Well, my wife doesn't know it yet but I'm the proud new owner of a Hobie Outback. Got a demo model for $1100, which seems like a pretty good deal so I sprung on it now rather than waiting until the spring when chances are there will be a lot less demos/last year's models/deals out there.

My yak experience consists of paddling after bonefish in the Bahamas for a few days but that's about it. Anybody want to show me the ropes this spring?

Welcome to the world of Yak Owners TJ. You will have to get up with the Yak Masters Sean Juan, Fishawk and Penguin. Let them them show you how it is done.
I so want to get a Hobi Pedal Power Yak after hearing from owners of them.

I was probably somewhere about dead center in this map (covered by cloud cover unfortunately). Zoom out for perspective on where this is:
