Maybe dried wasabi green peas
I am suggesting something much bigger than "beach sand".

Thanks guys for the support!
(It's what keeps me going...)

Progress...
Let's just say, retarded!

I'm still waiting for my material order to arrive.
Graham numbers will be delivering it on his way back from JHB on Sunday after attending the WC F3J's
I still have to face off the backs of the moulds,
But....
I polished up the internals, so I could start measuring the cloth and inflation bladder templates.
It's looking good so far!

Our friend Bob took a nice 4th in the F3J finals, I hear.

Colors? How about *ahem* goldfish orange? Can you add glitter, or will it add too much weight?

The F3J teams are going to hate us!
They experienced extreme weather conditions including snow!
(It never snows here....!.)
Well done to the USA Team!

Hey Lil Stinkpot,
Glitter may work....!
I sat and watched the Spanish synchronised swimming team in the Olympic final......
Just love the swimsuits!

I was reading the Team USA blog. Brrrrr! It was funny when they all tried to stuff into a 5-seater car with four up front, in a stick shifter. Yeouch.


Being Goldfish, I was thinking colors like these:
