Got the Tandem Island today. No owners kit or any paperwork. I'm trying to figure out what is supposed to come with the boat that I may not have. I'm sure it's missing the batten caps, warranty paperwork and assembly manual. I did get two water bottles and one gear bucket. Other than those items, is there anything else I should be looking for? Thanks.

There's a Owners Manual online under the "Support" section. Also a list in the manual of everything that's included.

Tom, I got, in addition to what you listed:
* Manual
* Allen key
* 2 spray deflectors (can fit on rear of Miragedrives but left off as some people have trouble inserting drives with them on)
* 2 "T" handles to convert half a paddle into shorty.+ Caps on battens
* 2 tapered scupper plugs (or shot glasses :lol: )

Congratulations. Waiting to hear what you think of it after trying it out.

With approximately 50% more sail area, I have a pretty good idea what I'm going to think about it!

I got to swap my TI for davew's AI for about 20 minutes last week, and was more struck by the similarities rather than the differences. My impression was greatly affected by moving from my raised TI "captain's chair" to the snug low seating position of the AI, and was surprised to discover my elbows were getting wet (no neanderthal jokes please! :lol: ), and in turn dave remarked about how dryer he was with the extra freeboard of the TI, but sailing side by side, both Islands behaved like twins whatever the wind gave us.

Earlier, in our own Islands, we had a lot of windward work, and davew seemed to be have a slight edge on me; whether this was my 40kg extra weight sitting in the front seat, or his 3 years' experience in his Island I couldn't say, but we are talking about one boat length after a 150 metre tack. Here is the track of most of our all-day sail.
