Hello folks, I'm the rotorhead, from from Hawaii. Been sailing for over 40 years, used to teach folks to sail on Hobie 16's back in the 80's in Florida. Got away from sailing for a while (except windsurfing)...last 3 summers I've looked at TI's, this year I finally pulled the trigger. Shoudl've done it earlier.

Still working the kinks out, but overall very happy. Here's a short video from Father's day, first sail out in Kaneohe Bay, and just wonderful.

Great video! I've had a TI for 3 or 4 months now and it's without doubt my favorite style of boating. You may want to check out the Hakas. For fishing they are incredible. I find that the fam likes the trampolines but if I'm by myself or with a friend we just go with Hakas.

I bet the TI is a blast in Hawaii!

Aloha No Rotor,

Looks like your launching off the marine base campground. Lotsa reef, turtles and dolphins there.

Group sail is planned for 7/28 on Kbay and the sandbar. Can you make it?

Welcome to the forum rotor and you're off to a good start with a really nice video. Beautiful spot you've got there. You're more than welcome to add your videos to here....https://vimeo.com/groups/193689.... We have 27 videos now and growing. It's just good to have them all located in the same location.

Looking forward to seeing more.


Don't take life too seriously................it ain't permanent.
