Yo Zach,

Where are you going to fabricate these? Considering that you're not likely to make your first million making these but I'd like to see you get close, count me in on the idea that if you provide the bunk space I'd like to spend a day doing some chop sawing on PVC, slicing rope and putting these dooo-daaaddds together. While we do it we can discuss some other million dollar ideas I've got, come up with some new million dollars ideas and allow me to enjoy your company again. When done we'll do a float.

Ron

I want a RED one for the port side and a GREEN one for starboard. But orange is as close as it gets. Oh well.



I just need to decide if I want one on each side of the boat or if one is enough.

That meme is wonderful. You'll have to try and beat the shakes for another month or so, but I'll try an get some expedited so you don't have the DT's too long.


I love the interest from everyone, am looking forward to finalizing everything at the end of the month and getting these things back in everyones hands. I have started making some of the parts and am getting jigged up so things should start getting cranked out pretty quick once it gets going.

I'll be manufacturing them in the shop. Thanks for the offer. I have a pretty good handle on things but if you want to come down for a float you are welcome.

I'm glad I can get my fix here soon.

What are the key differences in this setup vs. the "ladder in a bag" setups that are currently available?

The Rapid rung self stows and is always at the ready. Pull down, step up, forget it. There is no fighting it into and out of the bag, making it much more convenient to use, every time you want to take a dip.

The Rapid Rung has bigger diameter steps as well as wider steps giving your foot more purchase and making it possible to get two feet on a rung at a time. It also doesn't get twisted up, in fact it is designed to not be able to twist if it is under tension at all. It is also attached at two points instead of one making it super stable.

The self retracting rungs also make it less likely for a foot entrapment issue since there are no dangling open holes. In the rare event someone does slip off the grip tape and in between rungs while it is deployed, the thin 1/8" rope (2000# test) is able to be cut quickly in an emergency with your river knife. In the rare case the rope does have to get cut, I can replace the rope instead of buying a whole new ladder.

There are enough differences that it has a patent.
