Our new ride... Hobie Mirage Oasis

We've got a new ride...

Yesterday, Bob was lucky enough to catch a classified on Craig's List minutes after it was posted for a 14-foot, 2-person Hobie Mirage Oasis kayak.

Similar to this, but a previous model... no fishing rod holders :(

The seller took us out to Green Cay Marina to look at it and it was a no-brainer... excellent condition.  The price was the cost of one Mirage drive unit by itself! I'm so excited.

We peddled it back to the boat and it was a piece of cake even with towing the dinghy behind us. When we've finished our afternoon coffee we plan to take it for a spin. Go peddle power!

To make us "street legal" we plan to buy something like this:

Here's a video from the Hobie web site.

See why I'm excited by our newest purchase... We can also make a new dinghy and swap the Mirage Drives between it and the kayak. Cool...

So it goes!
