Better than today!! Yesterday was beautiful. A drysuit with fleece underneath is a beautiful thing. Think I took 8-10 swims getting footage for the website etc, only thing cold was my hands.

Not one bump or bruise from climbing in either. Forgot how much of a game changer these things are. Ive always been able to climb in the boat but every time I smack an elbow or knee on the frame, box, strap, etc.

Is there a switch to flip for upside down mode.

Yes it does. The switch auto flips when you do. it works best upside down if you rig it near the midpoint of the boat. Even if you rig it fairly close to the frame it will work upside down, just not as easily. I want to get some footage up upside down usage but I'm really gonna have to psche myself up to go out and flip. Didn't have time the other day.
