Here's some ideas. http://www.seqic.com.au/how-to-sail-a-hobie-island/hobie-island-spinnaker-kit-installation-guide/

I order the spinnaker kit last week and plan to use a couple if the mods this guy mentions. Lots of good info there.

Does anyone in the Bay Area have one of these?  I have been watching more people get them on YouTube and they look cool.  I just don't know the pros and cons while fishing.

I've seen videos on how it increases speed quite a bit.  But the problem is that it makes transporting the AI much more difficult.  For me it's tough enough with all the fishing gear.

New to sailing.  Looking to go fishing with other AI owners.

I got the kit and have installed it but have not had a chance to try it out yet. It won't affect transporting the kayak at all, as everything fits in the small "snuffer" bag. The down sides that I can see are increased setup time (5 to 10 minutes more), and there are a lot of additional ropes that could get in the way when fishing.
