We build it. You fish it.
We are introducing our new Crucial BT20 spring 20024. We thought we'd have it on the market and ready to roll much early but the devopment process is taking longer than anticipated.
This model has been in the works since 2015. It was designed by Timm Smith who passed away in October of 2019. In May of 2022 we made the decison to move forward on it. We discovered that Timm had a co-designer. We emailed him the CAD files for review and changes were made.
The first hull was born 11/22/2023. It was an emotional day as the process from plug-mold-finsihed product is incredibly pain staking.

THE VIP-VACUUM INFUSION PROCESS
Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP) is a technique that uses vacuum pressure to drive resin into a laminate. Dry materials are laid into the mold and the vacuum is applied before resin is introduced. Once a complete vacuum is achieved, resin is literally sucked into the laminate via carefully placed tubing.
