Thanks for that.
+ one ;-)
That was great .
Great thread, thanks George, and Barry for the previous one.
Thanks again George!
I would rather be someone's shot of whiskey, than everyone's cup of tea.
Thank YOU for all your "thanks," you are all very welcome...
Oh yeah, more 'show and tell' here is a project I was consigned to do for the Navy SEALS DEVGRU (and SAIC) see below. Basically, all I can say is this board is for two divers, who have their own individual propulsion devices. Then they jump on this "wakeless" sled (side-by-side) and they get extended range compared to just free swimming. They approach their "target" ditch the craft, do their task, then return to vehicle. (That's a Maurice Cole super deep concave surf SUP collab project in the background of the first shot.)
Color is correct for Maurice's venture to the Dark Side ;-)
Funny story, we used iFoam for that surf SUP, 8'3" I think, almost 1" of concave at max. We CNC milled everything but the concave, not knowing where it was going design-wise. Maurice starts shaping the iFoam (texture like an inside-out sock, and toughness of leather,) and he gets about half done. By 'Half Done,' I mean he shaped the left side only, then asked me to step in and "finish and clean it up a bit" while he took a break. Break? 3 days later he comes back. Said he went on one of his "bush walks" (we were in San Diego,) and was hoping I'd finished up in the meantime. Not sure who "borrowed" that board, it went pretty good...
Lost in Space , comes to mind :-)
Maurice has a lot of energy for his age :-)
