Sorry to see you go.
We hope the 31 footer works out for you.
May be a bit drier than the AI regardless of the dodgers and raised seat.

Will miss Paul and his videos.

The old Dog would sell faster if it had Hakas. :wink:

I get all the other modifications he mentions in his for sale ad, but how on earth did he manage to increase the freeboard?

You can see a picture of Dogs cockpit area here http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=7276&start=270 Scroll down to "Seats and Seats--WaterTribe 2013" His boat cockpit area is the first picture.

He basically covered everything with 1"- or 2"-thick closed cell foam and glued it on with a contact glue. It makes his AI very comfortable for a tough 4-5 day, 50-60 mi/day camping trip.

Thanks Keith
