This is the one that started it all. It's like crack, just don't even try it, or you'll be hooked.
Just so happens that a guy I work with kayaks (with his cat, but that's a whole 'nother story) and he had a friend that was selling hers. It was a screaming deal for an almost new Hobie Maui, so before I knew it, I had me a boat!
Here I am under the assumption that I was actually going to get to paddle this boat once in a while. This lasted all of 10 minutes.
Well, we were still in possession of the borrowed kayak, and after trying out my new Hobie, I realized that the other one was comparable to trying to paddle a bathtub. Unfortunately my kids figured this out pretty quickly too and then there was nothing but fighting and whining about paddling the Hobie (and no matter how much whining I did, the kids still wouldn't give me a turn!)
So, now we're the proud owner's of two Hobie's. The single seater Maui and a tandem Kona. Let the whining cease, and the paddling begin!
