3D printing is nothing new to boats, but I think the potential for people to create new products and ideas is just beginning. I’ve printed parts and pieces for various projects, but hope to create some actual products that could help boaters.
2016 was a year of major projects on Grace, one which will not likely be repeated in terms of the depth and complexity. That is mainly because she was brand new to us in 2015-2016, and had some gaps in major systems we needed while out on the water.
Recently I had the chance to spend a few weeks working on a local marina WiFi system. The biggest issue was the perception of the boaters throughout the marina, and the need to invest in equipment to improve the signal within their boats.
