New carbon eyestraps

June was a month of distractions, delays and details that slowed progress on the the nesting dinghy.
One of those distractions was a turning point in our carbon eyestrap production.  Demand for these little hand crafted eyestraps has increased. This is good news! However; our previous production method was not meeting demand effectively.
It became evident that we needed to improve our production method quickly so we settled on a new design and we had a mold mold CNC machined. We combined the “long” and “short” sizes into one size for the single eyestrap. This size can still hold 2 lines or bungee of up to 1/4inch diam. The following photo shows cross sections of all three designs and the next photo shows a top view comparison.
From now on, we will only carry the new size and they can be ordered via the order form on our website or send us an email.
