    I use a drop or two of super glue when putting the old rudder and arm together, once glued it doesn't move. However when you want to pull them apart for what ever reason it can be difficult.

    Hi Guys,

    Yeah I definitely drifted off the radar! I have a super demanding job that just doesn't allow me the time to get to the beach as often as I did. I'll keep following what you guys are up...

    Higher rated mah batteries with more cells = longer runtime.

    Catching only 1 wave every 3 minutes = longer runtime

    John, the storm's over, nothing major to report, no fatalities or even any injuries. The storm was about 1500km north from where Cananzi and I live.

    How's the swell over in Maui?
