Came across this dude on youtube. Thought you might like to see the crazy/cool deck plan on his older AI. He took the Haka and other ideas and turned it into a small fishing/party barge. :shock: Even added freeboard/splash guards to the sides.

Some clips of him under sail at his site too.

Obviously, he's having fun with the boat. :mrgreen:

Amazing and all on an AIv1! :shock:
No wonder he increased the gunwale height. Wouldn't have been too much freeboard with those mods.
I wish Hobie would consider a TI on steroids much like they have done with the PA's.
A mini trimaran kayak sailing craft but with flat decks as seen in the above video, factory Haka, outboard mount etc but with a planing hull!
