So mine finally came in! Many thanks to Alden's of Sunapee Mark and Mike were awesome and put up with my nagging until it came in... They also convinced me to wait instead of grabbing an Outback before this was released. Mostly rigged up just need to finish a deck connector on the Lowrance unit. I took it out today and it was great. Pretty nice having steering on both sides and the center Plano hatch is great too. Not too bad loading in and out of my truck with a bed extender.
I registered it with Hobie yesterday and they emailed me saying it was the 38th unit built so there must not be very many of them out there yet.
