Lol i was going to suggest that to Eoin but i thought it might be rude ;)

I need to spend a few hmm lot of hrs in a glass yak to see if it/i can do what i want to do, but i want another yak for sure, one that will do what i want and glass will do it but will glass do what i want? Hmmm i should have borrowed a glass yak for a week b4 buying the PA maybe, but now im thinking i was meant to get the PA ;) but i think at this stage i would gave to go second hand, no moving parts to learn on glass lol.

Don't give up on the PA there is not another yak on the market that can carry that much gear.....I am struggling to downsize my fishing gear into the AI from the PA and those glass things are even smaller.
Your mind is like a Parachute! It only works when it is open

Oh! No way i would give up on the PA im absolutely loving it, i think i made the right choice however this doesn't change my mind in regards to glass, I've always loved the idea of being out on the ocean in a glass yak, this is from an early age but it was not something i ever considered as i couldn't justify the cost involved for a pleasure craft, however fishing from said craft had never entered into the equation ;)

I will be buying another yak at some point, whether this is glass or another hobie AI or revo im not sure, but this wont happen anytime soon lol

Nice yak Nathan,

Do a two off custom Eoin, I'll have the 2nd.
Then Cheater can do a one off custom on my trailer to carry a plastic outback and a glass stealth.
