SO KEWL!! Im into this!!
hard to tell, but do you have the peddle system in?
Also wondering about the rudder and how much it can take. Looks like you have it up upon entering but then its down once you are paddling. Are you actually using the rudder at all or is it just free flowing. Wondering how much torque the rudder can take against such whitewash energy since its only plastic.
Really looking foreward to your vids---
Thanks for posting up--Im getting excited to see this in motion
I put a sailing kit rudder on the back for better tracking - it makes a HUGE difference. The inflatables track surprisingly well for what they are (a raft!), but they have a lot of surface area and are easily affected by wind. The big rudder totally helps. Not sure how strong it really is, but I guess I'll find out! And yes, I had the revolution drive in, and was experimenting with a few different techniques for launching. The instinct is to paddle, and its nice to be able to brace and lean into an oncoming wave, but the speed of the fins is unmatched in that kind of water - so I they are a much better weapon for that kind of war. You really cant do both, it's just too much to paddle, peddle and steer when a wall of water is charging at you. I also really need to be able to brace with the boat (you give that up if you try to do both, making a nock down much more likely).
