Yes, although I need to get some picture up and finalise all the rest of the parts that come in the kit i.e what straps buckles etc. But yes the basic plate that goes in the bottom of the boat with the strap fixings on is done and works really well

Might I pre-reserve a chance to use the proto at tyne tour?

Well the OC1 got its first outing at the Nottingham freestyle champs this past weekend, despite only getting the first one out of the mould late on Friday! Lack of straps on Saturday didn’t aid performance but the addition of a lap strap for Sunday resulted in a more respectable performance. Tweaks to follow; make it slightly wider to make it a little less twitchy and refit the outfitting with something for better than hotglue!

Nice! Looks like you're on the right track. Can't wait to see more pictures. It's nice to see some more "real" freestyle OC-1 design development. Looks like I've got some work to do... back to the shaping room.
