Hi Bob,
I do not know what type of ply it is but I was not happy with it as the 5 sheets were all different ( I had them sent from Brissy as the local ply was $85+ per sheet)

John,
The hat is out of shape because of the headwind as the okwata is so fast it flys through the water! :wink:



And thanks to all for the kind words, it is not finished yet but I can use it now. :lol:

hi John,

The water I have to share with the waterski people/boats, but they do make some good waves to play with?

Good one Bruce - did the Okwata get up on the plane behind the 1m barra? :D
Cheers, Bob

Well Bob, let's just say the Okwata will move sideways, backwards, and wherever the Barra wanted and was very stable, at no time it felt out of control and we did get up a little speed, but I was using 3kg line so was carefull, by the way they were all released for next time. :D :D
