Just bought a 2018 TI, expecting delivery of the new girl in November. Looking forward to getting her here to the remote island of Middle Caicos! :mrgreen:

Ha, ok, done! Internet has been flaky after getting hit by Irma and Maria. (Irmaria)

Yeah, really loving watching this video now. I got the same color scheme https://youtu.be/qg6nc5SM60g?t=67

Picked up 4 more lobster snorkeling in the backyard this morning. That's 40 so far this season just swimming from shore, the new TI should add a whole new level to my lobster hunting game!

My 2018 TI was just delivered to the freight forwarder in Miami on Friday. I'm trying to get it shipped along with some stuff to repair hurricane damage, so I should have it in 2-3 weeks! Very excited! :D

It should have been here Friday, but the barge had some emergency and had to turn back. Anyway, she delivered today! :D Some old flat bed truck with a boom dropped her into our driveway at Mudjin Harbour.

I got the trailer assembled after work, the boxes were badly beat up but everything seemed to be there. (I didn't bother to wire in the lights, Middle Caicos is not that kinda island. Neither is our old Wingroad station wagon.)

I know I have some damage to one of the poles that's on the main kayak where the outriggers plug in. It looks like one of the ends was mushroomed out a bit. Hopefully everything will still plug in ok and allow us to float for Christmas. I'll get a better look at everything in the morning.

Merry Christmas everyone! :mrgreen:

Merry Christmas !

.. was just down in Grace Bay for a weeks vacation. I had to "deal" with only sailing a Wave and a Getaway but at least it was relatively quiet so I didn't have to wait my turn :roll:

Good Luck with your new rig and I hope no damage was done. If not contact your dealer.

Happy Holidays
