Yeah, I just ran over to REI and saw that they have STS kits. They only had the small at the location here. I need to dig up that thread and see what the mod is. I don't need this happening again...ever.
Yeah, I don't know how excited I am to drill a hole in my deck. Then again, it probably doesn't matter. I looked at the sts kit. I have some other ideas on how to make it stay put on the tail. First off, I have to figure out if the long kit is enough to make up for the gap from the end of the skin to the tail.
The sts kit that they had the REI at Park Meadows was just the short one. So I need to find a long kit to see if I think that will work. So far I got a hunch I'll need to buy new skins=lame.

Okay, I called Voile a couple weeks ago and said "Pretty please, can I have a taper-tail from Voile for Christmas?" and all that. Not surprisingly, I got "IF we have something to show, and IF we have a couple of extra that we feel like selling, there will be info on SB.com".
I can't stand the waiting!!! I want something NOOOWWWW! Even dirty, sketchy, shaky rumors will be better than nothing. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Has anyone else even called to let them know of your despserate NEED for new Voile Products?
If you need me, I'll be rocking in the corner, counting the days...
p.s. Some details have been changed for dramatic effect. I'm pretty sure they didn't think I was nuts when I called. I think.
As long as we are voicing petty concerns, how about for 2007 sewing the stuff bags for the Voile skins about 1/2" wider? Does putting the skins away really have to be such a pain? Or am I the only one with this problem...
(PS This is not a cry for advice on how to fit the skins in the bag. I know it can be done via precision folding.)
