Those things are totally cool!

They fly those things down here by the hundreds! As a matter of fact, I was talking to a guy who landed and anchored next to us last weekend on an island we frequent.

Here's one coming in over Passage Key. They fly over there constantly. Nick knows why.

I saw one at LOTO the guy landed in the party cove on a friday, then I saw him on sat in front of the Salty Dog, he came in for a landing and stuffed it, he flipped forward, and the wings sank. All you could see was and upside down raft.

What a trip, the guy was OK. He was demoing one to try and sell them.
