Hobie I9s

I have been working in southern OR for the last 4 months. I spend every other weekend there. The weather is great this time of the year and I wanted to kayak fish in the area.

The Kayak had to meet the following goals:

1) transport in rental cars. (No Racks)

2) Needs to be able to fit in airplane for return trip to Texas.

3) fit in 5 x 10 storage locker

4) Stable enough to fish out of.

5) Peddle power would be nice (Have revo 11 and pro angler 14)

So I bought the hobie i9s.

It is easy to stow and fit in trunk of cars. (reason i did not choose I12s)

It is stable but not the fastest kayak around. It has enough room for minimalistic fishing 2 /3 rods and small pack.

Could do with sided rudder (can steer like a pig at low speeds)

Seems to be very well made.
