=7276&start=240) and re-distribution of weight, which had been in the hull, out to my hakas, diving and wave-cutting has been greatly reduced. When I'm camping, it has not been much of a problem since I started using hakas.
