This will be a great thread to keep going where we can see what people are doing to their boats on a day-to-day basis.

This weekend and yesterday I began building a t-handle for my cat trax. I plan on putting cradles on my cat trax so this t-handle is a must if I want to use it solo. More pictures soon to come once it is finished!

Dreamt about the day when the replacement parts that were stolen from our tandem island will arrive and we will be able to spend our first days of the year out on the water with it.

Looks good. How do you remove the handle during transport?

Screw fitting at the junction of the handle and the cat trax. I'll try to take more pictures later today.

Not my Hobie, but I strung 4 or 5 Hobie tramps up today at work.
