Potential Kite Boat


I'm thinking of losing the rig on my windrider 16 and getting a Charger or Neo 2 type kite. You steer with your feet so I think this boat would work well for kite power...

Todd went a similar route with an arc powered Hobie Cat 17 that he refurbished.

Oh I cant get over the coincidence, I'm right now involved with the purchase of a WR16 (used) and was thinking the very same thing. Please let me know of your progress or feel free to contact me concerning your windrider. Chris

Will do Chris! I hope you enjoy the 16 you are getting. It's a fun boat as is and hopefully even more fun with kite power.
