Review:
The Cruiser model is as big a sail as I wanted even for our usually mild SoCal winds. I got it for fun or emergencies, not typical day-trips. Rigging was simple and secure across the bow seat of my Hobie Oasis. With both mirage drives held vertical, I was able to make way downwind of course and even across the wind but paddling would be much faster in most conditions. In the rare event I'd want to sail it with a paddler in the bow, I might consider screwing extra padeyes in to the hull, because my existing deck lines are kind of floppy. Furling isn't that tricky, and I bungee it down because it won't fit into my hatch. Would be 5 stars but the window gets pretty wrinkly and hard to see through. This near-perfect sail canot make a kayaker like me a 5 star sailor!

I ordered the Cruiser sail for my kayak and I love sailing down the lake in a stiff breeze. However, the clips that attach the sail to the kayak are rather flimsy and they keep unattaching themselves from the eye hooks. I called the manufacturer about the problem, but he only recommended tying a loop to the eye hook and clipping the sail to that.

Used the sail a few times so far it takes a little to get use to but once you get going it will really push you along.After a long day of fishing its real nice to just kick back and let the wind take you home.I beleive that if you have a rudder system to steer with it would really help out.When you use your paddle to steer it does slow you down unless you pull the paddle instead of using it for drag on one side.overall it is a great purchase.

After watching the folding videos and mastering this "art", we launched into a nice breeze that carried us much further and faster than we had anticipated. Quality construction, but a bit light on the instructions on how to use the sail in the included brochure. If you have a computer, bone up ahead of time in their FYI's and videos. Basically, it's a novel sail that is fun to use and really works. It helps with the paddling, easily pushing the canoe faster than you can paddle. We'd recommend the sail, with the knowledge that you eventually need to paddle back up wind. I'd suggest a "Downwinder" or do your upwind paddling first.
