Wow! Very inspiring... both to make a job and to have more than 2 people on a tandem
You guys are great!
1- Can the sidekicks / awa go on an inflatable? All the pics have them on hard hobies, and the mounts don't look like they'd fit. Love the idea of modding the boat, but don't think I'm going to drill holes in my i14t.
2- 69cpu mention the mast was in 3 pieces for his i14t. I have a 2009, and the mast is in 4 pieces (held together with shock cord) Just checking if they changed the mast (not that I think that would change my plans).
3- How long is the PVC jib "mast"? I suppose I can cut to fit, I was just curious. Likewise, I don't suppose you remember/have notes on how much stay line you had to buy?
4- Anyone use other jib sails? I'd love to use a jib that had a window (or was all clear). Name, cost, et cetera?
5- The base of the jib was described as 2 "Slip Union" parts from the hardware store glued together with a hole for the jib furling line and a karabiner. Is there anything else, or you just pull the line and it furls up nicely?
6- Last but not least, who all have done this? Love to know ALL of your stories, thanks!
PS- 69cpu, somehow I got the impression you are in the DC area... so am I! Feel free to drop me a line if you want to try kayak sailing together sometime. I go with my 7yo boy and he'd love to see some other kids on the water!
