Just wanted to say thanks to all the great info posted on here. Over the past few months I read everything and really learned a lot.
I always loved the water growing up and living in San Diego and in the 80's I had a Hobiecat that I LOVED. Haven't done much in the past 20 years but started to get the bug about 2 years ago as I like photography and just being out there. A neighbor used to let me use his plastic hardshell kayak but I was never confident taking my cameras with me so I looked at more stable inflatables never even thinking Hobie did these. A few months back I went to lunch with a friend at the San Diego Yacht Club and speaking that day was the people at Fastlane and they brought all their Hobie Mirage boats including the inflatables and I got to try them out. I finally saw exactly what I wanted with the i14t.
Today I called Fastlane and ordered my i14t as they did not have any Sundance color in stock. Now I can't wait and I am itching to go. I know I will be calling in sick at work the day I get it!
Thanks again for all the great info here.
