What medium do you use Jon? Crayon? Pencil? Water colour? Oh that's right, ink! ;)
I caught a hairtail. Weird looking phucker.

Nah its a warranty hull. I split the old one and it couldn't be repaired. I didn't get a choice of year. Happy though.

Jon I have never closely looked at a Revolution, so I am curious what is what looks like a bungy cord for (45* cord shown from the rudder to the rudder securing bungy) ?

May not be necessary to do on the Revolution but on my Outback my rudder would occasionally get caught on the cleat the rudder securing bungy goes over, so I simply swapped the cleat and the cord adaptor thingy over i.e. unscrewed both and replaced them on the opposite side to there original placement.

Looking forward to your pimping.

Not every day you get a second chance. All the lessons learnt from the previous hull can be implemented in this one ... should be great for you Jon.

This happens on my Revo often. Great tip.
