Sorry Miami AI I should have posted earlier. We did go it was the week of the coldest of the cold fronts so the fishing was only good on the first day. You can find pictures of the trip at:
Another interesting post about the trip is by Paul Sedwick in a sailing canoe with an AI sail at
I would post more but it's all on the other sites. Chekika has since done a Flamingo Choko paddling trip I don't know if he will post a report.
As far as the performance of the AI on the trip: It hauled an incredible amount of stuff plus my 205 lb butt in realy rough weather with no problem at all. I sailed in 20 - 25 kt winds and choppy seas most of the way and although it was real wet I never was fearful of an upset and nothing broke. The hull did take on the normal amounts of water and anything in the aft end sat in water. Most of my legs were 3 hrs and I usually took on about a quart or so of water.
