Hello everyone!

A couple years back, I had the chance to sail an AI while visiting my folks in Virginia. Needless to say, I fell in love with the entire concept. After a bit of research, I decided that a TI would be the best choice for me and the family.

Today I took the first step in the process and bought my trailer from Harbor Freight. I will start converting it over to a TI trailer during the next couple of weeks, with Late Feb as the expected purchase date of my TI.

This forum has been so helpful in answering questions that I have had and I hope to be a contributor myself as I develop my own solutions to many tasks and challenges associated with this type of sailing.

I have finally come full circle. I learned as a teenager, over 35 years ago, to sail on a Hobie Cat 14. Soon I will return to the water under the same banner and I could not be more excited.

Dave :)

Welcome Dave. Glad to have you on board. There are a million different ways to adapt a trailer for a Hobie as you will see from some of the posts. The search facility in this forum is excellent and saves a lot of time in finding ideas.
Best of luck and don't forget to get that camera of yours snapp'n. We're all keen to see your 'investment'.
