Weirdness when we first got our TI: Pedaling along, turn left, turn tiller left. But sail only and I go into sailor mode and push the tiller in the opposite direction as you would in a sailboat. this only happened a few times at the start but it is weird to be so conditioned. :lol:

I did some work to my AI last season and mistankenly reversed it when re-assemblying.

... that first sail was living in a mirror

Right, the Island steering toggle is more like the wheel in a boat, not a tiller.

However, if you reversed the steering lines you could have it operate like a normal tiller. Wouldn't be hard at all to do.
