Well, I'm probably going to end up picking one up. Not quite yet as all the ponds here in CO are frozen right now. I couldn't stand having it and not being able to sail.

So far, you know what we know, which is about what you've read here. Wish I had more information.

well.... I just ordered one from tower with a $40 off promotional discount and free shipping, so I thought that was a pretty good deal, the free shipping they offer though takes a couple weeks usually, but when it does arrive I'll post some pics here for you guys.

also, yea... that manual was a pretty big download but it's nice to see what your getting, glad I did see it cause it looks like the servo arm will not work, looks like you need a winch servo type, hull is to narrow for the arm.

till then....

I just ordered one tonight from Tower. I only have one other boat, TT ETNZ haha
Ive been happy with it, just needs some work to get it where it can handle the wind.


Oh if you want the ETNZ to sail properly you got to get some better sails.

Well.... to my surprise tonight at dinner time the Brown Truck showed up at my door with "The Box!"

So I dragged it in the basement and took some photos to share with you guy's as I opened it!! very well packed - the boat box was in a outer box with air pillow surrounding, no damage at all...HURRAY!!!

here we go....
