Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone at this site is a pilot,and fly's a flying dingy. I'm looking for some info on these crafts. I've seen the one at the jobbie boat party,but never got a chance to talk to the pilot.

Thanks for your input.

Remind me later, I have a business card at home and he told me he would take me up for $50 for a test ride. Those run close to $20 grand for a new one.

A friend got a card last year in Muscamoot. The guy was giving test rides for something like $25 for 15 minutes (maybe discounted from the $50 because he could pick up and drop off people easily there.)

Cool website. I would be a little concerned about one step in the 'Wing Set-up' section - "(14) ATTACH JESUS STRAP." Yikes, that sounds important, wouldn't want to leave that off...
