Great to hear!! I met you at the Annapolis Show in 2016. I'm in NC as well. We talked about Amazon and Watauga Lake.
Hmmm...wonder if my Bob would be interested in introducing it to the Bar Harbor ME area?
Sailing isn't just fun! Sailing isn't just competitive! Sailing is science! Next time your sailing put your hand overboard (if you have a long arm) and feel the force of the water! Next, put your hand in the air and feel the force against your hand! You will notice that water has much more force! Tiller Tender was designed to keep the Tiller and the Keel in line producing less drag on the hull! I repeat, if you have a lee or weather helm, most likely your sails are the problem! If you want to go straight set your tiller in your Tiller Tender and then set the sails! GO STRAIGHT GO SAFE, and GO FASTER!! TILLER TENDER!! ... See MoreSee Less
