Hi everyone!

After surfing around the web for years, and renting hobies whenever i got a chance, i finally made the plunge and am the proud owner of a Hobie 18 Magnum.

I will be taking it Pensacola Beach this Saturday/Sunday/Monday and lack one thing - the knowledge to rig it up. I have compiled the necessary list of all guides that could help, but would love to prevent the certain frustration of trying to rig it up the first time by myself.

If any of you local knowledgeable guys would be willing to come down and show me the ropes i would really appreciate it. I would be happy to pay for your time with cash and beer.

Thanks in advance and look forward to joining the club.

Look up key sailing, they are on the Pensacola beach and should be able to answer all your questions.

And I happen to know that Captain Kirk likes both cash and beer (Coors Light)!

You may be able to launch soundside at the ramp on Quietwater Beach just west of Key Sailing. Probably crowded on summer weekends, though.
