i have about 400 miles on my ti and i still stress that the mast is going to break…. thats the only thing i dont like about this boat.

Looking good. Thanks for the tips. Recommend adding a few more tips to squeeze some speed. Mirage Drive – in or out?, Mirage Cassette Plug in or out, Dagger board – up or down (depending on up wind vs. down wind). Down haul adjustments? Weight distribution – fore vs. aft, starboard vs. port (depending on tack). Tips for larger waves 5+feet – surfing the backsides. Love the TI …. just wish the sail configuration did a bit better pointing into the wind…. no boom hurts here.
