Hi everyone - yes, that's me and my family on a recent TI outing to Lake Hodges on one of our factory demo mules - our demo boats get all sorts of stuff put on them while they're in our fleet and over the past few seasons this boat has been through the ringer.
1) On the left photo that's just a lance cleat - I think this was put on for one of our jib kits at some point... that isn't coming to market that I'm aware of.
The beauty of the TI is the simplicity of the rig, and how quickly you can set up and break down, and ease of use (proven here by my ability to sail with my 2 boys ages two and nine months) so adding a jib just hasn't really been shown to add much beside a tiny bit of sail area, by having it though you lose several of the positives of the original design...so not sure where the jib is heading.... or if it is going anywhere at all, we'll see (surely it isn't my decision, but if it were, my vote would be -no- to the adding of a jib onto the TI)
2) The other photo on the right I'm not even sure what it is...likely its just a ram ball - trust me guys, there's nothing to either of those things... it's not a part of the boat or any future projects. They likely got put on there by one of our fishing staff here at some point for taking out to the kelp beds to catch some sea bass or something
