Hello out there... new 2013 Hobie Oasis owner here...picked it up from Backyard Boats in Northern VA two weeks ago.
Here is it coming out of the warehouse and getting set up:
We trailered it home on our recently purchased used trailex trailer:
And yesterday we took it for it's maden voyage in a local lake at a county park. We found since the lake had been flooded to form it and lot of trees were submerged just under the water that we want to migrate to a bigger lake which we will do next weekend. We want to evolve into river runs on the Potomac and others, and then out into the bay as our experience level increases. A sail in Spring 2013 is next...
I have tons of hobbys but we wanted one we can do TOGETHER, hence the tandem. Here are a couple of snaps from yesterday's short trip where we had fun, broke nothing on the boat, and did not sink!
If there are other folks in the area who had an Oasis, perhaps we can connect sometime. Bob - Fredericksburg, VA
