Hi everyone I am new to the forum. I have an Outfitter with sail and I noticed that when I use the mirage as daggerboard in tandem mode I have much less control then in single mode. Has anyone else had this experience? I think it has to do with two daggerboards being less hydrodynamic

Likely due to the two spaced apart. Hard to overcome them when trying to turn. Maybe have the forward person pull them up when you tack or need to maneuver.

Or secure the forward fins up against the hull with the bungee hook (or at least when turning)! 8)

New to the forum. Bought a Hobie Mirage Oasis tandem a month ago for me and my wife. We love it and go out 2 -3 times per week (I am semi-retired). I was having these same issues when using the sail. Looking forward to trying out some of these tips this weekend.
