It's awesome! Where are you planning to sail it, Captain?

I am in the SF Bay Area, so port of Redwood City, Oyster Point and Pillar Point. Basically where the wind is blowing the strongest. I love pushing these things to the limit... All part of my adrenaline addiction

Yes, Hobie 1953 tiller connector kit does fit the Dragoon. I still need to set the toe on the rudder and then try it out on the water when we get some wind.

One of the things I was worried about when buying this boat was parts. I am finding that is shares or can use many parts from other boats which is great as long as I don't bend a cross bar or destroy the mast!

I’m hoping you guys can help me with some decisions on mast rotation.
Since I updated to the Wave/17 mast base and ball the mast is over rotating. I purchased a Hobie 18 rotation bar to attach to the mast and boom and I am using an14/16 gooseneck. With my current set up I can install the rotation bar under the boom, or I can install an 18s gooseneck on the mast and install the bar above the boom.
The later model Dragoon has the bar above the boom and it uses an 18 style gooseneck.
Please let me know your thoughts and pros and cons.
