  • This has been so much fun - both in the building and the watching. I thought that my bit was OK, but you have taken that pig's ear and made something wonderful out of it. I hope to see dozens of these things rocketing around ponds all over the world, terrifying ducks and amazing onlookers. Bravo!

      We got it done, Scott. I'll take that extra hull you provided, turn it into a master, make my own hull tool, and will start pooping these things out as a commercial kit. I'm going to charge enough to keep myself interested, and sell them through Nautilus Drydocks. We'll see who goes for the eventual retail price on these kits.

      A lot of guys promise to buy a product in development, but only a fraction pull the trigger once they see the price when the item become available.

          Not yet, Andy. I can't use the hard-water excuse owing to the availability of one indoor (Lynnhaven Dive Center) and one outdoor pool (Jewish Community Center). Just been busy with other paying work. No pay, no play!
