I have a T9, which I love paddling; but your post reminds me that I ought really to try some capsize practice in it and confirm to myself that I have a workable way to get back into it in an emergency. I've never yet managed to capsize accidentally, but then I don't sail it. I remember watching a non-kayaking friend turn it over by mistake.
I'm greatly enjoying this thread. Sorry that I don't have a huge amount to contribute, but I'm learning a lot. (Would love to try adding a small sail some day.)
All the best,
Ian

harmony sponsons have been discontinued.
so i did it by myself

i took an inflatible sliproll. upgrade the sliproll with an long tube und inflate the sliproll sitting in the t9
put the sliproll into a tube made by fabrics.
fix this part wirh shockcord to the deckrigging
fix the roll with a fabricstrip round the hull to keep the tube near to the water.
the position is back of the cockpit because there is less waterresistance then beside the cockpit(my wife with her semperit forelle was faster then me *g*)

i am really sad. today i sold my beloved t9 :(
she will be paddled in norway

i hope the new owner will respect this boat as i did.

i tried it - but it doesn't go. vertigo and knees are my problems. and so the t9 is too tippy for me

but i can't live without water. so i'm looking for an inflatible canoe/canoehybrid with higher seatingposition than the t9 any more stability

maybe it will be a gumotex palava
