This setup is really fun. Got the big rudder and sidekicks before going out the first time. No wind! Peddled around all morning. On third "sail," wind kicked up quite a bit after in the water and I was really glad I had the "training wheels" on. My power boat takes about $100 in gas each time, but with my kayak/sail boat I can enjoy the water without fuel. I don't think I'll do much fishing with the sail up, though, but it is great fun riding the wind.

Added oversized rudder and turbo fins, and found noticeable improvement in kayak handling while under sail.

Easy to use and works as advertised. Hardly turns the kayak into a sailboat, but lots of fun. Highly recommend AMA sidekick be utilized to prevent capsizing in stiff breezes.

As a sailor new to kayaking and rather lazy to boot, the sail has been a lot of fun. I would advise people not to use it in winds over 10 mph. I have been playing with the foot pedals while sailing; there is a lot of leeway with the pedals split and the fins up. There is a bit of weather helm it wants to come up into the wind, which is probably a good thing. Overall it is a lot of fun and appears to have a lot of thought put into it.

I use the sail on a Mirage Sport - works great. I made a furler for it, using some PVC and line; with that, I can furl the sail when the wind kicks up. The furled sail does make for some windage, though. Adding a caribeaner to the aft padeye makes the line move easier. I havent been able to rig the sail on the water maybe a function of old age and being less nimble, so the furler helps. The pedals in the mid position act like a daggerboard. Not a speedster, but it works.

The sail is easy to set up and is a great alternative out on the lake. I do suggest changing out to a longer rudder when using the sail.

The sail performs better than expected. Wish it were 30 sq.ft. vs 20.5 sq.ft. Sail has been used in 20+ mph winds with excellent handling. No complaints.

The sail works pretty well. I was expecting that it would only be useful downwind, but it works surprisingly well to windward (I didn't imagine that I could keep a kayak from capsizing while going to windward). The mirage drive works well as a centerboard. I am working on figuring out how to rig the sheet so it works satisfactorily.

works better than I thought it would. Lots of fun. Rigged a self furler for it so it can stay stepped even if not in use or easy to furl if wind is too strong.
